Sports in brief: November 27
Women’s basketball ranked No. 10 in Canada
Despite missing two of their major starters, the Hawks have gotten off to their best start since 2003-04. Over the weekend, Laurier defeated the Carleton Ravens before upsetting the No. 7 — now No. 8 — nationally ranked Ottawa Gee-Gees on Saturday. Laurier has a 7-1 record after crossover play to the OUA East division and are ranked in the national rankings for the first time since Nov. 13, 2012, when the Hawks were ranked No. 9, after seven games in non-conference play and a 1-0 record in conference play.
Max Allin one point away from 1,500
In his five-year career, Max Allin has scored 1,499 points. He will be looking for his 1,500 point this week as the men’s basketball team plays against the Waterloo Warriors on Friday and the Guelph Gryphons on Saturday. Allin currently sits second in most career points at Laurier behind Kale Harrison.
Hawks split weekend
Men’s hockey travelled to Montré al on Friday, defeating the McGill Redmen 4-3. However, the three-game winning streak would come to an end Saturday when the Hawks dropped a 4-2 decision to the Ottawa Gee-Gees. Laurier now has a 4-6-1 record going into their final weekend of 2013 before the break.
