Photos: SFU basketball teams drop home openers to Western Washington Vikings

Men's and women's squads are both 0-1 in conference play.

Home cooking is usually great, but that wasn't for SFU's basketball teams on Saturday night (Dec. 3). 

Playing for the first time at home during the 2022 season, both the men's and women's basketball squads dropped decisions to the Western Washington Vikings in West Gym. 

Jessica and Sophia Wisotzki both had strong nights for the Red Leafs, with Jessica scoring 20 points on 50 per cent from the field (seven of 14) while her sister Sophia scored a career-high 17 points going six of 15 from the field but SFU would drop the game 69-60. 

To date during the 2022-23 season, the women now hold an overall record of 2-3 and are 0-1 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play. 

The men's team started the game strong before Western Washington would take the lead with roughly seven minutes left in the first half and did not look back. 

The bright spot for the Red Leafs was setting an NCAA-era record with 13 blocks. 

SFU was able to pull within 10 with five minutes left in the game, but couldn't muster enough for a comeback win. 

David Penney was the leading scorer for the Red Leafs with 17 points (six of 12 shooting). 

The men now hold an overall record of 3-4 and are also 0-1 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play.
