Champlain Hosting the Best in Quebec College Basketball

Champlain College Saint-Lambert is opening its doors to welcome the best college basketball players in Quebec this weekend to the 2012-13 RSEQ Division 1 College Basketball Championships. The top 6 men’s and women’s teams will be battling it out over the weekend of March 1 -3.

Champlain will be well represented once again, with both teams advancing to the Provincials for the second straight season. The ladies, who were .500 this year with a 9-9 record will be playing the Vanier Cheetahs in the opening game of the Championship, at 2:00 PM on Friday afternoon. Led by seniors Kathleen Belanger-Finn, Jennifer Mathurin and Jessica Frequiere, the #6 ranked Cavaliers are looking to pull off the upset on their home court.

On the men’s side, the Cavaliers finished their gruelling season with a 16-5 record, good enough to finish atop the very competitive  collegiate men’s league in the RSEQ. The men have earned a bye through to the semi-finals and will be playing their match on Saturday, March 2nd at 2:30 PM. The Cavaliers haven’t missed the Provincials since 2000 and have medalled in all but one of those appearances.

Day passes and weekend passes are available at the door throughout the weekend. Support Champlain and support your Cavaliers! Come out and enjoy the fun!
