The UNB Varsity Reds and Alberta Pandas are once again the teams to beat in U SPORTS men’s and women’s hockey.

In women’s hockey, Alberta (13-4-3) jumped back in to top spot following back-to-back 2-0 and 5-0 shutouts in a home-and-home series against Calgary. The Pandas visit Regina this weekend for a two-game set.

In other U SPORTS rankings, Carleton (men’s basketball), Acadia (women’s basketball), UBC (men’s and women’s swimming, women’s volleyball), Trinity Western (men’s volleyball), Guelph (men’s and women’s track and field), Alberta (men’s wrestling) and Brock (women’s wrestling) all remain national leaders for another week.
