Consider it a simple axiom that an 86 point win is a sure-fire means of consolidating a stranglehold atop the cishoops.ca Media Poll. The Carleton Ravens confirmed that proposition by sweeping all 21 votes in this week’s media poll after flattening RMC 113-27 and then dumping Queen’s 76-63 over the course of last weekend. With just a game to play on their Ontario University Athletics East division regular season schedule, the Ravens are now (27-0) against Canadian competition and (21-0) in league play. The 21 nation-wide voters were almost as unanimous in their selection for second place in the poll, as Brandon collected all but two runner-up votes - Calgary and Windsor received the others - after twice dispatching Winnipeg last week to wrap up their second consecutive Canada West Plains division regular season title. The Bobcats, who finished (20-2) in league play and are now (25-6) overall, will recuperate from the regular season wars this week in preparation for the Great Plains finals against the survivor of the Winnipeg-Regina series. Canada West Central division champ Calgary also earned a first-round playoff bye and will await the outcome of the Alberta-Saskatchewan series. The Dinos finished (18-4) in league play after splitting with Saskatchewan last weekend and are now (22-6) overall. Acadia crept back into fourth place after defeating Dalhousie 97-83 to consolidate its hold on first place in the Atlantic University Sport Nelson divison standings with a (14-2) record. The Axemen are now (20-5) overall. Cape Breton continued to climb the poll ladder by clipping UPEI 73-61 to move to (14-3) in AUS Baldwin divison play and (20-6) overall. Windsor notched its 10th consecutive win to remain two games ahead of the Ontario University Athletics West division pack with a (15-4) record. The Lancers are now (19-5) overall. Toronto slid three spots to seventh after being stunned 76-67 by the resurgent York Lions, who appear suddenly inspired to at least play a modicum of defence. The Blues, now (15-5) in OUA East play and (24-8) overall, continue to have a first-round playoff bye within their grasp with two games remaining on their schedule, both against Ryerson. U.B.C. climbed back into eighth place after victories over Trinity Western and Fraser Valley. The Canada West Pacific champs finished (18-5) in league play and are now (20-5) overall. They’ll face Fraser Valley in a best-of-three Pacific semi-final series this week. Alberta moved up a notch to ninth after twice whipping Lethbridge last week. The Golden Bears, who will tussle with Saskatchewan this week in the Canada West Central division semis, finished (16-6) in league play and are now (21-7) overall. After ripping off their tenth consecutive Quebec Student Sport Federation win by defeating Concordia 67-61 to move to (11-2) in league play, the Laval Rouge et Or climbed back into the poll. The Rouge et Or are now (17-8) overall. Dropping out of the poll were the injury-riddled uOttawa Gee-Gees, who were spanked 64-48 last weekend by Queen’s.
