Saturday’s U-Sports action: 10 games across the country


3 PM  UBC-Okanagan at Western…  The rested Mustangs look to bounce back after a loss to St. Clair College earlier this week against the Heat, playing their third game in 2 1/2 days after last night’s loss at U of T.

3 PM ET  Cape Breton vs. Saint Mary’s (Eric Garland Memorial Tournament at UNB)… Capers remain in search of their first win over a U-Sports team since 2015-16 after blowing a 17 point fourth quarter lead yesterday afternoon against UQAM.  The Huskies unveiled their newest pair of back court impacts in 6’2″ Nico Brauner and 6’5″ Nikita Kasango but faded in the second half of a loss at UNB.

4 PM ET UNBC at Mount Royal… Second of two between the Canada West rivals who are not scheduled to meet in regular season play.  No word on who won yesterday and stealth mode in selected parts of U-Sports basketball continues.  Memories of Maxwell Smart, the Chief and Agent 99 especially and the legendary “Cone of Silence”.  Wayne Thomas does have a very good preview of the Cougars on his Canada West Hoops site.

5 PM ET Lethbridge College (CCAA) at Lethbridge… Cross-town match-up between the Kodiaks and Pronghorns.

7 PM ET  UQAM at UNB (Eric Garland Memorial Tournament at UNB)… The host Varsity Reds took over in the second half to defeat Saint Mary’s yesterday as 6’0″ Javon Masters and 6’2″ Chris Spurell came alive.

7 PM Centennial (CCAA) at Windsor… Lancers open their home schedule against Canadian teams with a game against the OCAA-based Colts who were defeated 107-61 by York Lions last weekend in Toronto.

7 PM Memorial at McMaster… Both teams come off decisive losses last night with Marauders playing their third game in 3 days while the Seahawks are in the middle game of their three game tour of Southern Ontario with a noon Sunday match-up at York to close their tour.

8 PM ET  Guelph vs. Concordia (Guy Vetrie Memorial Tournament at UVic)… Gryphons are playing small as 6’7″ Sean Carey and 6’9″ Emmanuel Chukwu injured his knee in the walk-through/shoot-around yesterday afternoon while the Stingers lament their opportunity last night to knock off Carleton, a game which Concordia led most of the way including in the final 2 minutes before Ravens pulled it out.

10 PM ET  Carleton at Victoria (Guy Vetrie Memorial Tournament at UVic)… Vikes look to pull the upset after Ravens struggled to come back to defeat Concordia last night.

10 PM ET  Seattle Mountaineers at Trinity Western
