For the first time since 2012-13, both George Brown Huskies basketball teams are headed to the OCAA Championship.

The women’s team advanced to the OCAA Championship thanks to a 97-71 win over the visiting Conestoga Condors, qualifying for the Championship for the first time since 2012-13. The Huskies pressed early and often, forcing 32 turnovers and quickly tiring a short Condors bench.

Freshman Merrissa Moore was unbelievable, coming through with her best performance of the season. The first-year Husky shot a blistering 6-for-9 from beyond the arc, finishing with a game-high 22 points. George Brown’s ball movement left Moore with great looks all afternoon, and she finished more often than not.

Fresh off wrapping up the league scoring title, wing Tianna Sullivan was unstoppable in the half-court. The fourth-year Toronto native poured in 19 points on 7-for-14 shooting from the floor, and made some special one-on-one plays. Sullivan has become nearly unguardable without sending a second defender.

The Huskies bench outscored Conestoga's 41-14, and were plus-12 in the points in the paint battle. Aprille Deus finished with 20 points, seven assists and seven boards.

George Brown will now face the winner of Niagara - Loyalist in the OCAA Championship quarter-finals at Humber College. The Huskies will be looking to medal for the first time since 2011-12, when they took home a bronze medal.

The men’s team qualified via a 86-76 win over Mohawk, making it nine straight wins for the east's second seed. After the Mountaineers trimmed the lead to seven in the third quarter, George Brown ran away with it and could breath easy during the fourth.

Dejazmatch James paced George Brown with 17 points and great work on the defensive end. The fifth-year guard was tenacious on both ends of the court, getting to the rim at will and wreaking havoc on Mohawk's guards all night. James veteran leadership will come in even bigger come Championship time.

De-Shaun Williams was also excellent, pouring in 15 points on 7-for-15 shooting. Justin Bhangoo and Adam Costanzo combined for 24 points and 10 boards, working a nice two-man game.

The Huskies dominated the glass, winning the battle of the boards 62-43. George Brown's bench outscored the Mountaineers 37-22.

The Huskies will face Humber in the OCAA Championship quarter-finals at Niagara College.
