Saturday's Games

Sat. Oct 16 Schedule

Algoma at Western  The Mustangs will again likely be without 6'5" All-Canadian Andrew Wedemire and 6'6" Garrett Olexiuk and are coming off a victory over Memorial on Thursday.  Algoma is coached by former Laurentian Voyageur guard Thomas Cory.  New Brandon Bobcat guard 6'2" O'Brian Wallace, is a former all-conference guard for Algoma under Cory.
Brock vs. UNB 5 PM AT  The V-Reds have won 3 straight after yesterday's convincing win over York and Brock is also trying to start a streak after winning their last 2 including yesterday's comeback thriller over UPEI on a last second tip in by 6'1" Cedric Kasango.

Lakehead at Saint Mary's The first game of the young season for the Huskies should showcase their new stable of talent, some of which comes from the U.S.  Lakehead is playing the sixth game of their long east coast road trip.


York vs. UPEI 7 PM AT  Both teams suffered disheartening losses on day one of the UPEI tournament with the Lions setback to UNB especially surprising given how well York finished last season.
Bishop's at Acadia 7 PM AT   The Axemen come off a last-second victory over Lakehead while Bishop's was defeated soundly by Dalhousie last night.
Memorial vs. Ryerson (Naismith at Waterloo)  The Sea-hawks look to continue their winning ways after defeating Waterloo in their own gym last night.  The Rams get 6'7" Bjorn Michaelson back after last night's loss to Laval.
McGill vs. UVic (House-Laughton at Carleton)  Vikes look to be more consistent at the offensive end after giving up an early double digit lead to Windsor last night while the new-look Redmen licks their wounds after being hammered by Carleton last night.
Concordia vs. McMaster (Hawk Challenge at Laurier)   As it turns out, this game will determine the champion of the Laurier tournament with both teams winning last night.  Marauders won despite shooting about 30% and not scoring a field goal for the final 7 minutes of the game against CBU in which the Capers committed 30 turnovers.  Stingers staged a dramatic comeback culminating in a Decee Krah 3 that gave them the lead for good with about 20 seconds left.

8:00 PM ET
Laval at Waterloo (Naismith) Rouge et Or continue their push to the Naismith championship against the home side reeling from last night's loss to Memorial.
Windsor at Carleton (House-Laughton)  How Carleton deals with the great inside play of 6'7" sophomore Liam Phillip, who 26 points/20 rebounds last night vs. Vic, will go a long way to settle this one which is a rematch of last season's OUA Wilson Cup championship won by the Ravens.
Queen's vs Brandon (Graham Construction Saskatchewan tournament)  Two teams without a win on the weekend fight for third in the Huskies annual tournament.
Cape Breton at Laurier (Hawk Challenge)  Capers have lost 5 in a row vs. CIS teams and were without starting pg Jimmy Dorsey last night while the Hawks blew a big late lead to lose to Concordia last night.
10 PM ET/7 PM PT
Laurentian at Fraser Valley  Expect a flurry of threes in this game as the Cascades arrive home after a 2-1 record in Ontario while the Voyageurs hope to bag at least one win in their tour of Canada West schools in BC.
Calgary at Saskatchewan (Graham Construction Shootout championship game)  The championship game of the Graham Construction Shootout between CW rivals should decide which of these teams gets a pre-season Top 10 nod in the coming polls.  Calgary's depleted back court should see plenty of pressure from Huskies pair of experienced, talented guards Jamelle Barrett and Rejean Chabot.
