5 PM ET
Brock (21-6) vs. Ottawa (26-5) (OUA Wilson Cup Bronze Medal Game)… Both teams still garner hopes of an “at large” bid with the winner likely part of a two or three team scenario that will be determined on Sunday night. Ottawa defeated Brock at Montpetit Hall in November in their prior meeting.
Saskatchewan (20-8) vs. Calgary (23-5) (Canada West Bronze Medal Game)… Dinos still have a chance for the “at large” bid while, practically speaking, Huskies chances – even with a win – are slim. Teams split a pair of games in Calgary in January during CW regular season.
5:30 PM ET
Acadia (13-17) vs. Dalhousie(25-7) (AUS tournament semi-final)… Tigers have won all prior meetings this season but games have been close. Axemen must win tonight and then follow up tomorrow afternoon with an AUS championship to get to the Final 8. Tigers have clinched a spot as the tournament host.
7 PM ET Ryerson at Carleton (OUA Wilson Cup championship game)… Arguably the top two teams in the country right now and are coming off a classic two weeks ago. 6’9″ Eddie Ekiyor was inconsequential in the first meeting and Ravens need his rim protection and inside scoring against Rams dynamic wings 6’4″ Ammanuel Diressa and 6’3″ Adika Peter-McNeilly. 5’11” Myles Charvis was also instrumental in keeping Ryerson in the prior game while Diressa completely shut-down 6’4″ Connor Wood. Could be a preview of the National final.
7 PM ET UQAM (14-14) vs. McGill (20-5) (RSEQ championship game)… Redmen come into the game battling the injury bug as 6’2″ RSEQ MVP and Defensive POY Dele Ogundokun injured his ankle late in last night’s semi-final victory over Laval and his status for tonight is unknown. Citadins dominated the glass over Concordia and hope to produce what would be a notable upset.
7:30 PM ET Saint Mary’s (22-9) vs. UNB (15-9) (AUS tournament semi-final)... Varsity Reds come off the bye last night to face the Huskies, who survived against X last night, getting 28 points from 6’5″ Theon Reefer, who according to a review of the official game log got away with 6 fouls (1st quarter: 8:25 foul; 2nd quarter: clean; 3rd quarter: 9:11 foul, 3:42 foul; 1:36 technical foul; 4th quarter: 4:37 foul (his 5th) and 0:45 foul). Teams split a pair of regular season games with Huskies losing at home prior to Christmas but winning back at UNB in February.
10 PM ET Manitoba vs. Alberta (Canada West championship game)… Bisons are one of the hottest teams in the country, winning 18 of their past 20 games including three consecutive road wins against the two teams generally considered to be the top 2 teams in Canada West during the regular season: UBC and Calgary. Alberta showed their balance last night with 6’7″ Mamadou Gueye stepping up. This game is very important in determining Final 8 seeding as the winner probably gets a Top 5 seed while loser likely 6, 7 or 8. Golden Bears swept a pair of Canada West games at Manitoba before Christmas before the Bisons captured the Wesmen Classic championship game with a comfortable win over the Golden Bears over the Christmas holidays.
