George Brown women's basketball closed the first semester on a high note Saturday afternoon with their sixth straight win. The Huskies improved to 8-1 and remain tied atop the east division standings after a convincing 64-48 victory over Loyalist.
High-pressure defence was the story of the game as it has been for much of the season. George Brown had Loyalist frequently unable to advance the ball past half-court, frustrating the visitors to the tune of 26 turnovers, by far the biggest factor on the day.
After a so-so first half, the Huskies took complete control in the third quarter, extending the lead from eight to 18. Point guard Zae Sellers led the charge, on fire from beyond the arc to the tune of a 4-for-7 night. She wound up finishing with a team-high 18 points and six assists in just over 33 minutes of play - Tianna Sullivan (15 points) and Kiyann Grimaldo (12 points) also finished in double figures, with Grimaldo adding 11 points for the double-double.
The Huskies held Loyalist to just 28.8% shooting from the field, and outscored the visitors 32-20 in the paint.
Huskies great Sullivan was recognized at half-time after she became the first player in program history to eclipse the 1,000 career point mark. Sullivan has been an OCAA scoring champion, division champion, CCAA All-Canadian, OCAA 1st team all-star and George Brown female athlete of the year. The all-time great is in her fourth season with the program, and her legacy will live on long past her playing days.
