The 2019 U SPORTS Men's FINAL 8 comes to a close

Men's national Basketball Championship puts another great tournament in the books



After an action-packed weekend fraught with intense rivalries and shocking plays, the 2019 U SPORTS Men's Final 8 Championship closed its three year run at the Scotiabank Centre, as it moves to Ottawa in 2020. Carleton finished on top for the 14th time in the last 17 seasons, increasing their record for the most wins by a team in the Final 8 tournament.

Gold Medal Game

The Carleton Ravens took on the defending champion Calgary Dinos for the national title. The Ravens took a commanding lead of 9-0 within the first 2 minutes, forcing Calgary to play catch-up through the entire game. The Dinos couldn't find their rhythm and fell second to Carleton with an 83-49 final score.

Bronze Medal Game

The Dalhousie Tigers faced-off against the Ryerson Rams following Dal's hard-fought loss against Carleton in their semi-final game. It was a close first half, with the Rams ultimately pulling away in the second half of the game. Ryerson ended up overtaking the hosting Tigers with an 84-66 win.

Consolation Final Game

The Saint Mary's Huskies played a tough game against the UBC Thunderbirds in the Consolation Final. The Huskies battled for the fifth place spot, but ultimately fell short to UBC in the high-scoring 95-86 game.
