College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
Day nine of the Olympics is a light one when it comes to how much hardware could be had in Vancouver today. Four medals in total on the line, starting with some alpine skiing action as the Men’s Super G takes place at Whistler. Perhaps the Canadians men can make up for a lackluster performance in the Downhill. Over to the icy track there are two medals up for grabs in the Men’s and Women’s skeleton. On the Men’s side Canadian Jon Montgomery sits in the two spot following two runs down the track. For the ladies Mellisa Hollingsworth is in medal contention as well. The women also completed two runs. Hollingsworth is third and looking to move up. The last medal is in cross country skiing as the Ladies’ 15 km pursuit will be in full swing this afternoon. There’s also plenty of curling action today, including both the men and women Canucks up against their counterparts from Denmark. In hockey, Sweden will look to avoid any type of upset as they battle Belarus.
The Toronto Raptors will be dealing with some adversity this evening. For the first time this season they will be without their five-time all star Chris Bosh. The good news is they’re in New Jersey to take on the worst team in the league, the Nets. Toronto dropped it’s first game following the all star break on Wednesday night at home 109-102 in overtime to the Memphis Grizzlies. Bosh injured his ankle late in the fourth quarter. Look for Andrea Bargnani to carry the load tonight and get the Raptors back to their winning ways.
