This Wednesday, the two UTM men’s basketball teams will match up in the first round of playoffs. This will be the second time that both UTM teams face each other this season, and the White squad is geared up for a win to redeem themselves from last semester’s 75–46 loss to UTM Blue.
UTM Blue finished fourth in the division with nine wins and one loss. One game was deemed a forfeit because of Kent Bray’s short-lived term on the Ryerson University varsity team. Had there been no forfeit, the Blue team would have placed second in a division of 10 teams.
As for UTM White, in their first season playing in Division 1 after moving up from Division 2, they ranked one spot below UTM Blue. They finished with a record of six wins and five losses.
The game will tip off at 8 p.m. this Wednesday in the main gym when the two teams decide their fate. The winner will advance to the semifinals.
