Tigers Weekend Recap (Mar. 1-3)
Megan Willox - March 4, 2013
Women’s Volleyball CIS Championship
Dalhousie’s women’s volleyball team travelled to l’Université de Sherbrooke to compete in the CIS championship from February 28 – March 2. CIS No. 5 seed Dalhousie took on CIS No. 4 seed Trinity Western in the quarter-finals on Thursday. Unfortunately the Spartans came out strong and controlled the court winning 3-0 against the Tigers. Taking on Laval in a consolation semifinal on Friday, the black and gold came back with a vengeance. Laval narrowly claimed the first set, but Dal fought hard and won the next set to tie the game up. Battling hard the Tigers couldn’t quite take the lead, and despite a 17-point effort by Maggie Li, Dalhousie lost 3-1, marking the end of the team's weekend.
Men’s Basketball AUS Championship
The Tigers opened up the AUS championship against StFX Friday night at the Halifax Metro Centre. Although Dal had a 10-point lead at the end of the first quarter, the X-Men soon took control of the court and had a 14-point lead by the end of the third quarter. The black and gold showed their colours and stepped up their game. With a 20-point effort by Hassan Abdullahi, the black and gold started to close the gap, but time ran out and the Tigers fell 74-70 putting an end to the 2012-13 season.
