NONE!
Nah mate - she is on the score table... her last feat on the basketball court was leading the whirlies under 18 local comp in 1988

Thanks for clearing that one up djrod.

No more undefeated teams in the Canadian college basketball scene: McMaster's women's basketball team received their first loss of the 2006-07 season thanks to a tough Waterloo Warriors team last Wednesday 61-55. Waterloo has been flying lately after an upset win over Brock the week before. The Marauders can blame Kim Lee (17 points) and Kate Poulin (11 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists) from Waterloo for now being 17-1. Maruader Lindsay DeGroot had 24 points and 11 boards and Deanna Hollinger scored 11 points in a losing effort-- www.athrec.mcmaster.ca/athletics/teams/ ... 06/jan3107 . But McMaster rebounded and defeated the Western Ontario Mustangs the following night to secure the OUA West and home court advantage through the OUA Playoffs-- www.athrec.mcmaster.ca/athletics/teams/ ... 006/feb307
McMaster is signed to Nike BTW.

Considering that several of the Laurentian Lady Vees were stricken with the flu and lost the tempo of the game at the beginning, their squeak-by 57-56 win over the Queen's Golden Gaels was an incredible accomplishment and a sign of perserverance. Cassandra Carpenter and Lisa Roberts led the way for Laurentian with Claire Meadows and Sarah Barnes doing the same for Queen's. Queen's lost again after that. This time to York University.
www.goldengaels.com/interuniversity/basketballw.html

In a battle of the top Atlantic teams, the Acadia Axewomen came back huge in the third quarter (and even led at the beginning of the fourth) with the spirited play of Jennifer Bishop and Caitlin Crosby but still fell short against #8 Cape Breton 52-58. Debralee Ruiz led the young Capers with 17 points as her teammates Natasha Eadie and Katherine Kanaski also scored in double figures. They also swept UPEI Panthers in a pair of games over the weekend.
http://faculty.cbu.ca/athletics/asp/wbb ... sp?id=home

UCFV Cascades women qualified for the postseason in their debut season in the CIS with a victory over Thompson Rivers. The Cascades needed a win for themselves and a Trinity Western loss on Saturday to do that. Thompson Rivers Wolf Pack led for most of the game until the Cascades came from behind when Michelle Buchler added five straight baskets with a tiny lead. But the Wolf Pack's Kelly O'Grady scored both free throws resulting from a foul. The Cascades' playoff hopes were assured near the end of the game with Buchler drawing a foul and scoring a subsequent free throw from the line. Boston Pizza UCFV Women's Athlete of the Week Olivia Hunt led the Cascades with 13 points with Buchler and Megan McAllister each scored 12. The playoff-bound Cascades now head south along the British Columbia coast and Vancouver Island to face UBC and Victoria on their weekend road trip to close out their inaugural CIS regular season. Thompson Rivers were led by Kelley O'Grady with a game-high 19 points followed by Kali Ellis' 16 and Sarah Cameron's 13.

Thanks to McMaster suffering its first loss, the Simon Fraser Clanswomen perched atop the CIS women's basketball rankings this past week leapfrogging even over UBC.

Well, it's now playoff time north of the border. Hopefully next week I'll catch up into the college basketball scene. Conferences are undergoing semis on the (final) road to Halifax right now. It's an exciting time and I'll very much of it and more from what I missed in the past two weeks.

The following is one of three parts pertaining to Canadian college basketball as the scene is in the postseason--the other will arrive tomorrow, which I will focus on here. Everything will be caught up hopefully by then.

