Four AUS teams kick off their regular season with the first of a pair of weekend games while there are 2 games in the "Q". The OUA and Canada West have every team in action once again as the CIS basketball season is in full swing. Feature games include: #5 Alberta hosting Saskatchewan again (Bears won by 7 last night) and #6 UBC once again hosting an emerging Fraser Valley team that led late in last night's first game between the 2 teams in Vancover. The feature OUA game is in Kingston as #8 Queen's, coming off a comeback win against Brock last night, hosts the Guelph Gryphons, on the verge of a Top 10 spot themselves. In the "Q", McGill Redmen open their season on the road in Ste. Foy against Laval, which lost a heartbreaker last night at Bishop's.

8 PM Bishop's (1-0) at UQAM (0-0) The Citadins open their regular season hosting the Gaiters, who feature emerging 6'1" All-Canadian candidate Junior Nicolas, who had 30 last night in a dramatic win against Laval in Lennoxville.

8 PM Laurier (0-1) at #10 Toronto (1-0) The Blues look to make it two in a row against the Kitchener/Waterloo entries while the Hawks need to rebound after last night's surprising loss at Ryerson.
8 PM Waterloo (0-1) at Ryerson (1-0) The Rams have gone to probably Canada's biggest lineup with 6'11" Igor Bakovic, 6'10" Joey Imbrogno and 6'7" Boris Bakovic supported by 6'2" veteran Brandon Krupa at the point, which could provide matchup problems for teams.
8 PM Guelph (1-0) at #8 Queen's (1-0) The most interesting OUA matchup of the evening has the Gaels, who are in the Top 10 for the first time in their history, hosting the Gryphs, who are on the verge of a Top 10 selection. Both teams defend, rebound, are deep and feature top-level players. This is the feature game in the OUA tonight.
8 PM #1 Carleton (1-0) at Lakehead (0-1) The Thunderwolves expect 6'3" Lerry Williams back in the lineup after a one-game suspension and hope that 6'6" Warren Thomas can stay out of foul trouble which limited him to 1 minute in the first half against Ottawa last night. The Ravens played last night without 6'7" Kevin McCleery - no word on whether or not he will be available this evening. Audio play-by-play as well as Video Webcast (Pay-per-view)
