Alabama concludes Canadian trip with 3-1 record

The Crimson Tide beat the Ottawa Bee Gees (actually the Gee Gees, although I think Ottawa should think about a name change) 88-64 Monday. The previous results are in the post below.

Hendrix led the team with 26 points on 12-19 shooting. Torrance and Gee also were in double figures.

It's good to get some of the young guys some PT as it will help them during the course of the season.

McGill is the Redmen. They would have been sued in this country by the NCAA.

I was curious, so I started looking at other odd Canadian University mascots. A Gee-Gee is taken from horse racing where a Gee-Gee is the first horse out of the starting gate.

There is also:

Lethbridge Pronghorns
Simon Fraser Clan (sounds like a bunch of necks)
Calgary Dinos
Victoria Vikes
Winnipeg Wesmen (I have no idea about this one)
Cape Breton University (CBU) Capers
St. Francis Xavier X-Men, or X-Women
Acadia Axemen, or Axewomen
Univ of New Brunswick (UNB) Varsity Reds
Laval Rouge-et-Or (Red and Gold)
Bishop Gaiters (not an alligator, but an article of clothing worn by Anglican bishops)
Université du Québec à Montréal(UQAM) Citadins
Guelph Gryphons

Damn... good digging there. My favorite of the bunch is the Fraser Clan.
