It's only semi-CIS, but attention should be paid to Canada's women's basketball team beating Cuba 59-49 in overtime on Sunday to reach the 2010 FIBA World Championship For Women.
Teresa Gabriele, who played for Simon Fraser before it joined CIS basketball (and before it left, you might say), had the double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds in 42 minutes, all team highs. Kaela Chapdelaine, the older sister of Queen's quarterback Justin Chapdelaine (and daughter of former Laval football coach Jacques Chapdelaine) also hit a back-breaking three-pointer in the overtime.
Anyway, it's great for Canada Basketball both senior teams will play in the worlds in 2010. Oh, and TSN.ca commenters who say stuff such as "Just wait til Canada has to play the USA" and refer to the players as "chicks" can go jump in a lake.
