Simon Fraser University's (SFU) basketball teams appear to be on different paths in their respective 2022-23 campaigns.
The women have won three out of their past five, including a 66-57 victory on Saturday (Jan. 7) over Central Washington — nationally ranked 24th in NCAA Div. II play.
Jessica Wisotzki, Sophia Wisotzki, Gemma Cutler and Emma Kramer combined for 53 points that night.
The Red Leafs hold a 5-4 regular-season record and 3-2 in conference play, which includes an undefeated road stint of 4-0.
Wisotzki has been a major contributor to SFU's successes this season.
Her 23.1 points-per-game average (PPG) is second overall in NCAA Div. II, only trailing Abby Spurgin of Hawaii Pacific (25.1 PPG).
Meanwhile, SFU's men basketball squad have lost four in a row.
In their most recent match, the Red Leafs dropped a 73-52 decision to Montana State Billings on Saturday.
As of this publication (Jan. 10), they hold a record of 5-10, but each win as been at home or against a non-Great Northwest Athletic Conference opponent.
The women will face Western Oregon in their next game on Thursday (Jan. 12) at 7 p.m. at home.
The men will head north for a two-game road trip through Alaska, playing Fairbanks on Thursday and Anchorage on Saturday — both with 8:30 p.m. tip-offs.
