TOP 15 OF 2015-2016: #9 – VARSITY REDS HOST CIS WOMEN’S BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

 

The Bronze Baby was in the house and up for grabs.

For four days, the Currie Center was abuzz as the top women’s university basketball teams in the country tried to top each other.

In the end, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies prevailed, beating the Ryerson University Rams in an exciting final.

The host Varsity Reds pushed the No. 1 ranked McGill Martlets to the brink of upset in their quarter-final game, falling 58-52 before a near capacity crowd.

“We knew we belonged in this tournament,” said Varsity Reds guard Grace Wade. “The crowd was a spark, for sure, a good thing to have behind us.”
