The Brock Badgers men’s basketball team has struggled to find consistency all year. It has been a tough ride for head coach Brad Rootes who helped lead the Badgers 2008 National Champion run, but progress is coming as he still is looking for his first winning season.

Sitting 5-10 in the OUA West Division, Badgers have been through their ups and downs all season. They managed only one win in November but bounced back in January with three wins, including one against second-place Lakehead University.

Six games remain in the season as a senior heavy team has a chance to push Rootes record to above .500 for the first time since taking over three years ago. However it won’t be easy as the Badgers take on current first place Windsor twice, including the home finale on February 16th.

The women’s team has already hit their peak and is looking for a National Championship this season.

Coach Si Khounviseth was perfect this season until Saturday’s loss to McMaster. The team currently sits ranked 7th in the nation behind Nicole Rosenkranz who has been putting up big numbers.

Rosenkranz is averaging 16.3 points per game while grabbing just fewer than nine rebounds per game — both team highs and also near the top of all Canadian players.

They will look to finish the season strong as they too have six games remaining. Much like the men, the Badgers will have an uphill battle against Windsor as they remain the only undefeated team left in the nation.
