On the hardwood, March Madness continues south of the border however, Saskatchewan’s version Hoopla wrapped up over the weekend. The intriguing story came in the 5A girls division where Regina’s Leboldus snapped Saskatoon’s Holy Cross’ 84 game winning streak with a 78-70 win in the Championship game on Saturday.

On the links, the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill will be played today with Tiger Woods holding a two stroke lead. Play was suspended after poor weather moved in yesterday. Weyburn’s Graham DeLaet was able to get his final round of 73 in but he’s well back in a tie for 53rd. The shot of the shortened day, however, came from Sergio Garcia. Check it out here.

Rey Of Light For the Rider ‘D’?

The Saskatchewan Roughriders appear to have made another off-season addition to their defense. Numerous sources are indicating this morning that the Saskatchewan Roughriders will announce the signing of Middle Linebacker Rey Williams today. Williams spent a pair of seasons with the Riders before bolting to Hamilton as a Free Agent. The Tabbies, released Williams earlier this year.

The addition of Williams seems to spell the end for Joe Lobendahn who was brought in for the final nine games of the Rider season in 2012 to shore up a prous run defence.
