George Brown women’s basketball continued their incredible season-opening run on Saturday afternoon, reeling off their eighth straight win and defeating Seneca for the second time in nine days.

After a middling opening ten minutes, the Huskies full court press swung the momentum for good in the second frame. George Brown forced the Sting into five turnovers and outscored the visitors 23-10 in the quarter to take an eight-point advantage into the half.

“The pressure really galvanized us, and it’s helped us form an identity,” said head coach Warren Williams. “Our goal is to make other teams play at our tempo, and that’s what we were able to do today.”

 

First-year Husky Ashley McDonald continued what has been a great run of two-way play. The wing has been getting better and better as the season has worn on, and finished with a game-high six steals and five rebounds. She has been a terror on the defensive side of the ball. 

 

“She is a terrific young woman and someone who we can already rely on to play big minutes,” said Williams. “It’s exciting to see her development both on and off the court, and she’s a big part of what we are doing.”

 

The final score read 72-61; Tianna Sullivan had yet another double-double, this time a 20-point, 15-rebound performance. Point guard Aprille Deus finished with 16 points and five helpers.

 

With the win, George Brown assured themselves the crucial tiebreaker with Seneca and the season series. They are now one win away from a perfect first half of the season.

 

“We still talk about the process, making sure that we are doing things the right way,” added Williams. “We’re building our culture each and every day, and need to remain focused on getting better.”

 

Next up the Huskies will close the season’s first half with a visit to Durham on Friday, December 1st. Opening tip is scheduled for 7 p.m., follow @GBC_Huskies on twitter for updates throughout.
