Wednesday July 20, 2016
L'équipe de basketball féminine écoute les directives de l'entraineur.

The 2016-17 women’s basketball season is right around the corner and the Gee-Gees will kick off the exhibition season with a border battle against the Seton Hall University Pirates. The matchup is set to take place on August 12, 7 p.m. at Montpetit Hall.

Seton Hall is a strong team that is coming off back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances. Their landscape however, looks much different this year as they have seven freshmen joining the team along with a redshirt junior (JaQuan Jackson). “The Hall” will make the stop in Ottawa to play the Gee-Gees and Carleton during their Canadian road trip between Montreal and Ottawa. The Pirates had a strong season last year with a 23-9 overall record and a trip to the NCAA tournament where they were bested by Duquesne University in the first round. They outscored their opponents last season by a margin of 6.5 points, shooting 42.5 percent from the floor and 33.2 percent from beyond the arc.

This game promises to be a high-flying start to the season. Tickets will be on sale online on Wednesday July 20.
