CIS Top 10 Tuesday

OTTAWA (CIS) – The reigning national champion UBC Thunderbirds have taken over the #1 position in the women's volleyball poll, while also keeping #1 in women's swimming. Alberta tops the polls in men's hockey and men's volleyball.

In wrestling, Brock Badgers and Concordia Stingers top the first CIS women’s and men’s wrestling rankings of the 2012-13 season.

In other CIS sports, the only change at the top this week sees the UBC Thunderbirds climb back to No. 1 in women’s volleyball. Meanwhile, Windsor (women’s basketball), Carleton (men’s basketball), McGill (women’s hockey), Alberta (men’s hockey & men’s volleyball), UBC (women’s swimming) and Toronto (men’s swimming) all hold on to the pole position in their respective disciplines.

This marks the end of CIS national rankings for the fall semester. Top Ten Tuesday will resume on January 8, 2013.

Women’s volleyball
In women’s volleyball, reigning five-time CIS champ UBC returns to the No. 1 spot after spending the last six weeks in second place behind archrival Trinity Western. While the T-Birds (11-1) closed out the fall semester last weekend with a pair of straight-set wins over Manitoba, the Spartans (10-2), who drop to No. 2 in the new poll, were upset 3-1 by UBC Okanagan on Saturday before rebounding with a 3-1 victory of their own in Sunday’s rematch.

Men’s volleyball
In men’s volleyball, three squads end the first portion of the regular schedule with unblemished records, including Alberta (12-0), No. 2 McMaster (9-0) and No. 4 Laval (10-0). The top-ranked Golden Bears wrapped up the fall semester in convincing fashion last weekend with a 3-1, 3-0 sweep against Canada West newcomer Mount Royal.

Women’s basketball
In women’s basketball, reigning two-time Bronze Baby Trophy champion Windsor heads into the mid-season break with a perfect 7-0 record but has to share the OUA West lead with the No. 10 Brock Badgers (7-0), who are also unbeaten in league play. The top-ranked Lancers defeated Queen’s 72-64 last Friday in Kingston in their lone outing of the past weekend.

Men’s basketball
In men’s hoops, defending two-time W.P. McGee Trophy champ Carleton closed out the fall semester last weekend with convincing road wins over Waterloo, 73-43, and Laurier, 100-72. The Ravens (7-1) have won seven straight since a season-opening loss at No. 8 Windsor (5-2).

Women’s hockey
In women’s hockey, top-ranked McGill (11-0) is the only unbeaten squad in the nation at the end of the fall semester thanks to a 4-0 shutout against Carleton, last Friday. The Martlets also defeated visiting NCAA rival Brown 3-1 in non-conference action, on Saturday.

The reigning CIS titlist Calgary Dinos are ranked No. 2 nationally and currently sit atop the Canada West standings with a 13-2-1 record.

Men’s hockey
In men’s hockey, top-seeded Alberta wrapped up the fall portion of the schedule with a weekend split against No. 9 Manitoba (9-4-3) in Winnipeg, including a 3-2 shootout win in Friday’s series opener and a 4-2 loss on Saturday. The Golden Bears (14-4-0) hold a slim two-point advantage over No. 3 Saskatchewan (13-3-0) in the Canada West standings at the break but the Huskies have two games in hand.
