Sea-Hawks need finishing school, MUN men looking for first win as they host SMU

Memorial Sea-Hawks men's basketball coach Peter Benoite is concerned his team still can't seem to put together a complete game.

That, he says, has to stop.

Gryphs fall from long range

It was a tale of two teams Friday night at the Mitchell Athletics Centre, and they were both wearing the predominantly white home uniforms of the Guelph Gryphons.

On Friday night, the Cascades were charitable guests at the University of Calgary, surrendering 32 turnovers in an 80-62 loss to the Dinos. The following night in Lethbridge, the UFV men took much better care of the ball, coughing it up just eight times in an 82-77 win over the Pronghorns.

Team frustrated with their start

At 1-3, the University of Regina Cougars men's basketball team is certainly not where it wants to be.
