HUSKIES VOLLEYBALL CONTINUE PLAYOFF PUSH FRIDAY NIGHT AGAINST SENECA

-----

George Brown volleyball will play host to the Seneca Sting on Friday night in a pair of games against their crosstown rivals.

The men’s team (11-2, 2nd east) are locked in a battle with Georgian for top spot in the east, currently knotted up with 22 points apiece. With the Grizzlies hosting this year’s provincial championship, the Huskies will need to lock up a top two spot to avoid a crossover game – that looks promising, as they currently hold a six-point advantage over third-place Canadore.

Winners of five straight, the Huskies are undoubtedly among the deepest team’s in Ontario. In addition to OCAA All-Star D’Artaniel Jackman, George Brown boasts an impressive set of supporting players. Middle Ahmed Youssef and outside hitters Neon Ng, Ray Tangenco and Matt Krok are all averaging at least 2.3 points per set while providing the Huskies with a uniquely deep set of threats.

George Brown will be looking to complete the season sweep of Seneca, having earlier defeated the Sting 3-2 on the road. Seneca heads into the night with a record of 3-9.

The women’s team (0-13, 10th east) will look to continue improving against a tough 7-5 Sting squad. Lately, the Husky have given both Durham and La Cite solid fights, and several midseason additions have made a big impact.

First-year head coach Daphne Choi continues to implement her style of play, and as the year has gone on George Brown has undoubtedly become more comfortable. The final stretch of the season will be a momentum builder as the program looks toward the future.

Women’s game gets underway at 6 p.m., men’s game at 8 p.m. Follow @GBC_Huskies on twitter for updates throughout the day.
