George Brown women's basketball assured themselves the east division's second seed on Sunday afternoon thanks to a 74-64 win over Durham that completed the season series sweep and moved the Huskies to 12-3 on the year.
Tianna Sullivan had one of her best all-around performances of the season, finishing with a near triple-double of 14 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists. The Lords were unable to deal with Sullivan's presence down low all afternoon, and the reigning scoring champion consistently outmuscled Durham in the paint.
Zae Sellers poured in 25 points and was deadly from beyond the arc, connecting on six of twelve three-point attempts. She also wreaked havoc in the full-court press, as the Huskies forced 23 turnovers and slowly wore down a normally high-scoring Lords attack. Ciara Findlayter continues to improve as the season progresses, contributing 13 points and seven boards.
With the win George Brown is locked into the east's second seed, and will host a crossover playoff game in a couple of weeks at Casa Loma.
The men's team improved to 15-3 with a 113-58 win over Fleming, the Huskies fifth win in six games.
Liban Mohamed exploded for 31 points, connecting on 9-of-16 three-point attempts, on fire from beyond the arc. Even more impressive was that the 31 points were in just over 23 minutes of play. Kevon Guiseppi-Mascoe finished with 18 points, hitting 3-of-4 three-pointers. As a team the Huskies went 15-for-36 from deep.
George Brown's elite defence held the Knights to just 30.8% shooting from the field and 13.7% from three, and the visitors were held under 19 points in each quarter.
It appears more than likely that the Huskies will end the regular season second in the east, though they still have an outside chance of leapfrogging Seneca for the division title.
Next up Huskies basketball heads to Barrie on Wednesday night to visit the Georgian Grizzlies.
