Canada West Summary: Sweep puts Dinos back in the hunt

Wayne Thomas provides a Canada West recap, beginning with Calgary's dramatic overtime victory at home over Manitoba to sweep the weekend series.  Saskatchewan Huskies swept a pair of games at home from Alberta Golden Bears, winning again last night 88-75 despite a late Bears comeback attempt that got it to 8.  In the game, Huskies guard Jamelle Barrett, who led the way with 30 points, also tied the single-season school record with his 178th assist, tying Showron Glover, who set the record last season in 35 games.  Barrett has played 29 games and is likely to break the record when Saskatchewan faces provincial rival Regina Cougars in Regina on Thursday (teams are playing a Thursday-Saturday home-and-home set next weekend).  UBC continued to push toward CW regular season pennant with a 95-59 win at Regina as 6'5" Brent Malish had a career-high 33 points in the win.  Fraser Valley stayed in the playoff hunt by salvaging one win in Winnipeg 75-68.

Big Sweep Keeps Hope Alive

For the 1st time this season, the Calgary Dinos sweep a weekend series, with a nail-biting 100-91 overtime win against the Manitoba Bisons on Saturday in Calgary. In a game of attrition, the Bisons fouled out all their postmen; Calgary shot an amazing 31/45 free throws for 70%, and Manitoba hit 18/24 for 75%.

Can't wait until the Huskies get their paws on those Cougs.
This is like a pit bull going up against Fluffy the Cat.
Sask will tear Regina a new one Thursday and then rip them another one Saturday.
And home cookin' won't save these Cats hides like they found out against UBC last week.
Even if the Regina refs serve up an all-you-can-cheat buffet, the Huskies will still win by at least 20.
