Women’s basketball season closes with a win

Huskies stay in first place in East Division after a win against Loyalist College

Women’s basketball ended the 2018 season on a high note for George Brown College’s (GBC) Huskies.

On Saturday, Nov. 1, the women faced off against the Loyalist Lancers and finished the game with a 64-48 lead.

Huskies consistently stayed ahead of the Lancers throughout the game. It was in the third quarter where they really pulled away.

Scoring 20-12, they set themselves up with a 16 point lead for the final quarter.

“Loyalist played really well to start the game but I thought then we imposed our will, our style of play on the game,” said GBC head coach Warren Williams.

In the first half, Loyalist kept pace close behind GBC, finishing the first quarter with 15-10, and the second with 13-10.

In the fourth quarter, the teams tied 16-16.

“But credit to George Brown they got us out of our element with their pressure and they’re a really talented team,” said Loyalist’s head coach Caleb Hugh.

The final quarter of the game ended in a 16-16 tie between the colleges.

Zae Sellers led the way for the team, winning 18 of the points, while Tianna Sullivan followed close behind with 15 points and Kiyann Grimaldo with 12.

“I felt we played together. For the most part, just you know the little here and there you know, back and forth with the team but overall I think we stayed together” said Sullivan.

At the half-time break, GBC took the opportunity to award Sullivan for breaking 1,000 career points.

This is the first player in the history of the program at GBC to accomplish this.

The women are currently ranked first in the East Division alongside Algonquin College.

GBC’s women will pick up the basketball season in the New Year on Jan. 11 against Centennial.
