- Lakehead's win over McMaster last night was their third win over a ranked opponent this season. At 8-1 in the OUA, it's time that everyone takes notice of this team and stops making excuses why they are the third nationally ranked team in their division instead of the first.
- A very impressive win on the men’s side for Windsor over Western on Wednesday night, which by all accounts wasn’t nearly as close at the end as the score would have suggested.
- Guelph's struggles continue as they were defeated at home by 25 points on Wednesday night vs. Laurier. The news is even worse for the Gryphons as Jay Mott will be out of the lineup indefinitely with a concussion. The Gryphons simply can not afford to lose their captain and leading scorer and expect to make the playoffs. Add in some injuries to rookies Drew Morris and Adrian Achonwa, and the Gryphons bench is looking pretty thin.
- I was very impressed by the play of Laurier's fourth-year forward Megan Grant, who had a tough defensive assignment on Guelph’s double-double threat Jasmine Douglas. Not only did Grant hold Douglas in check for the game, including only 6 points and 1 rebound in the first half, but she also chipped in with 14 points and 7 rebounds of her own.
- Condolences to Waterloo coach Tom Kieswetter, whose father Ernie passed away earlier this week. Ernie Kieswetter was a fixture at Warriors games for the past two decades, sitting with his wife June at the end of the Waterloo bench. A proud supporter of Warrior basketball who watched his son play and coach for the Warriors, and three grandchildren also wear the Black and Gold, he will be missed.
