The men's b-ballasaurs bounced back from back-to-back losses in B.C. the previous weekend with consecutive wins on home court Nov. 10-11. The Simon Fraser University Clan came to town looking for a win Fri., Nov. 10, and were sent home with an 84-66 loss. Saturday the Trinity Western University Spartans were hoping the Dinos would forget what had gone right the night before, and that they'd be able to succeed where the Clan had failed.
