  2. Two losses doesn't mean the end. If the favourites sweep the final weekend, the Huskies would finish 12th and be on the road for a play-in game.

  3. The Huskies are 21-7 all-time against Regina, their last loss on home court against the Cougars came on November 3rd.

  4. Third-year guard Lawrence Moore's 35.7 minutes per game and 22.9 points per game are both third-highest in the conference. 

  5. Saturday night the Huskies will honour fifth-year Alex Unruh in a pregame ceremony.
