The women’s basketball team had a big weekend, starting on Friday night by defeating the eighth place Douglas College Royals in a decisive 75-36 victory. The win came after a lot of hard work throughout the game, and some outstanding play by second-year guard, Jessica Daigneault, and fifth-year forward Jenna Ralston. Jenna currently leads the league in points with 233 overall, averaging 19.43 per game. First-year forward Hayley Boulier went down with an ankle injury with 2 minutes to go in the fourth quarter, but was able to shake it off and make it to the bench. On Saturday night the women picked up another win, this time over the last place CBC Bearcats by a huge differential of 95-28.

The men’s basketball team also had a successful weekend, starting on Friday night when they picked up two points against The Royals, pushing them out of a contending spot for the playoffs with a 79-73 win. This game was set to have a great point guard match up with The Blues second-year guard, James Lum, going up against The Royals, Harmeet Mahal. Lum played a concise and calculated game, reading gaps, finding his teammates, and putting up some good numbers. Fourth-year forward, Micheal Zayonc, played great, getting nearly every rebound that came his way. Second year guard Cam Yates played with a level of calm that seemed to slow down the game around him, and he sank some crucial three pointers, as well as several well-earned assists. On Saturday night the blues picked up their other two points when they put away the last place Bearcats by a score of 82-72.
