The U of T Varsity Blues, who are bit of an upstart team, swap spots with a more traditional power, UBC, in the 5-7 slots. The writers and TV guys also bumped Windsor and Cape Breton up up a slot, while giving more credence to Laval, which is playing the best basketball in the Quebec conference.
For the record, here's the media and coaches' polls, side by side:
- Carleton / Carleton
- Brandon / Brandon
- Calgary / Calgary
- Acadia / Acadia
- Toronto / UBC
- Ottawa / Ottawa
- UBC / Toronto
- Cape Breton / Brock
- Windsor / Cape Breton
- Laval / Windsor
Also receiving votes in the media poll: Brock (49), Alberta (27), UVic (15), St. FX (7), Concordia (7) and Saskatchewan (1).
Also receiving votes in the coaches' poll: Laval (62), Concordia (53), Alberta (15), Western (5), Guelph (4)
The media only ranks 12 teams, while the coaches rank 15, which explains the disparity in support for Concordia.
Again, a hat tip to Mark Wayck, Wayne Kondro of the Ottawa Citizen and Neil Foshay from St. FX for pulling this together.
