Despite the loss of super-stars Wendel and Baines, the future still looks bright for the Gees going forward, with a big recruiting class this year.
As a result of this loss, the Gees’ record is now 14–8–4 and they sit in sixth place in the Ontario University Athletics East Division.
Both the men’s and women’s teams were looking to avenge losses to Carleton earlier this season, but unfortunately retribution would have to wait.
The Gees only have four games remaining before the playoffs, and while they are holding on to second place in the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ), they’re not guaranteed anything yet.
Both teams have one more weekend before their much-anticipated Capital Hoops matchup, and a chance to avenge their losses to Carleton.
The Gees looked out of sorts all game, and a major blowout was the end result. When the last buzzer mercifully sounded the final score read an embarrassing 80–41.
The Gees faced their cross-town rivals on Jan. 13 for the third of four meetings between the teams this year. The two teams combined for 18 goals in their first two meetings, with Ottawa coming out on top both times, so a high-scoring game was to be expected.
The Gee-Gees women’s basketball team took down two Ontario University Athletics (OUA) conference rivals over the weekend in an impressive fashion to improve their record to 7–2.
The Gee-Gees men’s basketball team saw their winning streak stretch to nine games as they won both their weekend match-ups.