Conference allotments were made for 2007 CIS championship for Halifax's Milk Energy Final 8 hosted by the Atlantic University Sports Conference for March 16-18:
Atlantic University--2
Quebec Student Sports Federation--1
Ontario University Athletics--2
Canada West--2
Wildcard--1

Wednesday, February 28
McMaster @ Brock OUA West semifinal
Guelph @ Windsor OUA West semifinal

Thursday, March 1
UQAM @ Concordia QSSF semifinal
McGill @ Laval QSSF semifinal

Friday, March 2
Victoria @ Brandon Canada West semifinal
Saskatchewan vs UBC Can West semifinal
(Brandon hosts the CanWest Final Four)

They perserved and the Lady Thunderbirds were finally rewarded with the Number 1 spot in women's basketball. Both UBC and its Vancouver rival Simon Fraser share a 21-1 record. Both UBC got more points in votes than the Clanswomen:
1. University of British Columbia
2. Simon Fraser
3. McMaster
4. Alberta
5. Sasakatchewan
6.York
7. Cape Breton
8. Manitoba
9. Laval
10. Calgary

Men's rankings
1. Brandon
2. Concordia
3. Victoria
4. Carleton
5. UBC
6. Ottawa
7. Cape Breton
8. St. Francis Xavier
9. Acadia
10. Windsor

Once again, the British Columbia Thunderbirds and the Victoria Vikings faced each other for the CanWest Pacific Division men's title for the third straight time with UBC undefeated at home this season. Thunderbirds won an expected hotly-contested match 88-81 on Senior Night to finish at home for the regular season 18-0.

Over in the Prairie provinces, #1 Brandon Bobcats, winners of 13 straight, disposed of the Regina Cougars in the Great Plains Final with a tribute to hono(u)r Head Coach Emertus Jerry Hemmings.

Lakehead Thunderwolves can't get a second win for the season thanks to an overtime loss to the Windsor Lancers 88-81. Officially they're the worst team in CIS men's basketball. chttp://athletics.lakeheadu.ca/?page=ar ... ew&id=2208

Over in the QSSF women's game, the battle was between McGill and Bishop's at Bishop's for QSSF second place. It was an easy time as the Gaithers beat the Marlets by 20 points and outscoring the Marlets in every four quarters.

Some random stuff on the men's scene follows McMaster defeating Western Ontario, Windsor beating lowly Lakehead, Laurentian loses to the York Lions, Saskatchewan edging Calgary, UBC over Trinity Western, and McGill upends Bishop's from a 22-point defecit.
www.freeweb.com/frozenhoops13/cismen.htm

Over in Toronto, the two teams based there from the OUA East Conference semis, Toronto Blues and York Lions women squared off with emerging as the victor. Before then, the Varsity Blues blasted the Ottawa Gee Gees 73-32 at home in the OUA quaterfinals. This follows for the Blues wins over Carleton, a loss to York, and snapping Lauretian's six-game win streak. Jessica Hiew, Toronto's #10, plays guard is from Canberra averages just over 8 points per game.
http://varsityblues.ca/sports/wbasketball/

Their male counterparts also clinched their OUA East playoff ticket as they finished third in the OUA East division. They downed York and Ottawa in convincing fashion en route as part of a hot streak to get there. After beating Laurentian in the OUA quarters, they heartbreakingly fell to the Gee Gees 69-68 to finish their season.
http://varsityblues.ca/sports/mbasketball

Been an up and down season for St. Mary's men, but they beat the Cape Breton Capers to finish the regular season. But the women couldn't do the same against the Cape women.

The delayed Part 3--there will be a part 4

Naturally, the Canadian college game ends much earlier with far less teams than its bigger, more financially lucrative, and more well-known counterpart south of the border. But that does not mean in any way that it isn't important to be covered.

York University Lions score the big upset when they again faced the McMaster Marauders, who were #1 for most of the season, and again defeat them for the OUA title in Hamilton. But both teams have already qualified for the CIS Women's National Championship this weekend at Memorial University. It was the second consecutive the two faced each other the OUA championship, and this is York's first women's OUA title in 28 years. Sarah Brodie had 12 points and 13 boards for York.
www.universitysport.ca/e/w_basketball/s ... fm?id=8507
www.universitysport.ca/e/w_basketball/s ... fm?id=8602

Guelph ends Western Mustangs' strong Cinderella season thanks to the Mustangs' poor shooting (8 of 41) in the OUA semifinals. With a rookie coach guiding a team comprised of first and second year players, it signals a bright future ahead for them.
www.universitysport.ca/e/w_basketball/s ... fm?id=8427

Laurentian Lady Vees loses to Queen's Golden Gaels in OUA East semis
www.universitysport.ca/e/w_basketball/s ... fm?id=8422

Before losing their OUA title, McMaster eliminates Brock form the postseason.
www.universitysport.ca/e/w_basketball/s ... fm?id=8425

The Alberta Pandas end the brilliant college careers of reigning CIS Player of the Year Sarah Crooks, who left in the final minutes to a standing ovation, and Ashley Dutchak en route to the CanWest Final Four 89-71 at home by shutting them down.

