- Carleton Ravens — Beat Western (80-72 in a total hackfest) on Sunday. Cole Hobin and Elliot Thompson turned in big fourth quarters against a game Mustangs team; Willy Manigat (23 points, seven rebounds, four assists) and Kevin McCleery (21-7-3) were solid. It was an odd game where both point guards scored 20-plus, since Ryan Barbeau had 24 to keep Western in the hunt. Beat Windsor by 33 (95-62) on Friday with five players scoring in double digits.
- UBC Thunderbirds — Won two seven-point games over Saskatchewan (90-83) and Alberta (75-68). Nathan Yu (23 points in 24 minutes on 8-of-10) had the hot hand Saturday vs. Alberta, while the win over the Huskies reads like a great guard duel between Josh Whyte (24 points, six steals) and Showron Glover (34 points on 11-of-20).
- Calgary Dinos — Beat Fraser Valley (80-62 with Ross Bekkering putting in 25) and Thompson Rivers (95-68 with Robbie Sihota scoring 27).
- McMaster Marauders — Good bounce-back on Saturday night, beating Ryerson 72-60 on the strength of Keenan Jeppesen's effort (19 points, 10 rebounds and six assists) and special attention given to the Rams' Boris Bakovic, who ended up shooting 3-of-16 and scoring just 13 points, about half his average.
Friday, Mac contrived to lose by 10 to Toronto (77-67) due to poor shooting (effective 43%). Rookie Ryan Christie (three points in 27 minutes)
- Dalhousie Tigers — Finishing a two-game series vs. Memorial; won 83-62 in the first game.
- Windsor Lancers — Nice statement game on the road, 80-77 in overtime over Ottawa Saturday. Isaac Kuon was big late and John Woldu sank the winning basket.
- Saskatchewan Huskies — Lost at UBC (90-83) and UVic (82-54). It's a tough trip and the Vikes are very good in their own gym.
- Toronto Varsity Blues — Lost 68-67 at Lakehead on Saturday night, but the win at Mac, when they weren't travel-weary, is pretty impressive. Patrick Sewell (21 points on 7-of-12, six rebounds, five steals) was paramount in the game. He had 20 points vs. Lakehead, too.
The Thunderwolves had a 2-0 home weekend; sophomore point guard Greg Carter had 17 points (7-of-10 shooting) and eight assists, which is a prototype game for him.
- Cape Breton Capers — Idle this weekend.
- St. Francis Xavier X-Men — Idle this weekend.
