1968-69 University of Windsor Lancer Men’s Basketball Team
The last time the Windsor Lancers won a men’s basketball crown at the Canadian Championships was in 1969. Eddie Chittaro was now the bench boss and where as much of the team’s talent had previously come from places such a Rochester, NY this season three of the team’s starters were products of Windsor high schools. The team’s overall record was 17-6, going 10-0 in league play. The Lancers defeated McGill University and McMaster in the conference finals. The Canadian Championships were held in Waterloo that season, with Acadia University and Waterloo Lutheran University being the pre-tournament favorites. In a thrilling semi-final game Windsor prevailed over Acadia 79-76. In the championship game, the Lancers were also able to avenge an earlier loss to Waterloo Lutheran, taking the title. Chris Wydrzynski and Sante Salvador were All-Tournament selections, with honourable mentions going to Gerry Bunce, Mike Crowe, Ed Lanktree and Andy Auch.

FACT: Organ and tissue recovery takes place only after all efforts to save your life have been exhausted and death has been legally declared. The medical team treating you is completely separate from the transplant team. The organ procurement organization (OPO) is not notified until all lifesaving efforts have failed. The OPO does not notify the transplant team until the family has consented to donation.
