uOttawa athlete of the week

Emilie Morasse, Gee-Gees women’s basketball

The second-year guard had weekend totals of 35 points, 13 rebounds and six steals in helping Gee-Gees women’s basketball record season-ending consecutive home wins over RMC and Queen’s to secure a home playoff berth for the first time in four seasons.

Morasse, from Quebec City and a uOttawa psychology student, scored 24 points with five rebounds and three steals in Friday’s 65-33 win over the Paladins before recording 11 points, eight rebounds and three steals the next night - a 70-59 win over Queen’s to lock up second-placed in the OUA East with a 15-7 record off a 3-19 team finish last year.
