Bison athletes garner all-star recognition

On March 3, the University of Manitoba men’s basketball team had its season cut short by the University of British Columbia Okanagan Heat in the first round of the Canada West basketball playoff tournament.

The Huskies upset the herd by winning two straight games to secure the best of three series and move on to the Canada West semifinals.
