Celebrating a special night for Huskies basketball player Dwayne Harrison, who survived a cardiac arrest few months back, the men’s team showed its best and crushed the undefeated Georgian College, Grizzlies, 87-63 in their first home game this season on Nov. 01.

GBC president Anne Sado was also present to grace the occasion.

34 points and 10 rebounds were scored by OCAA all-star Vadim Halimov, Ted Johnson added 13 points while Dejazmatch James and Ricardo Brown hammered eight points each.

The men’s team continued their winning streak on Nov. 2 with another victory over Canadore College of North Bay, 95-60.

Playing with lots of confidence, the Huskies lead in each quarter with a scoreline of 29-13, 49-26 and 77-43.

Currently, GBC men’s basketball team has a 3-2 record in the OCAA east division.

The women’s basketball team also won their home opener against the Grizzlies, 52-43. The win did not come as a big surprise for GBC as they crushed Georgian College for the fifth time in a row.

They stand at the sixth position in the OCAA rankings with one win and two losses this season.


Huskies women’s and men’s volleyball teams play for breast cancer

A strong desire to raise money for the breast cancer patients pushed the Huskies volleyball women’s and men’s team to win against Durham College of Oshawa on Oct. 30.

Suffering a loss in the first part of the game, George Brown College (GBC) women’s team turned the battle to their favor and won 3-2 (25-23, 15-25, 20-25, 25-13, 16-14).

In a brutal deciding match, the Huskies were trailing behind at 9-13 but the team’s cohesion at the end made them cross the line.

The women’s volleyball team failed to keep up to the good start to the season, losing back to back games against Canadore College of North Bay, 3-0 and Seneca 3-1.

With two wins and three losses this season, GBC women’s volleyball stands at seventh position in the east division Ontario Colleges Athletics Association (OCAA) rankings.

Also playing for cancer, the men’s Huskies team felt the sweet taste of victory, winning against Durham, 3-1 (19-25, 25-23, 26-24, 25-20).

Supported by the crowd in the stands, GBC showed its real character. After a poor beginning they came back and trashed the opposition.
