U SPORTS Top Ten Tuesday

U SPORTS Top Ten Tuesday

Week number 23 of the U SPORTS Top Ten rankings features the Tigers men's basketball at 7, men's track and field at 9 and women's volleyball at 3.

TORONTO (U SPORTS)- The Ottawa Gee-Gees are the new team to beat in U SPORTS women’s basketball.

In the final rankings of the season, the Gee-Gees (21-2 / 1-0 playoffs) claimed their first No.1 ranking in program history after eliminating the York Lions in the OUA quarterfinals on Saturday. The change at the top ends Laval’s run (15-1 / 0-0 playoffs) in the pole position dating to the beginning of the season. The Gee-Gees will host No. 6 Lakehead (20-4 / 1-0 playoffs) in the OUA semifinal on Wednesday night, where they can qualify for the U SPORTS Women’s Basketball Final 8 Presented by COMDA.COM at Ryerson next week with a victory.

In other U SPORTS rankings, Alberta (men’s and women’s hockey), Carleton (men’s basketball) Brandon (men’s volleyball), Ryerson (women’s volleyball) and Guelph (men’s and women’s track and field) remain national leaders for another week.

The Final Top 10 rankings of the 2018-19 season will be released next Tuesday, Mar. 5.

New this season, U SPORTS is implementing the ELO Rating System for the calculation of its weekly national rankings. Powered by RankR, ELO’s unique algorithm blends a statistical calculation with customized variables that is adaptable across a range of sports. For men’s hockey, it will be combined with the results of the media panel balloting (each weighted 50%) to produce the final top 10. For more information, click here.
