University of Manitoba Bisons coach Garth Pischke is coming up on a milestone in his seasoned career coaching the men’s volleyball team. Now in his 31st season, Pischke is closing in on his 1,200th overall career win heading into this weekend.
The Bisons travel to UBC to play the Thunderbirds (8-4) tonight and Saturday, where the Herd enters at 11-1. For Pischke, history will be in his favour, as he holds a record of 44-15 against UBC.
It’s the first time this season the two teams will meet in Canada West action. The Bisons defeated UBC last season in a two-game sweep at home and haven’t played on the Thunderbirds’ turf since the 2009-10 season.
Fans in Winnipeg can watch the games live online at CanadaWest.TV beginning at 10 p.m. CT.
