Finishing one of the best conference seasons in program history, the Golden Bears entered the Canada West post-season with a conference-best 19-1 record. Led by a trio of Canada West all-stars, including Brody Clarke, Mamadou Gueye, and Austin Waddoups, Alberta was propelled to their stellar season by both a top 10 offence and a top 10 defence in Canada. Their team defence, which has long been the backbone of the Golden Bears, led Canada West allowing just 66.7 points per contest, the third best mark in U SPORTS.
After earning four decisive wins in the conference quarter-final and semifinal, the Golden Bears enter the U SPORTS Final 8 as one of the tournament favourites, having been ranked inside the U SPORTS Top 10 all season.
