Faced with the 20-0 Simon Fraser University Clan in the Canada West quarter-finals, calling the 9-11 Dinos women's basketball team under-dogs would be an under-statement. After squeaking into the final playoff spot by winning their final two games, our ladies were forced into a best-of-three series against the nation's top team in their Vancouver lair, Feb. 18-19.

To rise to the occasion, Dinos' Head Coach Shawnee Harle had devised a devious scheme to stall the high-scoring, highly offensive SFU.

The Dinos women's basketball team had a pair of matches Feb. 11-12 as important as the pair of humans on Noah's Ark. With a 7-11 record heading into the weekend series, our ladies needed two wins as badly as a high frosh searching for an uh... 7-11. Only by winning both games would the Dinos secure the eighth and final spot in the Canada West playoffs.

Just like the Jeffersons, the Dinos men's basketball team is "movin' on up." After defeating the Simon Fraser University Clan Fri., Jan. 28 and the Trinity Western University Spartans Sat., Jan. 29, the men are sittin' pretty (pronounced: pre-TAY) on top of Canada West's mountain division.

Things started off a leetle shaky for the Dinos according to Assistant Head Coach Wayne Thomas.

"We didn't play particularly well on Friday."

Well that was a waste. The 30 bones we spent on a three-nippled fortune teller and her crystalline-like ball told us what we already knew would happen. As predictable as not the weather, the Dinos dropped one to the top-ranked Simon Fraser University Clan and defeated the bottom dwelling Trinity Western University Spartans Jan. 28-29.

  Things to do in Lethbridge: splitPDF files may take a moment to load

Just when the Dinos men's basketball team thought they were sitting securely in first, the chair got knocked out from under them. The men traveled to the University of Lethbridge and were defeated by the Pronghorns 70-64 on Jan. 21, but won 87-66 on Jan. 22. Unfortunately for the team, they were only traveling with eight players. A family crisis summoned the brothers Brar (Rick and Sandy) to the west coast and newcomer Mike Asmus was too sick to travel.

A loss isn't always a loss. Sometimes something can be learned from a good loss and a team can gain from it. Jan. 7-8 the Dinos had two solid losses.

"We were playing with a depleted roster," Head Coach Shawnee Harle explained.

Three of the Dinos' key players were unable to play to their potential due to injury or recovery time.
