Stangs Stamp Griffins Late - Preseason Action

Shaking off the rust is how Western Women’s Head Coach Brian Cheng, described how he feels his team played Thursday evening.  Although the term usually refers to getting back into the swing of things after a long layoff, Cheng is more than likely looking for the return of the basketball touch and feel, court vision, sharpness, and conditioning, when referencing said rust.  These things tend to hibernate in players during the off season and Cheng knows this all too well.  Western took the court against the MacEwan Griffins at Alumni Hall on Thursday evening.  MacEwan is located in Edmonton, and the Griffins are in the Canada West conference of USports.  MacEwan may not be a familiar sight to the Mustangs or their fans, but who they are and how many times Western faces them was not as important as execution and effort.  Perform or sit, that’s how this game unfolded for Mustang players.
