Hoops from the Heart Update

By all accounts, this past Wednesday night's "Hoops from the Heart" at the University of Manitoba was a great success. According to new Bisons Head Coach Kirby Schepp "It was a great event that raised money for St. Boniface Heart and Stroke Research Centre as well as the basketballs for inner city kids project. During player introductions in the pre game, each athlete and coaches for all teams presented a new basketball to an inner city child."

Both CIS teams won their games as Winnipeg Wesmen defeated a group of Western Canada all-stars 71-69 on a buzzer-beating tip in by Wesmen forward Mike James. In the night cap, the Bisons defeated a second group of Western Canada all-stars 89-79.
