BlackBerry - CIS Top Ten Tuesday (#13): Many changes at the top

OTTAWA (CIS) – Four teams move to the top of CIS national rankings this week including UBC in women’s volleyball, Laval in men’s volleyball, Windsor in women’s basketball and Toronto in men’s swimming.
 
Meanwhile, Carleton (men’s basketball), McGill (women’s hockey), Alberta (men’s hockey) and Calgary (women’s swimming) all remain in pole position in their respective sports, while Calgary (women) and UNB (men) are No. 1 in the first wrestling rankings of the season.
 
In women’s volleyball, the Thunderbirds (6-2) travelled to Winnipeg and swept a two-game series over the Manitoba Bisons (4-3), who were No. 1 before the duels. UBC moves up five spots in the new Top 10 following a straight-set win and a 3-1 victory.
 
In men’s volleyball, the undefeated Rouge et Or (9-0) are up one position to No. 1 following three wins in three outings versus AUS rivals in interlock play, including a 3-1 success against No. 8 Dalhousie. Meanwhile, formerly top-ranked Alberta falls to No. 2 after a weekend split with No. 3 Trinity Western that included a straight-set loss.
 
In women’s basketball, the Lancers (5-1) return to the top after falling to No. 2 a week ago. Windsor moves up thanks to convincing wins over Ottawa, 81-58, and No. 7 Carleton, 68-48, but also to a lopsided 23-point loss (72-49) by former No. 1 Victoria at the hands of No. 3 Regina.
 
In men’s basketball, the top-ranked Ravens (6-0) kept rolling over the past weekend with dominating road victories against Western, 91-66, and No. 8 Windsor, 78-59.
 
In women’s hockey, the Martlets (7-0) and Olympic gold medalist Charline Labonté blanked Ottawa 3-0 in their lone outing of the past week. Labonté improved to 54-1 in conference play for her career including 33 shutouts, which ties her for first all-time with current Laurier goalie Liz Knox.
 
In men’s hockey, the Golden Bears (10-1-1) held on to the pole position despite dropping a point to archrival Saskatchewan during a two-game set in Edmonton. Alberta claimed the opener 6-4 on Friday before losing 4-3 in overtime to the No. 6 Huskies on Saturday.
