HUSKIES STARS TIANNA SULLIVAN AND ZAE SELLERS RECOGNIZED AT WOMEN'S BASKETBALL AWARDS BANQUET

HUSKIES STARS TIANNA SULLIVAN AND ZAE SELLERS RECOGNIZED AT WOMEN'S BASKETBALL AWARDS BANQUET

Fifth-year Huskies star Tianna Sullivan was awarded for yet another standout season at Wednesday nights Awards Banquet, named the East Division Scoring Champion as well as an OCAA First-Team All-Star. Sullivan averaged 17.3 points a night to lead the Division, marking the second consecutive year she has led the East in scoring. Her 126 made field goals ranked her sixth in the province, and she was also among the strongest rebounders in Ontario - her 175 total boards ranked her eighth in Ontario.

"Tianna has been the cornerstone of our program's turnaround in the last three years. Her ability to score has been legendary, completing a career that saw her finish back to back seasons as the East's leading scorer, a First Team All-Star, a All-Canadian and the fifth leading scorer in OCAA history," said head coach Warren Williams. "She was a fierce presence on the defensive end, ending the season as the East's fifth leading rebounder and fourth in steals. I am proudest that she matured into a great teammate and a leader by example in a program that went 29-5 in the East over the last two years."

Sullivan finishes her Huskies career as the programs leading scorer, and will be remembered as an all-time Huskies great who always left it all on the court.

In her first year as a Husky, point guard Zae Sellers was nothing short of spectacular. Sellers was also recognized for her standout season at the OCAA Women's Basketball Awards Banquet, named an OCAA East Division Second-Team All-Star.

A leader from the day she arrived, Sellers was instrumental in George Brown's 14-3 regular season record and an equally crucial cog on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Sellers was Ontario's best shooter from beyond the arc, hitting a scorching 42.6% of her three-point attempts. She averaged 14.8 points, and finished in the OCAA's top ten in steals with 60 (fourth), assists with 84 (eighth), and free-throw percentage at 74.6% (ninth). Her play on the defensive side of the ball was a catalyst for a Huskies team that forced the second most turnovers in Ontario, and the lethally effective full-court press was largely thanks to Sellers contributions.

"Zae has been the consummate leader this year. Besides her terrific play on the court where she was the East's third-leading scorer, second in assists, first in steals and the OCAA three-point percentage leader, she was the anchor of a team that finished second in the East with a 14-3 record," said head coach Williams. "She is well deserving of an honour that recognizes her fantastic season."
