Men’s Basketball Travel to the East Coast

Wednesday October 27, 2010

Men’s Basketball (0-0 OUA, 3-2 overall)

vs. St. Mary’s Huskies on October 28, 2010 at 8:00 p.m.

vs. Dalhousie Tigers on October 29, 2010 at 7:00 p.m.

vs. Acadia Axemen on October 30, 2010 at 7:00 p.m.

The Gee-Gees will travel to the East Coast to close out their pre-season action, taking on three top-notch teams in three days.

Select pre-season rankings have all shed St. Mary’s, Dalhousie and Acadia in an excellent light; something which Head Coach James Derouin is quick to recognize, “The competition is excellent. [This weekend is a] combination of two things for us, not only are we going on the road, which is difficult anytime no matter who you are playing, but we’re going on the road to play three probably top 15 [in the country] teams.”

“There are a lot of challenges on a road trip like this,” continued Derouin, “But the coaches set them up that way intentionally really to put your team through a bit of adversity and a bit of a challenging situation to see how they react and hopefully to prepare them for when a situation like this happens.” 

The Gee-Gees are freshly finished hosting their own pre-season tournament, the Jack Donohue Tournament, where they finished second overall on Sunday.

The Gee-Gees will next be focusing on the opening of their regular season which takes place at home, as they host the Brock Badgers on Friday, November 5 at 8:00 p.m..
