UFV Cascades Basketball – Conference Schedule Released

Fraser Valley (Dan Kinvig) – The University of the Fraser Valley basketball teams unveiled their 2022-23 Canada West conference schedules with the season set for tip-off in early November.

The Cascades women’s and men’s teams open the campaign on the road, traveling to Edmonton to face the MacEwan Griffins, Nov. 4-5.

The UFV hoopsters host their home openers the following weekend, as the Manitoba Bisons visit the UFV Athletic Centre for games Nov. 11-12.

The coming season marks a return to a conference-wide regular-season schedule, after the Cascades played a B.C.-only slate in 2021-22 amidst COVID-19 restrictions.
