Canada West Update from Wayne Thomas... Spagrud Scores Winner with 7 seconds left as Huskies Win Game Two Andrew Spagrud has put the Saskatchewan Huskies into a 3rd and deciding game against the Alberta Golden Bears in the best of 3 Semi-Final of the Central Division of Canada West. His jumper with 7 seconds left in Saturday's game in Edmonton allowed the Huskies to stay alive in the playoffs, and finished off a 20 point and 11 rebound game for the 5th year All- Canadian. Saskatchewan, which trailed 32-21 at the half, exploded for a 26-8 blitz of the Bears in the 3rd quarter to take a 47-40 edge into the final frame. Kyle Grant scored 17 pts., and Rob Lovelace added 12 for the veteran Huskies team. Alex Steele hit for 12 pts. for U of A while Harvey Bradford and CG Morrison notched 10 apiece, as Alberta could not seem to hit shots with the same regularity as in their Friday win. The opponent for the Calgary Dinos in next week's Divisional Final will now be decided on Sunday afternoon at U of A, with one group of seniors moving on, and one playing their last CIS game. T-Birds and Vikes Advance to Pacific Final at UBC 72 Fraser Valley 66 ...

Cougars win game 1 of the Great Plains Semi- Final with Bryden Wright scoring 20 pts., as Erfan Nasajpour cannot play for the Wesmen because of an injury suffered last weekend.
