Jon Hovingh grew up as a UPEI Panthers fan and now fulfills a dream in joining his favorite childhood basketball team (article in Charlottetown newspaper).
At least two games involving CIS teams today as UBC-O visits UVic and Brock hosts Redeemer in St. Catharines.
Tomorrow (New Year’s Day) in Halifax, the Shoveller tournament kicks-off with 4 first-round games. Injury-riddled Acadia, which just went 1-2 in Winnipeg at the Wesmen Classic, bounces back after one travel day off, meeting RSEQ entry Concordia Stingers at 5 PM ET on 1 Jan 16. Acadia is likely to be without injured guard Ben Miller who hurt his arm in the opening game of the Wesmen Classic – he was seen with his right arm in a sling on the Axemen bench. Acadia struggled mightily in the final two games of the tournament.
Other first round action at the Shoveller:
Dalhousie hosting Mount Saint Vincent (ACAA/CCAA) “feature” game at 7 PM ET/8 PM AT
Saint Mary’s vs. UQAM (RSEQ) will kick off the tournament at Noon ET/1 PM Atlantic.
St. FX vs. UPEI at 2 PM ET/3 PM Atlantic time.
All games take place at Dalplex in Halifax. We plan to cover this tournament in detail.
