AUS Regular Season kicks off tonight

An excellent matchup to get the regular season started in the AUS this evening as Acadia visits Saint Mary's in a game between a pair of teams hanging in the Top 10 discussion.  Both teams had decent pre-seasons with SMU (4-4 overall but 3-0 at home in the pre-season) proving to be a much tougher out on their home floor than on the road.  The Huskies have home wins against Lakehead and Ottawa, both touted as potential Top 10 teams depending upon the poll or observer.  Acadia (5-2 pre-season) is coming off a 12 point loss to Ottawa in which they gave up a double digit lead.  Tonight's game in Halifax at the Tower begins at 8 PM AT (7 PM ET) and is available live! on the Internet.

Head coach Ross Quackenbush will look to build upon a moderately successful season last year, where the Huskies went 14-6, good for third in the Atlantic University Sport conference behind powerhouses Cape Breton and St. Francis Xavier.
