Women's Basketball Nov23 - Samar Sajnani-4.jpg

Mustang guard Maddy Horst goes up for a layup during 2015 OUA basketball action against UofT. 

Every week the Purple Pipe Podcast dedicates time to Mustang athletics. We talk to the athletes and coaches who matter most.

Episode 16 features Maddy Horst and Mackenzie Puklicz from the women’s basketball team, who kick off the second half of their season tomorrow on the road against Guelph.

Co-hosts Nathan Kanter and Shane Roberts talk with the guests about how the young team has matured, what coach Brian Cheng is like, what the team needs to improve on, why the girls chose to come to Western and what their future plans may be.

The first episode of 2016 also comes with some changes in the show format, as there is a new game – Mustang Trivia. Although the guests find the questions difficult, it comes down to the final question to determine the winner.


Nathan is the digital managing editor for volume 109 of the Western Gazette. Nathan studied MTP for his undergrad, a mixture of MIT at Western and television broadcasting at Fanshawe, before receiving his masters in journalism from Western last year.

Shane is a fourth year History student at Western. It is his first year as a sports editor for the Gazette. He is also a member of the cross country and track and field teams at Western.
