George Brown basketball showed why the men's team is number one and women's team number eight in the latest provincial rankings on Tuesday night, earning a pair of decisive blowout wins over Georgian.
The women's team improved to 3-1 after a 74-46 thrashing of the visiting Grizzlies. The Huskies turned the defensive screws tight from the get-go and were stifling in the full-court press, holding the visitors to just 17 first-half points with Georgian frequently struggling to advance the ball past half.
The Grizzlies shot just 34% from the field and were forced into 27 turnovers by suffocating George Brown pressure. The trap that has become a staple of the program continues to become more and more effective as the season progresses.
OCAA All-Star Tianna Sullivan (Toronto, Ont.) led the Huskies offensively, pouring in 26 points on 10-for-18 shooting from the field. The 5'9" wing was effective all over the court, showing why she was the OCAA's leading scorer in 2017-18. Janai Menzies (Mississauga, Ont.) had herself a solid night off the bench, finishing with nine points and a couple of assists.
The men's team is still perfect, now 5-0 after a dominant 102-58 win. George Brown jumped all over the Grizzlies from the opening tip, leading 28-16 through one quarter and 53-26 at the half - they wouldn't look back after that.
The Huskies held Georgian to 33.3% shooting from the floor and 25% from beyond the arc, as well as forcing 21 turnovers.
Ayoub Mohamed (Toronto, Ont.) paced the Huskies with 15 points on 6-for-12 shooting. Continuing the trend, scoring was balanced as Kevon Guisseppi-Mascoe (Scarborough, Ont.), Kingslee D'Silva (Mississauga, Ont.) and Liban Mohamed (Toronto, Ont.) all finished with 14 points.
Next up the Huskies will play host to St. Lawrence on Saturday, November 10 at St. James Campus.
