* After losing both regular season games to the University of Toronto last year, the Gee-Gees defeated them in the OUA East finals to claim their second OUA East title and advance to the OUA championship game.

* The Gee-Gees hold a 5-31 head-to-head record against the Varsity Blues and a 20-18 record against the Rams.

* “These will be two key games,” said assistant head coach Mario Gaetano. “After last weekend, there is basically a one game difference between the top six teams in our conference, so we have to play every game to win.”
