The old adage "you win some, you lose some" vindicated itself yet again in the Dinos men's basketball team's play Nov. 18-19. Travelling to the University of Manitoba and playing the Bisons before a crowd of about 100 (hey, it is Manitoba), the Dinos proved they are worth every penny by starting the weekend off with another toe-curling match on Friday.

The Dinos men's basketball team proved they will not soon be forgotten as they gave the University of Alberta Golden Bears a tense fight Remembrance Day weekend. Really, it was the Dinos who were golden as they came together to press the Bears in every area of the court. In the end, all that separated the teams were a couple of free throws.

Our Dinos got a taste of March Madness Nov. 5-6, traveling down to the land of 'sweets' and hurricanes commonly known as the United States.

The men started out in Fort Worth on Saturday, taking on the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs--a first-division NCAA team. After bouncing back from a 46-28 deficit at the half to 53-50, the Dinos were ultimately tripped up by the Frogs for a final score of 87-66.

The Dinos women's basketball team's games against the University of Saskatchewan Huskie ladies Nov. 4-5 played out like a 17-year-old's first night at the bar--it seemed fun at first, but the results were nauseating.

"I'm not happy," said Head Coach Shawnee Harle, "but we played better than the previous weekend. I'll be happier if we continue to move in the right direction."

The Dinos women's basketball team had a frightfully ghoulish pair of eve's against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds Oct. 28-29. Like introverted elementary school girls, the Dinos stood behind mommy's leg at the haunted house when they should have been shooting baskets.

"I felt like Friday's game was a nasty Halloween joke," Head Coach Shawnee Harle lamented.

It was raining on the East coast Oct. 14-16. But this time, it rained tears as the Dinos men's basketball team shipped off to show Nova Scotia that Western Canada will not be alienated.

What started off as a weekend to get away and strengthen the team, twisted like the plot of Hoosiers--minus a disgruntled Gene Hackman.
