- Calgary took down No. 5 Alberta, 95-74 in a foul-filled front end of a home-and-home between rivals. Going by the scuttlebutt at cishoops.ca in the summer (what would be a hoops equivalent of Hot Stove League ... the Cold Beer League?), the Dinos were the next-big-thing team in Canada West. Between high-leaping Henry Bekkering, his brother Ross, and an emerging junior forward, Robbie Sihota, the Dinos are a tough matchup under the boards.
- One night ahead of its date with Carleton, No. 2 Windsor fell 78-61 to the Ottawa Gee-Gees. From the looks of it, the OUA West's best backcourt of Ryan Steer (1-for-12) and Kevin Kloostra (3-for-14) were just ill. Ottawa lead guard Josh Gibson-Bascombe owned the night -- 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting, plus six assists.
- No. 10 beating No. 8 isn't really an upset, but Guelph did top the U of T Varsity Blues, 79-75 in overtime. The X factor might have been shooting guard Jonathan Moscatelli, who had 16 points. The first tip-off that there's a story with Moscatelli is that the CIS website lists him as a third-year student, but first-year player. He missed two seasons due to twice blowing his ACL, but he's finally able to play.
