GAME STORY:

Second-year guard Emilie Morasse scored a game-high 18 points as Gee-Gees women’s basketball dug themselves a deep hole before making a game of the OUA final, eventually losing to No. 2 Windsor 68-51 on Saturday night.


The Lancers, which lost just one regular season game in the OUA West, are conference champions for the first time in school history.


The Gee-Gees, which handed the Lancers their only loss of the 22-game regular season, trailed 42-14 at the half but out-scored Windsor 37-26 in the second-half to make the score close.


“They went off in the first half,” said Gee-Gees first-year head coach Andy Sparks, the OUA East coach of the year. “We had a nice response in the second half and hopefully we can build on that at the national tournament.”

 

The Gee-Gees advance to the women’s basketball program’s third berth at the CIS tournament, March 6-8 at the University of Regina. 

uOttawa has not earned a women’s basketball national title.
