  Bekkering's basketball jones surfaces yet againPDF files may take a moment to load

In many team sports, playoffs are the real start to the season and the regular season is just a means of getting there.

We've all heard that tired cliche before. But the sentiment didn't seem to be lost on the University of Calgary men's basketball team when they squared up against the Trinity Western University Spartans at the Jack Simpson Gym on Jan. 24.

Although the Dinos were downed 83-79, the game represents the tenacity and drive of both teams as the "real" season approaches.

It was scrappy, it was intense, a nose was broken.

Usually those are terms used to describe a late-round playoff game, but the 100-90 win the University of Calgary Dinos women's basketball team tallied over the University of Windsor Lancers last Sunday was a meaningless, non-conference pre-season match up.

The win gave Calgary a 3-0 sweep of their own UC Invitational tournament.
