CIS Games Tonight: OUA West & "Q"

We haven't caught up to the CIS Blog for a couple of days as we battle our laptop problems however there are a couple of nice pieces to consider A Promotion we can all get behind talks to the most recent marketing partnership announced by the AUS. In Sunshine is best, you know the rest the talk is again about the inconsistent and/or inaccurate record keeping that makes declaring career milestones a touchy subject. Neate Sager provides his own thoughts on his Out of Left Field blog Going Polling which includes a link to a story in the Halifax Chronicle-Herald by Gordie Sutherland that Halifax will bid for Nationals once again. Greg Layson also has a piece on the media poll

Also, thanks to Barry Hayes from Hoopstars Canada for passing on a link to an article announcing Laurentian's first recruit for next season: Andrew Lalonde (6'0" pg, Sudbury/Lasalle), who will participate in this week's big National Capital Classic high school tournament in Ottawa (Thursday-Saturday).

A rare Wednesday night game in the "Q" plus the usual slate of mid-week games in the OUA West, the only conference in the CIS that consistently tries to schedule single games whereever possible.

8 PM Bishop's (6-11, 2-7) at McGill (11-11, 5-6) Both teams have slumped as the Gaiters have lost their last 7 league games after a fast start while McGill is reeling, having lost 4 of their last 5 with their lone win in that stretch a 55-52 win over Bishop's at home on Jan. 13th. McGill leads the season series 2-0 including a 95-83 win in Lennoxville before the holidays. All of a sudden, a season that began with promise for both teams now includes a late January game with likely playoff-spot implications.

8 PM ET Brock (15-11, 10-5) at McMaster (12-10, 7-8) The QEW rivalry continues as the Badgers look to cement their place in the top two of the division against the inconsistent Marauders. Expect Brock's stable of veteran guards/wings led by 5'10" POY candidate Brad Rootes and 6'2" Mike Kemp to pressure Mac's young backcourt led by 6'2" freshman Tyrell Vernon and 6'1" sophomore Jermaine DeCosta while Mac will look to involve their big, strong posts including 6'8" Mouchtar Diaby and 6'9" Terry Licorish. Listen to the game via the Internet on 93.3 CFMU and/or follow the game using Live Stats

8 PM ET Waterloo (7-17, 4-11) at Windsor (16-5, 12-4) Lancers host Warriors Game can be viewed LIVE! on the Streaming Sports Network

8 PM Laurier (9-15, 6-9) at Guelph (14-8, 9-6) Both teams are coming off loses as Laurier is closing in on "must-win" mode while the Gryphs are reeling after a one-sided setback at Brock on Saturday.
