Jenna Gilbert – women’s basketball

Third-year forward Jenna Gilbert, Ottawa, Ont., had a breakout performance for the Gee-Gees this past week on Ottawa’s biggest basketball event: the Capital Hoops Classic. While nursing a sore elbow and listed as doubtful before the game, the Ottawa-native provided some clutch shooting down the stretch to lead her team into double overtime versus the No. 4 Carleton Ravens. Although the garnet and grey would go on to lose the Classic, Gilbert finished with 19 points and 7 rebounds to lead all scorers. On Friday night, she would put forth another solid effort in a 65-47 win over Queen’s, and finishing with 14 points, and 3 rebounds. Finally, Gilbert earned a rest and did not dress Saturday night as the Gee-Gees cruised to a 95-39 victory over RMC.
