ADAM COSTANZO, CHRIS FIELDS BRING HOME HARDWARE FOR 17-3 HUSKIES MEN’S BASKETBALL PROGRAM

George Brown's Adam Costanzo and Chris Fields were recognized at Thursday's OCAA Men's Basketball Awards Banquet for a pair of standout seasons.

A year after being named the OCAA's East Division Rookie of the Year, Adam Costanzo put together an impressive encore performance in his second season and was named an East Division First-Team All-Star. The 6'6" Ottawa native averaged a near double-double of 11.4 points and 7.6 rebounds a night, and was a model of consistency throughout the campaign. He was among the biggest reasons that the Huskies went 17-3 during the regular season, including a perfect 10-0 at home, and finished second in the east. His versatility allowed Costanzo to be equally effective on the perimeter and down low, a tough guard for any defensive alignment.

"Adam brought intensity and energy every game this season from start to finish," said head coach Peter Sambu. "His team-first mentality was a positive influence on the 18-19 Huskies squad."

An award frequently won by an imposing big, point guard Chris Fields made such an impact defensively that he has been named the OCAA's Defensive Player of the Year. The 5'9" Montreal native poses a lethal combination of length, quickness and aggressiveness that turned him into the best defensive player in Ontario. Fields 47 steals on the season ranked him third in the province, and he averaged 3.4 boards a night. His ability to pressure opposing guards was the biggest catalyst for an elite Huskies defense, hounding opponents for 94-feet and consistently forcing turnovers.

"Chris has shown all season long to be one of the best defensive players in the OCAA," said Sambu. "Chris can guard all guard positions his quickness and strength and defensive play was a big part of our team's success in 18-19 season."