In the CanWest Final Four, UBC proved why they are the best in Canada with an emphatic win over Alberta and previously secured a spot in the CIS Championships with a win over the Winnipeg Weswomen in their Vancouver home. This is the first CanWest title for the Thunderbirds since 1994.
www.universitysport.ca/e/w_basketball/s ... fm?id=8562
www.universitysport.ca/e/w_basketball/s ... fm?id=8591

Alberta beats Simon Fraser to face UBC in the other CanWest Final Four semi. Later Simon Fraser Clan beats Winnipeg to bronze--and more importantly--the third and last spot out of CanWest in the CIS Championship.
www.ubears.alberta.ca/Basketball/Women/?pt=news&ID=2441

Over in Quebec, Bishop's Gaithers knock off McGill 62-48 with the shooting touches of Quebec League MVP Laure Pitfield and Anouck Boulanger. They faced #10-ranked Laval Rouge et Or and its stars Myriam Lemarre, Marie-Michelle Genois, and Karine Bibeau. Those three caused Laval to succeeded over UQAM in the Quebec League semifinal 71-56 as Irline Noel and Claudia Thoret were the only players from that team to score in double figures for the Citidens. Laval is undefeated--4-0--against Bishop's this season and it will be the sixth face-off in the Quebec Conference Final in eight years. Winner gets the sole bid for Quebec. UPDATE: Laval plays for the CIS championship as QSSF champs defeating once again Bishop's. The Gaiters collapsed in the second half as the home team rallied and never looked back with turnovers playing a role in the Gaiters' misfortunes. Pitfeld ran into foul trouble and eventually disqualified. Despite an ankle injury, Boulanger played with grit in her final college game with 10 points.

In the Atlantic Conference, it was down to the Memorial Seahawks, Cape Breton Capers, Dalhousie Tigers, and the UNB. Memorial beat Cape Breton 78-61 with Meagan Seaward , Kelly Himmelman, and Erin Mullaley racking up 18, 14, and 13 points, respectively. Cecilia Romero, Debralee Ruiz, and Natasha Eadie led for the Capers with 16, 13, and 12 respectively in a losing effort. Dalhousie knocked off UNB in the other semifinal. Then the Seahawks claim the top CIS spot for the Atlantic with a convincing win in the AUS championship 68-43 at St. Mary's University. Dalhousie is the other AUS rep.

You can also check up on www.usbasket.com/CAN/CAN.asp?women=1

So all of this shapes up for a very interesting CIS championship this weekend in St. John's, Newfoundland, home of Memorial University. Seedings are:
1. University of British Columbia (CanWest winner)
2. Alberta Pandas (CanWest runnerup)
3. York Lions (OUA champs)
4. McMaster Marauders (OUA finalist)

The CIS women's championship game will be televised live in Canada on The Score TV (3pm US CST) network.

Over in the men briefly in their conference championships--Road to Halifax (final time) and the Final 8.

In Quebec:
Concordia Stingers takes second place in the Quebec Student Sports Federation by defeating Laval 78-65 and UQAM 102-63.

Concordia defeated UQAM in the QSSF semis and then as a reward took the number 1 CIS spot for the first time in a decade in the final CIS regular season rankings. The Stingers are two days away from battling a highly-anticipated matchup against that same Laval squad. Laval Rouge et Or conquered the McGill Redmen 83-69.

