For the second time this season and second time in less than a month the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees knocked off the Queen’s Gaels.
The Gee-Gees defeated Queen’s 81-69 back on January 23 at Montpetit Hall.
On Friday night in Kingston, uOttawa handed the Gaels a 72-59 loss.
It was total team effort as four Gee-Gees hit double digits and uOttawa’s defence was at their best limiting the Gaels to just 23 points in the opening half.
“It was a good win for us especially on the road,” said Dave DeAveiro, Gee-Gees head coach. “Every game on the road in this league is always tough and we came through and executed when we had to. They (Queen’s) came at us in the second half but we kept our composure.”
uOttawa (17-3) is in second place in the OUA East Division just two points behind the Carleton Ravens (18-2). A battle for first place in the division is shaping up for next Saturday, February 21 at the Ravens Nest.
The Gee-Gees are back in action on Saturday afternoon when they face the RMC Paladins (0-19 OUA).Tip-off is set for 3:00 p.m.
