Gee-Gees women's basketball

The University of Ottawa women’s basketball team opened up their season on Friday night with a strong performance on home court. Head coach Andy Sparks’s troops dominated the Laurier Golden Hawks in a blowout win.

“We’re going to see this team again. We don’t take this lightly—we’re going to use this as motivation.” —Angela Ribarich, Gee-Gees centre.

“It was a game that had a lot on the line, and we did have a high stress level. But you can tell with our press offence that our seniors were struggling with the ball at the end, but a learning experience will be better next time.’’ —Andy Sparks, Gee-Gees head women’s basketball coach.

This year, U of O varsity teams have been giving back to the community in many different ways—some donating blood, others going to developing countries to teach their respective sports, while still others focused on more local causes.
