Sunday's Action:
Four tournament championships are on the line today as the first full weekend of CIS tournament and non-conference play comes to a close. In Waterloo, the Toronto Varsity Blues tangle with Calgary Dinos with the winner taking the Naismith Classic championship while in Ottawa, the #1 Carleton Ravens look to win their own tournament for the 7th straight year when they meet Dalhousie Tigers, who have been impressive in their first two games this weekend. In Charlottetown, the Cape Breton Capers, who lost a big part of their roster to graduation, look to complete a three-game sweep at the Mickey Place tournament with the host Panthers standing in the way of a Capers tournament championship. Finally, the host McGill Redmen can capture their own Redbird Classic with a victory against QSSF rival Bishop's.

McGill 90, Bishop's 58 (McGill Redbird Classic) The Redmen captured the championship of their own Redbird tournament as 6'4" tournament MVP Sean Anthony had 21 points including his 1,000th career point as a Redmen with an emphatic posterizing dunk on Bishop's David Joseph to lead McGill. 6'4" Matthew Thornhill led McGill with 24 points as the Redmen broke open a tie game after the first quarter to lead by 19 at halftime. Bishop's got no closer than 16 in the second half as McGill's superior depth wore out the Gaiters.

Toronto 96, Calgary 92 OVERTIME (Naismith Championship Game) 6'2" Rob Paris went off for 34 to lead the Blues to the Naismith Tournament championship in one of several overtime games this weekend. The Blues played through what could have been a disasterous finish as Calgary's 6'8" Tyler Fidler was fouled on a three point attempt with no time remaining on the clock and calmly sank all 3 free throws to force overtime. Still, the Blues were able to recover to win it in an extra frame. The Blues created 26 Dino turnovers and overcame a powerful 27 point/10 rebound effort from Calgary's 6'8" Henry Bekkering.
