Men’s Volleyball @ HC 2:00pm

The second half of the men’s volleyball regular season opens with the Tommies (5-1) facing the last place Holland College Hurricanes (1-5). The Tommies will look to stay hot as they closed out the first semester winning five straight matches without dropping a set.

 

Women’s Volleyball vs DAL AC 2:00pm @ LB Gym

Fresh off of their first CN Tournament win the Tommies will look to ride that momentum into the second semester with a matchup against the 3-4 Dal AC Rams. The Rams feature one of the ACAA’s top hitters in Marit Zwinselman, who sits second in the league in kills per set.

The Tommies will open the second semester with a tough travel weekend to Halifax, kicking things off with a matchup against the UKC Blue Devils, who are chasing the Tommies in the standings and currently in fourth with a 4-2 record. The Tommies previously defeated the Blue Devils 61-58 in Halifax on November 17th.

 

Men’s Basketball @ UKC 5:30pm

Women’s Hockey vs UdeM 7:00pm @ Grant Harvey Centre

Women’s Basketball @ MSVU 1:00pm

In a CCAA “Marquee Matchup” the #9 ranked Tommies will face the #6 ranked MSVU Mystics in what could be a battle for first place in the ACAA standings. Both teams currently sit with a 5-1 record, with the Tommies handing the Mystics their lone defeat, a 77-63 setback on November 16th.

 

Women’s Hockey vs DAL 3:00pm

The Tigers are currently right behind the Tommies in the AUS standings and win in Fredericton would go a long way to hunting them down for playoff seeding. A win for the Tommies could potentially move them to three games above .500 for the first time this season.

 

Men’s Basketball @ MSVU 3:00pm

The Tommies will be in Halifax for their second meeting with the Mystics, after handing them an 80-72 defeat back on November 16th. The ACAA standings are currently wide open with just one win separating the first-place team and the fourth place team.
