MEN’S VOLLEYBALL OPEN OCAA CHAMPIONSHIP WITH QUARTER-FINAL MATCHUP AGAINST REDEEMER

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

George Brown men’s volleyball (14-5, 2nd east) will open the OCAA Championship on Thursday afternoon with a quarter-final matchup against the Redeemer Royals (14-5).

The Huskies are coming off an impressive 3-1 crossover playoff win over Sheridan, and led by D’Artaniel Jackman and Ahmed Youssef boast an imposing frontline. Jackman was as good as he’s been all year in the crossover game, finishing with 29 points and 21 kills in the win. Yuseph Jackman also stepped up in a starting role, adding 14 points and 11 kills – he’ll be a crucial x-factor at provincials if he stays rolling.

Not much separates the two teams, both finishing the regular season 13-5 while going 7-2 on the road. The Royals highest-scorer is outside hitter Linden Bontkes, who is averaging 3.8 pts/g.

The winner of Thursday afternoon’s matchup will advance the semi-finals, where they will take on the winner of the Fanshawe Falcons – Fleming Knights matchup.
