A full slate of afternoon and early, mid and late night games across the country today as we enter mid-January:
AUS 2 PM ET
Memorial at Dalhousie… In the first of two in Halifax, Tigers pulled away last night despite not having 6’10” Sasha Kappos in the lineup. Seahawks hung tough all night in the loss.
UNB at Cape Breton… V-Reds transition was in full display as UNB scored 59 first-half points in the first of two between Reds and Capers this weekend. 6’0″ Javon Masters continues to move up the U-Sports all-time scoring list.
OUA West 2 PM ET
Laurier at McMaster... Marauders 3-10 and in a battle for the final playoff spots hope to have injured 6’3″ wing Miles Seward back after an ankle injury has sideline the sharpshooter for the past 2 games both McMaster loses. Golden Hawks, winners of two in a row, are 5-8 and tied for fourth with a very young but deep and athletic team.
Canada West 3 PM ET
Victoria at Manitoba… Bisons take a five-game winning streak into this weekend’s rare Saturday/Sunday double header in Winnipeg. Manitoba has overcome the loss of virtually their entire starting lineup from last season to sit at 10-4 and with within view of a first round playoff bye and second round home playoff series. Vikes are 6-6 and need victories to remain in the playoff hunt.
RSEQ 6 PM ET
Concordia at McGill… Second of a home-and-home between the bitter Montreal rivals after Redmen won by 7 at the BeeHive on Thursday. Given the revised playoff format – RSEQ has dispensed with the one-location Final 4 format with all playoff games to be played at the home of the higher ranking team – tonight’s game will go a long way to determine who finishes in one of the top two spots in the conference.
AUS 7 PM ET
Saint Mary’s at UPEI… Panthers started strong last night however could not maintain any consistent offense in losing the first of two in Charlottetown. 6’5″ Nikita Kasango, averaging over 20 ppg as a freshman, had a rare off night scoring, not reaching double digits for the first time all season in league play. 6’8″ Osman Barrie missed last night’s game with an ankle injury.
St. FX at Acadia… The Axemen dominated from start to finish in Antigonish this past Wednesday night and hope to continue to push toward a first place finish with another victory tonight.
OUA East 8 PM ET
Carleton at York; Ottawa at Queen’s; Ryerson at Nipissing; Toronto at Laurentian.
