The Gee-Gees women’s basketball team begins its quest to repeat as OUA North Division champions with an October packed with out-of-conference exhibition games. This weekend will see the team travel to Montreal for a pair of games against the UQAM Citadins.
Ottawa posted a 14-5 regular season record last year, but were stopped short of the OUA Final Four. The team has qualified for the playoffs for each of the last seven seasons under head coach Andy Sparks, and last won the OUA Championship in 2012.
The Gee-Gees defeated UQAM in two exhibition meetings last fall, winning at home by 74-66 and 67-65 scores. The Citadins finished second in the RSEQ regular season standings with an 11-5 record.
