No Changes at the Top

OTTAWA (CIS)
– There are no changes at the top this week in Canadian Interuniversity Sport basketball and volleyball national rankings, with one change for the Trinity Western University men’s volleyball team as they drop one spot to No. 4 after sweeping their weekend series against the University  of Winnipeg. On the women’s side the Spartans volleyball team stays strong at No. 2 after their sweep of the Wesmen. In men’s basketball TWU remains at No. 7 after extending their winning streak to eight games after two road wins in Winnipeg against the Wesmen.

In women’s basketball, No. 1 Windsor easily improved to 7-1 in OUA action over the past weekend with road wins over Queen’s (1-7), 77-58, and Royal Military College (1-7), 95-41. The 2009-10 CIS finalist Lancers have completed the fall portion of the regular season and will resume conference play in January.

In men’s hoops, the top-ranked Carleton Ravens head into the December break with an unblemished 8-0 OUA record thanks to home wins over McMaster (3-5), 84-70, and Lakehead (6-2), 75-49.

In women’s volleyball, three-time reigning CIS champion UBC is 8-2 in Canada West action at the break thanks to a pair of home wins over Saskatchewan (1-7). The No. 1 Thunderbirds easily took the opener in straight sets on Friday but had to come back from a 2-1 deficit on Saturday to prevail in five.

In men’s volleyball, the No. 1 Laval Rouge et Or (10-0) had already wrapped up the fall portion of their RSEQ schedule a week ago.
