Thurs. Jan. 11th/07: Scores & Articles from across the country

In the only CIS game on tap this evening, Trinity Western (7-7) visits UCFV (3-11) as the Spartans expect star guard Brian Banman to return after being out for an extended period with recurring knee problems, originally stemming from a serious car accident he was involved in 2 1/2 years ago. TWU severely missed their all-conference candidate last weekend, incurring a pair of double digit losses to UVic. UCFV broke a long losing streak with an exciting, last second victory against Regina but has lost the first 2 games of the season series with TWU both in Langley by 8 and by 1 in which Banman hit three free throws in the dying seconds to give the Spartans the come-from-behind victory.
