Toronto needs to get behind CIS Final 8 for tournament to reach next level

Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) basketball isn’t the NCAA. The CIS Final 8 is not March Madness. It also doesn’t have to be. The tournament may never reach the lofty heights in revenue and viewership of its U.S. counterpart. But the Final 8 took a big step this year, to get where it can. It took place in Toronto, something that […]

To the crowd’s disappointment, the guys match […]

Green’s hoop dreams back on track at Ryerson

Canadian Andrew Wiggins is a rising star in basketball. He’s currently a freshman with the Kansas Jayhawks and could become the second straight Canadian taken first overall in the next NBA draft.

Learning valuable lessons on the road

It was a tale of two trips for the Ryerson Rams sports program. The men’s hockey team excursion to Princeton didn’t end well on the ice, but was even worse off it. The team was suspended seven days for drinking in their hotel rooms. The men’s basketball team also lost on the court, but benefited tremendously as a team when […]
