First I want to send out our deepest condolences to Danielle DeGagne, a player for the North Dakota State Lady Bisons.  Danielle had flown back to Brandon, MB this past weekend to be with her ailing mother who would later pass away.  Please keep Danielle, one of our Canadian baller family, in your prayers.
