    Game log: Friday, February 1 – 18 points, 8 rebounds, and three assists in 85-75 home win over UBC / Saturday, February 2 – 40 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and one block

    Making his final statement in his quest to be named the CW Player of the Year, fourth-year Bear Brody Clarke led the Bears to an upset sweep over UBC with a monster weekend. 
    Clarke finished his weekend with 58 points, 19 rebounds and seven assists, as the No. 6 ranked Bears swept the No. 4 ranked Thunderbirds in Edmonton.

    The Toronto, Ontario product led the Bears with 18 points and eight rebounds on Friday in their 10-point win over UBC. He then followed that up with one of the best games in program history on Saturday. Clarke finished with a career-high 40 points on 15/18 shooting, becoming just the fifth Bear even to score 40 in a game, and the first since 2008. 

    He also added 11 rebounds and four steals, recording his conference-best 14th double-double. Clarke finished the season second in conference scoring with 19.8 points per game, while leading U SPORTS with 11.0 rebounds per game. 

    The second-seeded Bears will get a bye through this weekend’s play-in-series, before hosting a CW quarter-final from February 14-16.
