Ryerson destroyed Sask Saturday afternoon 116-43 at home.
Makes me wonder if the Rams are that awesome or if the Huskies were that awful.
A 73 point margin game might be a team record for both schools.

See http://usportshoops.ca/history/bestworst.php?Gender=MBB&Since=1962-63

For Ryerson the 116 points scored is the most ever against a U Sports team. But they did have a 74 point win over RMC back in 2012.

For Saskatchewan the 73 point loss is the largest ever.

There was no box score for the Rams/Huskies game when I last looked but, using the box score from the Saskatchewan's loss to Toronto two days previously, it would appear that the Huskies were playing without three guys who would normally start. That said, looking at Saskatchewan's roster this year, good luck on the glass against the better teams.

Considering some of those teams Sask had during the Steve Roth era that is astonishing.

I don't think it was either awesome or awful. Okay, maybe Saskatchewan was awful, but they had good reason to be. Ryerson has not gelled as a team with players still jostling for their niche/role on the team. Ngom doesn't know what he can do or not do or where he should be on the floor or how to protect the rim, etc. There is no way that Huskie group we saw on Saturday is representative of what will show on the court this coming season even if the coach has to go into the intramurals and recruit a couple of players. Their tallest player didn't play, look like he was nursing a leg injury. Of the 8 left 3 never left the bench unless it was a red alert 911 call and even with a 30 point deficit that call wasn't coming. The 5 that played were absolutely fatigued after the first quarter and were extremely undersized. No sign of the American Moore or of DaCin. There has to be others that were left behind in Saskatoon otherwise the city of bridges will have a season reminiscent of CBU last year.

Without a shadow of a doubt Dave Smart knows what he is doing and it has worked out fairly well for him over the years. What I am saying is that there is more than one way to attain success. Maybe Roy Rana's way will work, he also seems to know what he is doing. The past is the past and you cannot change it. The future will depend on the preparation that you do in the present.

Looking at MT's table of pre-season game results:

Fewest games played: MacEwan (0), UFV (1), six teams with (2).

Most games played: Carleton (14), McGill (13), Concordia (12). Note that Carleton also played a closed scrimmage against an NCAA team.

Not really sure what all this means come March. Cannot be good for MacEwan or UFV. Will be interesting to see if Concordia can emerge from the RSEQ instead of McGill.

I really wonder about you guys sometimes!! Do you seriously question which coach knows best? COME ON FELLAS

What could possibly be the downfall from more games? Fatigue? Are you serious??

I would think that the prospect of playing 12-15 games a year against solid NCAA Div 1 opponents is appealing to some recruits for many reasons.

Indeed. Perhaps even more appealing to Canadians looking to transfer back from the NCAA such as, Kewyn Blain, Clinton Springer-Williams, Kaza Kajami-Keane, Emmanuel Owootoah, Munis Tutu and Troy Reid-Knight, in recent years.

Two big games for the Badgers this weekend, will probably tell us quite a bit about the rankings in both CW and OUA. Badgers have flown a bit below the radar possibly.

Ryerson has no games scheduled for 34 days from early December to the first league game in January. I think this might change. No way that the top team (arguably) in the country is going to go with this kind of layoff. Or would it?

Badgers extending their lead in the 3rd Q, but Rams playing without some key guys nursing some things.
