*“This will be a good test for our team. We are playing two very good teams this weekend. Western presents a completely different style of play from Windsor,” said head coach Dave DeAveiro.

*The Gee-Gees are currently ranked No. 3 in the OUA East.

*Western and Windsor are currently ranked No. 3 and No. 4 respectively in the OUA West.

*The Gee-Gees defeated Windsor 73-59 to in the OUA bronze medal game last year, finishing third overall in the OUA and advancing to the CIS national championships.

*“There is really no added incentive to play Western [after last year’s loss]. We are both two different teams, after each losing key elements from last year’s team,” added DeAveiro.
