Linking the country ...

  • It's a distinct possibility this week's UBC-Simon Fraser games will be their last for some time; arranging a game will be tough once the Clan are in the NCAA. (Little Man on Campus)

  • No. 3-ranked St. FX "were as good as they've been all year," writes Monty Mosher of the X-Men's 36-point win at Saint Mary's. St. FX coach Steve Konchalski is only three wins from a nice, round 750 for his career.

    Between Christian Upshaw and the two Joshes, Whyte of UBC and Gibson-Bascombe of Ottawa, this a good year for top teams helmed by a lead guard. (Halifax Chronicle-Herald)
  • Mike Danton showed some good hands on his first goal for Saint Mary's, picking a centring pass out of the air to redirect into the net. The announced crowd of 3,723 was 3,000 more than the hockey Huskies usually attract. (Halifax Chronicle-Herald, Huskies Football)

  • St. Thomas, one point out of the final AUS playoff spot, has some fight in them, as evidenced by a practice skirmish between forwards Jason Cassidy and Kenton Dulle. Now it just needs to be redirected toward Dalhousie on Friday, and tongue firmly planted in cheek here, Cassidy has a column topic for his next Hockey News article. (Fredericton Daily Gleaner)

  • Nipissing forward Sam Hopewell is from Almonte, birthplace of James Naismith, so yes, he has dabbled in basketball. The Lakers, meantime, have two more big games this weekend. (North Bay Nugget)

  • Great job by coach Adam Shell's pesky RMC Paladins to dump Queen's 4-1 on Wednesday. Carleton and Toronto should have the thank-you notes out in the mail, since it helps them in the OUA East race.

    Queen's would have a better shot at third in the OUA East if it wasn't for that unfortunate habit of losing by three goals to RMC. (EMC Frontenac)
  • The United Football League is interested in evaluating Queen's rush end Shomari Williams, who is the No. 4-rated prospect for the CFL Canadian college draft. (Kingston Whig-Standard)
