TBaytel Varsity Cup tournament

Tournament preview links: [CIS] ~ [U of M] ~ [L.U.]

The Bisons won this tournament last season with a 7-6 overtime victory over the host Lakehead team in the final. This tournament is a real grind. The four teams play a round-robin for 3 games in 3 days. The top two then play for the title.

The problem with winning the tournament last season was that the Bisons came off the grind on short rest when regular season play resumed, and had a severe new year hangover. At least this year, the way the calendar falls means that the Bisons and Huskies won't play again until they meet in Saskatown on January 9th.
