Adam Costanzo (Men’s Basketball)

Freshman Adam Costanzo continued his standout rookie season on Tuesday night, leading the now 8-1 Huskies to a bounce back 85-78 win over Durham. The versatile 6’6” wing has quickly become one of the division’s scariest two-way threats, a player with the ability to finish at an elite level on the break and clog the lane defensively with his length and athleticism. Costanzo filled the stats sheet up against the Lords, scoring 20 points on an efficient 6-for-9 shooting for the floor while collecting a team-high thirteen boards to go along with three steals. George Brown will finish the first half perfect on the road, and face Fleming at home on Wednesday night in their final game before the holiday break. Costanzo is averaging 12.9 points and 8.1 rebounds a night on the season.

Ashley McDonald (Women’s Basketball)

First-year Husky Ashley McDonald continued to establish herself among Ontario’s elite rookies last week, playing perhaps her two best games of the season as George Brown improved to 8-0. In a 92-86 road win over Durham McDonald stuffed the stats sheet, finishing with 12 points, four steals and three blocks. She followed that up with a six steal, five rebound performance in the Huskies second win against Seneca, this time a 72-61 decision, in nine days on Saturday. "Ashley shows the composure of a third-year player,” glowed head coach Warren Williams. The Huskies are now one win away from a perfect first half of the season; they will against visit the Durham Lords on Friday night.
