- Ravens: For folks down in the Kingston area, it looks like Aaron Doornekamp, who provided Carleton's winning margin with his 19 points in the 75-56 win over Ottawa in the OUA East final, will be up for CIS player of the year. Of course, some of us half-ass predicted that in late November and got slapped down hard for it, but who's laughing now, at 3 a.m., to himself?
There's a full report on the game at cishoops.ca.
- Gee-Gees: The upshot is that Ottawa's headed to St. Catharines next Saturday to play Brock for a spot in nationals. (The Badgers lost to Western in the OUA West final.) The teams split a pair of games back in the first half of the season, with Ottawa losing by 11 on the road and winning by a point at home on a last-second shot by Donnie Gibson.
Ottawa seems to be that team you can't get rid of. Coach Dave DeAveiro only went six deep against Carleton and they still hung in for 2 1/2 quarters.
There's a full post of hoops-related ramblings over at The CIS Blog, including some wild stabs at how the seedings might look for the CIS Final 8, even though only four spots have been nailed down. Sorry for jumping the gun.
