Sunday's Late CIS vs. NCAA Results/Articles

CREIGHTON'S CAVEL WITTER drives around an unidentified Saskatchewan Huskies defender as the Bluejays defeated the Huskies last night in Calgary.

CIS teams won 4 games on Sunday, bringing the total number of wins to 5 this weekend with 11 games still to be played today. Still, the NCAA teams lead the series 32-5 by my count with results from a pair of games from yesterday still not in. Last Labour Day weekend, NCAA teams won 23 of 26 games played. Here are last night's last scores:

Air Force 97, UBC 67 The Falcons used a 12-4 run to end the third quarter to break open a tight game to lead by 15 and then dominated the 4th quarter to win by 30. UBC could not overcome 23 turnovers as the Air Force shot 12-25 from 3 point land and committed only 10 turnovers themselves. 6'3" Chris Dyck had 15 points on 4-9 shooting from 3 point land to lead the T-Birds while 6'6" Langara transfer Kyle Watson added 14 points/7 rebounds and 6'7" veteran Matt Rachar added 10. Tim Anderson led Air Force with 21. Air Force powers past UBC plus the Box Score Also an article by Howard Tsumura in this morning's Vancouver Province UBC's young hoopsters in for the long haul

Creighton 92, Saskatchewan 66 Dane Watts led 5 Bluejays in double figures with 15 as Creighton used a 14-0 run early in the second quarter to break open a tight 2 point game to lead 44-26 at the half. It was 80-46 early in the fourth after the Jays ripped off a 22-3 run bridging the third and fourth quarters and led by as many as 36 to glide to the easy win. 6'2" Rejean Chabot led the Huskies with 19 points Bluejays trounce Huskies plus last night's Box Score

Marquette 76, Victoria 65 NCAA All-American, and NBA prospect, Dominic James scored 22 points to guide the Marquette Golden Eagles past the University of Victoria Vikes 76-65 Sunday night in front of a 1000-plus crowd at McKinnon Gymnasium. Despite playing without last year's top five scorers, the revamped Vikes' lineup showed plenty of promise. Marquette, who is projected to be a top 25 team and played in four NCAA tournaments in the past six years, was unable to pull away. Even when Marquette went ahead by 14 late in the third, UVic answered back with a 10-3 run. But in the end James scored six points in the final minute and a half to secure the Marquette victory. Here is Mike Tucker's report from UVic sports information New-look Vikes hang tough with Marquette and here is the report from the Marquette web site complete with a link to the box score Golden Eagles Complete Tour With 76-65 Win Over UVic

Oklahoma 107, Trinity Western 58 The Sooners remain undefeated on their Canadian trip with a convincing win over the Spartans Sooners Cruise to 49-Point Victory

Also, highly-touted CCAA side Douglas College defeated Boise State 109-100 yesterday as Bol Kong went off for 40 points for Douglas. Douglas faces Oklahoma this morning at noon ET.

There are no results in as of yet for Boise State/Fraser Valley and Idaho/Fraser Valley games played on Sunday.
