Video: UBC Thompson Rivers semi-final


Realizing I am going a bit video mad, here is a video recap of Thompson Rivers upset win over UBC in the Canada West semi-final that allowed WolfPack to book their place in the Final 8.

Highlights include a nasty dunk in traffic by 6’6″ Jordan Jensen-Whyte plus the key moment at the end of the game when, trailing by 1 with under a minute to play, the T-Birds had two chances at lay-ups that both rolled out followed by on the very next possession a transition 3 from the top of the bowl by 6’11” Josh Wolfram, giving TRU a 4 point lead with about 30 seconds remaining and ultimately the deal-sealing shot for coach Scott Clark and team.

‘Pack faces Carleton while UBC takes on #1 Ryerson in the first round on Thursday.

Realizing this game happened in October, but as it turns out the loss was the only non-conference loss of the season for the Redmen.  These teams are on the same side of the bracket so a victory by both in their first-round games against Canada West opponents (McGill takes on Canada West champion Calgary Dinos while Rye gets TRU WolfPack, runner’s up in CW), sets up a rematch of this tight pre-season game.

Wilson Cup Recap: Video Action


Ryerson did another outstanding job hosting the Wilson Cup with the championship game especially filled with drama, athleticism, shot-making and arguably the top two teams in the country at present.

Ryerson’s student newspaper the Eyeopener has video evidence from Friday’s Rams win over Windsor.

 

As well as a tremendous video recap of the OUA championship clinching win over Carleton on Saturday night.

I’ve recently found some more time to surf around and have discovered that a small sample size of CIS programs have taken to providing fans with video summaries of their games.  By far the most professionally produced and consistently informative pieces is done by Western, providing a balanced view of the game with highlights from both teams.  Queen’s also does a very good job to that end.  There are also some that provide video summaries but only of highlights from the home team; suffice to say these unbalanced accounts rarely provide an accurate reflection of the actual game so this site will not share those accounts.  I am certain there are others out there – it has only been the past week or so that I’ve done searches centered on the home teams and I hope to share more of these going forward.

Video: Javon Masters breaks UNB career scoring record


Congratulations to Masters who last week became UNB’s all-time leading scorer in regular season games.  The humble Masters credits fifth-year pg Matt Daley among others with his success.

The V-Reds have a chance at clinching second place and a first-round bye in the AUS tournament with a victory this evening at home against Acadia on Senior’s Night when Daley will be honoured.

Gales blow a five-point lead with 2 minutes remaining as #1 Ryerson vaults into the top spot in the OUA playoff seedings by virtue of a clutch 3 with 1.2 seconds remaining from the right wing by 6’3″ Adika Peter-McNeilly.  6’3″ Sukhpreet Singh reinforced how deserving his season is of OUA all-star honours with 23 points and some tough plays down the stretch   Video highlights:

“We”: Manitoba Bisons regular season review


Head Coach Kirby Schepp has done a wonderful job building his program to this season’s strong third place finish in the Pioneer Division, earning a first round bye and the right to host a Canada West Quarter-Final playoff series beginning next weekend.  Bisons will host Fraser Valley Cascades, second-place finishers in the Explorer.

This comprehensive video includes pieces with Schepp and his main stable of key players including Wyatt Anders, Illarion Bonhomme, Keith Omoerah, A.J. Basi, Amir Ali and Justus Alleyne.
