#3 Regina vs. #8 Alberta:

The previously #2-ranked Cougars fell to third place in the CIS coaches' rankings after a split weekend against #8 Alberta. On Friday, despite a 62-62 tie early in the fourth quarter, the Cougars managed a slight lead after a Joanna Zalesiak layup and held on for the 77-74 win. For the Cougars, Carly Graham and Anne Mercer led with 15 points apiece, while Gabrielle Gheyssen and Danielle Schmidt added 13 and 11, respectively (box score here). On Saturday, a 20-point performance from Panda Anneka Bakker was enough to trump Joanna Zalesiak's 25 points and give the Pandas the upset 81-58 victory. Regina was down by a mere 5 points entering the 4th quarter, but didn't manage a score for the final seven minutes. Alberta, on the other hand, scored the final 18 points of the game to earn the W in commanding fashion. Box score for Saturday available here.

None of the other top 10 teams played this past weekend. Non-top 10 results and boxscores are available from the CIS website.