In the CanWest Final Four, UBC knock off #1 Brandon, the hosts, to win the conference title. Both will go on the road to Halifax as the two CanWest representatives. Saskatchewan Huskies take the bronze over Victoria.

In the OUA East, Carleton gets some revenge on the Ottawa Gee Gees squeaking past them by two to win a trip to Halifax. Earlier the Ravens The OUA West champs is the Windsor Lancers who eliminated the McMaster Mauraders and previously the Guelph Gryphons in the semis. McMaster outdueled the Brock Badgers. Guelph had already eliminated the Western Ontario Mustangs.

The Atlantic Conference is still determining its men's champion.

So now we got half the field set: Brandon, Carleton, University of British Columbia, and Windsor. Two Atlantic teams (both finalists), the Laval/Concordia winner, and a wildcard will all be decided by the end of the weekend to complete the final Road to Halifax. More details to come soon.

All of them will vie for the W.P. McGee Trophy with Carleton attempt to maintain their reign for the W.P. McGee that they are currently second to those great Victoria teams from 1979-85. The Milk Energy Final 8 starts Friday. www.universitysport.ca/e/m_basketball/s ... fm?id=8651
www.cisport.ca/e/championships/m_basketball/2007
Lots more info can be found here: www.final8.ca

The Canadian women's college basketball has their champion crowned, but I would like to reveal that after next week to coincide with the Men's Final 8 along with other stuff that I have missed over this season.

All of the games in the 2007 Final 8 at the Halifax Metro Centre will be made available online live through online video-casting from Frederickton's News-Cast.com except for two that are televised by Canada's TSN. Requires Real Player. Cost is C$7.95 per game. Frederickton is in New Brunswick.

The Canadian March Madness is now over--two weeks before the US version ends theirs.

For the final time, the Milk Energy Final 8 CIS Men's Championship was played in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the Halifax Metro Centre this past weekend after 23 years there, and that concludes the 2006-07 Canadian college basketball season. And man, what a way to end the Halifax era for the Final 8. In some ways, it seems rather apt in terms of its transition to Ottawa for the next few years at least.

Well, well, just when you think you were about to count them out slightly coming into the postseason, they did it. The Carleton Ravens successfully defended once again the W.P. McGee Trophy for the fifth straight time in a nail-bitter against the Brandon Bobcats, a team that succeeded them in the CIS top spot after the Ravens lost two games in a row. The score, 52-49, became the lowest scoring championship game ever, surpassing the 1963 record set by Assumption and Acadia. Only the Victoria Vikings teams from 1979-85 won more. Whe n the postseason arrived, the Ravens summoned all of their postseason strength and experience to carry them through. Plus they have won 17 straight national championship games in Halifax. Now the debate over who is better Canadian college team heats up even more. Osvaldo Jeantry, a two-time CIS Player of the Year and fifth year senior from Glouchester, Ontario, goes out as a champion for all five years with a "mediocre" 15 points. Jeantry now joins Victoria's Eli Pasquale, David Sheehan, and Ryan Burles with five CIS rings. Shawn McLeary ends his college career on a high note too. Aaron Doorenkamp was sizzling with a game-high 20 points to make up his absence last year with a broken ankle as he earns Tournament MVP hono(u)rs. Brandon played intense defense all game long, but just came up short. Can Carleton eventually go for seven like Victoria? Let's not look into that for now. The Carleton Drive For Five is complete. Seems apt that the Ravens win as they now own the Final 8 rights starting next year in Ottawa at the ScotiaBank Centre.

In the consolation game, #1 seed Concordia Stingers edged #2 UBC Thunderbirds 95-92. Benjamin Sormonte applied 23 points and Patrick Perrotte 20 points and 13 rebounds in their final college outing. Montreal brothers Damian and Dwayne Buckley added 19 and 12 points respectively.

