The WolfPack opened their three-game exhibition series Thursday by brushing back the Glendale Community College Vaqueros 73-58.

“Everyone got a chance to play,” said WolfPack head coach Scott Reeves. “It was nice to get in a game after four weeks off.”

The ‘Pack were led by Taiysa Worsfold (2nd year, forward, Kamloops) with 20 points, while Schuetze had 17 points and Kocs supplied 13.

Thompson Rivers led 35-32 at the half.
