HUSKIES WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TO OPEN NEW YEAR AT SENECA STING CLASSIC

HUSKIES WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TO OPEN NEW YEAR AT SENECA STING CLASSIC

Huskies women's basketball will open 2019 on Friday afternoon at the Seneca Sting Invitational.

George Brown put together an impressive fall semester, finishing the first half 8-1 and tied with Algonquin for top spot in the east. The Huskies have won six straight games on the back of a deep, balanced roster - they currently rank fourth in the province in points per game (73.1) and sixth in points allowed per game (57.7). George Brown's high-pressure defence has been a dominant force all season, and their 14.9 steals a night ranks them second in the province.

First-year Husky Zae Sellers has established herself among the best point guards in the OCAA, a savvy leader on both ends of the court. The 5'4" Minnesota native currently ranks third in Ontario with 44 assists and fourth in steals with 33 while averaging 14.4 points a night. Her ability to calm and set the offence while leading the press have been big-time difference makers.

Reigning scoring champion Tianna Sullivan has continued as a dominant force on the offensive end, averaging a team-best 17.8 points a night while shooting 46.6% from the floor. She also leads the team on the boards, averaging 9.6 a game.

George Brown opens play at 4:00 p.m. on Friday against Sheridan.
