Linking the country ...

  • St. FX, which had great goaltending from Joseph Perricone (former 'tender with the WHL's Moose Jaw Warriors) in the first half, gets back into action with a two-game home series vs. Carleton. That's a potentially solid matchup between a traditionally strong AUS team and an emerging OUA team; Ravens coach Fred Parker also gets to return to his alma mater. (Halifax Chronicle-Herald)

  • No. 10 Lakehead hosts No. 7 Manitoba in a two-game series beginning today, with Matt Caria (92 points in major junior last season), Matt Dias (66-point in the OHL) and Ryan McDonald (63 in the WHL) all set to make their Thunderwolves debuts. (Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal)
  • Please let Mark Wacyk of know you're thinking of him. Mark posted on Christmas Day, "Best wishes for a healthy, happy and prosperous Holiday season to all. I had a coronary issue this past Monday, am home now and feeling much better. Best of luck to everyone for the remainder of the season."

    Mark moderates the comments, but if you leave one, he'll surely see it when he's up and doing.
  • Each of the hometown teams, Winnipeg and the Manitoba Bisons, are on the B side of the Wesmen Classic. Laval plays Lakehead in one semi-final tonight and Bishop's meets Valley City State (N.D.) from the NAIA in the other semi. (Winnipeg Free Press)
  • Point guard Liz Boag, who was an unanimous choice to Kingston's high school all-star team, is committed to the Queen's Golden Gaels. (Kingston Whig-Standard)

  1. Hey Neate, how about a shout out to our CIS basketball buddy Mark Wacyk?
    For those of you who do not know, Mark took ill Monday Dec 21 with what he described as a "coronary issue".
    Apparently he's going to be OK, but it would be nice to let him know he is in our thoughts.
    "Coronary issues" is a scary thought, especially since Mark had a new edition to his young family only last year.
    Take it easy Mark, and thanks for all you do for CIS hoops.

  2. Thanks for the reminder, I have added it to the post.

    I saw Mark's post and left a comment (he approves them so it's not yet visible). It might be good if people left a few, so that when Mark is up to it, he sees that he has a bunch of comments supporting him.
