One CIS game tonight and it is in Halifax where cross-town rivals Dalhousie Tigers and St.Mary's Huskies meet at the Tower (St. Mary's home gym). After a strong showing at their own Rod Shoveller Memorial tournament during the holidays and then a pair of wins against Memorial, Dal looked to be eyeing a spot in the top half of the AUS. However, since then the Tigers have lost 5 of their last 6 games including a pair of 4 point games and Dal is now fighting for the sixth and final playoff spot in the AUS. Poor starts and getting behind early by double digits have been the norm during the recent rough streak and Dal, currently with a 4 point lead on both Memorial and UNB, need a victory. St. Mary's second half has been characterized by inconsistency as the Huskies have gone 3-4 with a win at St. FX but a loss at home to UNB. As well, a 1-3 record in 4 point games after the holidays has left St. Mary's comfortably in 5th place in the AUS, far enough away from falling back having to fight for a playoff spot but too far from the top of the standings. After tonight, both teams will host Memorial this week: St. Mary's on Friday and Dalhousie on Saturday. All 3 games are 2 point games.
