Point-guard Denburk Reid, a 25-year-old economics student with the basketball Redmen, tallied 39 points in two games and became the all-time leading scorer in McGill history. The 5-foot-7, 148-pound point-guard, the second shortest in the country, currently has 2,162 points, surpassing the school record of 2,126, held since 1987 by forward Willie Hinz. Reid broke the record with a 24-point performance in McGill's 65-57 upset at Bishop's February 4, and added 15 more in the next day's 75-58 loss to fifth-ranked Laval.

The Opera McGill production of Louis Riel (1967, Harry Somers) won rave reviews from local media when it played January 27 and 28 at Theatre de Maisonneuve. The Gazette noted conductor Alexis Hauser oversaw a brilliant performance by students who rose splendidly to its challenge and that stage director François Racine combined symbolism with verismo to great effect. Set by Vincent Lefevre, costumes by Mireille Vachon, and lighting by Luc Prairie. Here we see (left to right) McGill music students and graduates: John Taylor as Bishop Taché, Christinel Ruse as Father André; Luc Lalonde as Louis Riel; and Sylvain Paré as François-Xavier Lemieux (Riel's lawyer).
