GEORGE BROWN BASKETBALL HEADED TO CENTENNIAL FOR KEY MATCHUPS WEDNESDAY NIGHT

-------------------------------

George Brown basketball will travel to Centennial on Wednesday night for a pair of crucial games against the Colts. 

The men’s team (13-2, 2nd east) currently sit three games up on Centennial in the loss column for second in the east, and a win would assure themselves a finish no worse than second in the division. 

Centre Justin Bhangoo, a former Dalhousie Tiger, has turned himself into an increasingly important piece on both ends of the court. The 6'7" big has the range to pull defenders from the paint and work on the perimeter, and his skill set was on full display in an 82-48 win over Algonquin. Bhangoo shot 9-for-11 to finish with 21 points, and his continued improvement is crucial as the OCAA Championship inches closer.

Newcomer De-Shaun Williams had his best game as a Husky in Sunday's 100-93 victory over Canadore, pouring in a team-high 23 points on 10-for-14 shooting while doing major damage on the glass. Williams adds another dimension to what is already among the best set of guards in the province, joining Alex Petronis, Dejazmatch James, Teshayn Gayle and Chris Fields to form an elite backcourt rotation.

Centennial heads into the night with a record of 12-5; George Brown won the first matchup 75-60 at Casa Loma.

The women's team (12-1, 1st east) can lock up first place in the east with two wins in their final four games. 

Tianna Sullivan is currently the OCAA's highest scorer, averaging 21.1 points a night on 43.5% shooting from the field. Sullivan's ability to both create her own shot and open the floor is the engine for the second highest scoring team (80.8 points per game) in Ontario. 

George Brown currently ranks among Ontario's top-five in field goals made per game, field goal percentage, free-throws attempted and converted, offensive rebounding, steals and assists.

The Huskies won the first matchup 87-64 over Centennial, and the Colts head into Wednesday with a record of 7-8.