In the women's CIS championship game held in Newfoundland the weekend before last, it's wasn't the favo(u)red schools like UBC that won, it was the fifth-seeded Simon Fraser Clan walking away with the title with a defeat to the Alberta Pandas in a close one 72-69 to claim their third bronze baby in six years. 19-year old Laurelle Wiegl proved herself to be the best rookie women's college basketball player in all of Canada, and she confirmed that in this win for her team. The Stony Plain, Alberta native was a machine with a game-high 30 points and 12 rebounds becoming Tournament MVP. With that the Bronze Baby stays in the hands of the CanadaWest Conference for the 16th straight year. Wiegl tallyed 59 points in 72 minutes over the course of thee games in Newfoundland's Memorial University.

Congrats to the Carleton Ravens and the Simon Fraser Clan on their successful championship seasons!

As a reward for winning the CIS women's title Simon Fraser gets for a top Canadian recruit Carly Graham from Surrey, B.C., arguably Canada's best 3-point shooter in British Columbia and comes from a basketball family with a coach for a dad (Stu Atkinson) and a former player (Janet Atkinson) imparting that work ethic and immense knowledge. Richmond's Katie Miyazaki also joins Graham as members of the SFU 2007 recruiting class boosting 11 letterwomen already from the 2007 champs.

Canada Basketball's National Elite Development Academy 6'2" standout Zara Huntley joins the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, SFU's cross-Vancouver rivals. She gives them a replenished inside/outside presence that is now lost thanks to the graduations of Kelsey Blair, Kim Howe, and Julie Little. Huntley, who was at the time the only player on the 12-person roster to join a university, has an incredible and highly regarded leaping ability and can grab the rim to go with that versatility. The Halifax native attended Queen Elizabeth High, whom she led to the Nova Scotia provincial championship game.

Laurentian Voyageurs welcome home former Canadian national basketball team star Shawn Swords as their new men's basketball coach. He played for his alma mater from 1992 to 1997.

The Concordia Stingers have won the Friendship Games held in Tel Aviv in competition featuring over 30 college teams from around the world.

Now Canada, for all practical means and purposes, has officially left the US camp and joins the FIBA rules, which was part of its Be One campaign with the Manitoban high school and minor basketball scenes electing to join the FIBA rules route.

The rest of the CCAA National Basketball Championship results:
4th Place--Mount Royal College Cougars (Calgary, AB)
5th Place--Mount St. Vincent University Mystics (Halifax, NS)
6th Place--Fanshawe College Falcons (London, ON)
7th Place--Okanagan Lakers (Kamloops, BC)
8th Place--Nova Scotia Agricultural College Rams (Truro, NS)

The University of Saskatchewan last hosted the CIS women's Nationals game in 1982 (Victoria Vikings won that year), and that was the only time for the Huskies...until now. It was recently announced USask will host next year's women's CIS Nationals, and the Sask people are no doubt excited about this.

This young woman is not far removed from her college playing days, but the Waterloo Warriors hires Christin Dickinson to be their new women's basketball co-head coach with Mano Wetsa. Dickinson previously was an assistant at her alma mater McMaster, where she enjoyed a brilliant career at the Hamilton school from 2001-2005. Maybe Dickinson can rub some of that brilliance on the Warriors.

Durban,
do you know if John Campbell applied for the Laurentian job?
Thanks for the updates they are great.
As for the "Canada First" that was a big push from Fred Nykamp, the ex Canada Basketball director. He didn't want any athletes heading south. I tend to disagree with this train of thought, as I believe the competition is better down south and the athletes will be challenged a lot more against the faster and fitter NCAA athletes.

Canada finished seventh in the men's Pan American Games basketball tournament in Rio De Janerio with a team filled with Canadian college basketball all-stars like Carleton's Osvaldo Jeanty. Their only win came against the US Virgin Islands 69-60 for seventh place.

UPDATE 8-7-2007: The only other Canucks on the Pan Am Games roster who played in a Canadian university are Jeanty's Carleton ex-teammates F Aaron Doorenkamp and G Ryan Bell. Other players were from US colleges (Syracuse's Andy Rautins, UNC-Wilmington's Vladimir Kuljanin, Kentucky's Sheray Thomas, and Santa Clara's Sean Denison) with an ABA player (Quebec City Kebekwa's Paul Lemard) and several overseas pros.
