George Brown women’s basketball (7-0, 1st east) will play host to Seneca on Saturday afternoon in a quick rematch of the season’s biggest games to date, a 74-54 Huskies win.

The women are coming off a 92-86 win over the Durham Lords on Tuesday night, making it two consecutive victories over top-ten ranked OCAA teams. They have now outscored opponents by a whopping 145 points on the season, the second-best mark in the province and best in the division.

The Huskies currently rank among Ontario’s top-five in points per game (second), field goal percentage (fourth), assists per game (third), free throw percentage (fourth), and made field goal attempts (third). They have hit the 20-plus steal mark on four occasions, and the defensive pressure has turned them into an elite defensive unit.

Freshmen wing Ashley McDonald has blossomed as of late, averaging 13.5 points a night on 60% shooting from the field over her last two games. The 5’9” Mississauga native is an excellent athlete with a knack for getting to the rim, and her continued acclimation to the college game spells trouble for the rest of the province.

First-year Husky Merrissa Moore has also grown her game substantially since the season opener, averaging 9.5 points and four rebounds over the past two big wins. She went 3-for-6 from beyond the arc against Seneca, and her ability to both stretch the defense and work in the post has made her an exceedingly difficult cover.

Seneca bounced back from Friday’s loss with a win over Loyalist, and remain just one game back of the Huskies in the win column at 5-1.

The game tips off at 3 p.m. in the Casa Loma Gym, follow @GBC_Huskies on twitter for updates throughout.
