Huskies capture conference bronze: Miyazaki wins third-straight defensive award

It was the combination of an established veteran and a motivated rookie that led the Huskies women’s basketball team to a bronze medal March 3 and 4 at the Canada West Final Four tournament in Regina. The veteran came in the form of the Dogs’ best player throughout the regular season, Katie Miyazaki. The fifth-year guard not only won her third-straight Canada West defensive player of the year award, but also earned a conference first team all-star mention for her strong performance this year.
