THE LOW DOWN
As the regular season winds down to its conclusion, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (11-5) are playing their best basketball of the season having reeled off four consecutive victories. The Hawks will look to extend that run to five games on Saturday when they take on the Brock Badgers (6-9) in their lone game of the weekend.

NEED TO KNOW
- Laurier continued their winning ways thanks to a 61-55 win on the road over the Waterloo Warriors last Saturday, their second win over their cross-town rivals in 10 days
- the victory was the Hawks 11th of the season, marking the sixth time in the last seven years they’ve hit that mark
- after losing four straight games through the middle of the month, Brock has posted back-to-back victories, including a 60-48 triumph over Waterloo on Wednesday
- Brock’s record has them sitting second in the OUA Central division while Laurier sits second in the OUA West
- two of the Top 4 scorers all-time in Laurier history have led the Hawks all season as Kaitlyn Schenck (965 points) sits third all-time and NICOLE MORRISON (879 points) sits fourth
- Laurier and Brock enter the matchup sitting sixth and seventh in offensive production this year, averaging 69.3 and 66.9 points per game respectively
- the Hawks will look to exploit the Badgers defence which has struggled in 2016-17, giving up 70.2 points per game

PLAYERS TO WATCH
Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (11-5)

G Lauren Jamieson (Oakville, Ont.)
- the third year guard is coming off one of her best games of the season in the Hawks win over Waterloo
- averaging just over four points per game, Jamieson matched her season-high with eight points against the Warriors, as she knocked down two three balls in 15 minutes of action

G Irena Rynkiewicz (Mississauga, Ont.)
- in her second game back from injury, the second year guard re-established her presence on the boards as she pulled down a team-high 11 rebounds
- currently averaging 7.1 rebounds per game, the former walk-on is currently tied for ninth in the conference in rebounding 

Brock Badgers (6-9)

F Kira Cornelissen (Alymer, Ont.)
- the leading scorer in the conference, the fourth year forward is averaging 20.0 points per game but is questionable for Saturday’s game having missed the last three due to injury

G Melissa Tatti (Ancaster, Ont.)
- Brock’s offence flows through the third year guard as Tatti is second in the conference in assists at 4.7 per game while averaging 12.6 points per game
