Fifth-year guard, Josh Gibson-Bascombe (Toronto, Ontario) became the Gee-Gees all time leading scorer on Friday night with a 21 point effort in uOttawa’s 87-76 victory over the Western Mustangs.

Gibson-Bascombe broke Alex McLeod’s record of 1,167 career points that was established in 2007. The graduate of Jarvis Collegiate Institute in Toronto began the season with 1,128 points only 39 shy of McLeod’s lofty plateau.

After picking up 35 points in uOttawa’s first two games of the regular season, Gibson-Bascombe needed just 5 points to break the record in the Gee-Gees home opener against Western.
