- Carleton: All quiet on the Eastern (Ontario) front. The Ravens clinched their eighth-straight OUA East regular-season title with 21- and 23-point wins over U of T and Ryerson. Fun fact: Their big three of Ryan Bell, Aaron Doornekamp and Stu Turnbull combined for 59 points in each game.
- Brandon: How do you hold a team to four points in a quarter when there's a 24-second shot clock? The Bobcats did on Saturday in the second of their two wins over Regina. Big man Yuri Whyms ripped down 17 rebounds on Saturday. Brandon just has to be sure not to get too slack between now and the playoffs. They seem to be in a groove.
- Calgary: The Dinos dispatched Winnipeg and Manitoba by comfy margins and will again draw some second-place votes (one, at least) in the media poll.
- Acadia: Beat Dalhousie by 10 on Friday and now have a 10-day layoff until their next game. That's a lot of shooting drills.
- Toronto: The Varsity Blues have clear sailing through to home court for the OUA East semi-final on Feb. 23 after beating Ottawa 78-69 on Saturday, their second win over the Gee-Gees. Rob Paris put up 26 in the win, as the Blues were evidently in control most of the game, going up 12 at the half and then finding a second wind after the Gee-Gees went on a 16-0 run.
- Ottawa: The Gee-Gees might get bumped down to No. 7. In their (partial) defence, they were without small forward Sean Peter (hip) against the U of T. Lead guard Josh Gibson-Bascombe went down with an injury with about four minutes left when it was still a one-possession game. They will have a puncher's chance in the playoffs against Toronto, but winning on the road hasn't been their strongest suit in recent years.
- UBC: The T-Birds split at home, beating Saskatchewan after a loss to Alberta. Sophomore backup Balraj Bains helped provide a spark with 11 points, seven rebounds and a game-high four blocks in Saturday's 90-78 win over the Huskies.
- Cape Breton: Swept a two-game series vs. Memorial without a ton of trouble.
- Windsor: The best point guard in the OUA West, Ryan Steer, missed a triple-double by two assists in Saturday's 79-64 win over Brock that effectively locked up top spot in the division with two weeks to spare.
- Laval: Beat Bishop's on Saturday in what turned out to be their lone game of the weekend.
- Brock: Lost to Windsor for the second time and it was even more decisive than the first meeting. Mike Kemp hit five threes in a losing cause, but the rest of the Badgers were 0-for-23 from beyond the arc. There might have been some method to the media members' madness in not having the Badgers in their Top 10.
- Alberta: They should get much more Top 10 support after winning at UBC and Victoria on the strength of all-Canadian calibre efforts by Alex Steele. Beating the top two teams in the Pacific Division was huge for the U of A, since there's a wild-card spot available into the Canada West Final Four.
(Yes, the conference has a wild-card into its own championship, plus the opportunity for a potential wild-card into the nationals. Yet people complain about Carleton's automatic berth.
Oh, and to the Anonymous guy down below: Dissenting opinions to have a little more authenticity when you can actually spell a word that's already in the post... b-e-r-t-h... it's not hard.)
- Victoria: Tough, tough weekend, losing to Alberta and Saskatchewan at home. Both visitors got star efforts; Alberta from Steele and the U of S from Kyle Grant and Andrew Spagrud, who never left the court.
- St. Francis Xavier: Guard Dwayne Johnson put up 17 points in 25 minutes in Sunday's win over UPEI. It's a short turnaround before next Thursday's home game against Saint Mary's.
- Concordia: Beat McGill in their lone game of the weekend; bad weather led to a postponement of Friday's game vs. Laval.
(Again, this top 15 is based on the results from last week's media poll.)
