Spartans dominate Huskies; TRU upsets Dinos

The feature matchup in Canada West play last night was essentially over late in the second quarter as the hometown Trinity Western Spartans exploded to a 17 point lead with a 59 point first half, holding 6'1" Rejean Chabot in check and coasted to an 11 point win over Saskatchewan 102-91.  TWU had 7 players in double figures offsetting a 42 point effort from Jamelle Barrett, with most of those coming in the second half.  Watching the end of the first half, the Spartans played with an urgency and emotion that displayed their wide array of offensive talent.

In other key games, Regina outlasted Fraser Valley in double overtime, hurting the Cascades playoff asperations, although Cascades still hold the final playoff spot ahead of Calgary, which was upset by Thompson Rivers.  Manitoba hammered Lethbridge, solidifying their hold on a playoff spot.
