Hoops: OUA opens up second berth to West team

The invaluable cishoops.ca has clarified that OUA might hold a special playoff for its second berth into the CIS Final 8 men's basketball championship.

The division runners-up will play off for the berth if the Carleton Ravens, who have the host team berth, also win the OUA East, which is a distinct possibility. That's the fair thing to do, since it ensures the most deserving teams get to Scotiabank Place. If the OUA West's second-best team is better than the East's second-best team, so be it.

That said, it's the East that has three teams in Mark Wacyk's new Top 10 — the No. 1 Ravens, No. 8 Queen's (!) and No. 10 U of T. The West has just a single rep in No. 2 Windsor, although the Brock Badgers, Guelph Gryphons and Western Mustangs are going to be heard from in that division.

  1. Huh. With Queen's and Toronto doing so well, the OUA is going to be tough this year.

  2. But Queen's is DUE! Every 50 years they win something in men's hoops.
