  • It's worth reiterating Canada West has re-aligned into a six-team West division (all the B.C. schools) and an eight-team East division (everone else) for basketball. Four East teams, three West teams and one wild card make the playoffs. For a refresher, see Tim Switzer's post from a few months back.

  1. It's a huge relief that Lakehead has learned from thier mistakes last year as far as ticketing of the University Cup. It was a huge disappointment to hear all the hype about CIS hockey in T Bay (big crowds, great fans), and then to go to Nationals and see so many empty seats for CIS hockey's biggest event. Good on them for making changes. The lack of a day pass last year was the biggest mistake and to see that rectified is good news.
