Top 10 Update: Women’s Volleyball Climbs, Men’s Basketball still no. 2

Tuesday January 28, 2014

Four University of Ottawa varsity teams are in the CIS Top 10 rankings this week. The Gee-Gees men’s basketball team continues to lead the way by retaining their 2nd place rank for an eighth straight week.

Men’s basketball was able to convincingly beat both York and Queen’s this past weekend following their loss to first-ranked Carleton on Tuesday in the MBNA Capital Hoops Classic. The squad continues to put up big points, ranking second in the country with an average of 93.9 points per game.

The varsity women’s basketball team dropped out of the top ten this week following a loss to Queen’s on Saturday. Both hoops teams are on the road the next two weekends before coming home for the final games of the regular season on February 14 and 15.

Women’s volleyball had a bye week but the team was able to move up two spots to no. 7 in the national rankings due to losses elsewhere in the Top Ten. With four games left in the OUA regular season the team is gearing up for playoffs. The team plays their next three games at Montpetit Hall on January 29 against Lakehead, February 1 against Ryerson and February 2 against Toronto.

The other two teams that were able to make the top ten this week were Women’s Swimming who maintained their tenth rank in the nation and Men’s Track and Field who dropped one spot to no. 10 in the country.
