TORONTO (U SPORTS)- The Ottawa Gee-Gees are the new team to beat in U SPORTS women’s basketball.
In the final rankings of the season, the Gee-Gees (21-2 / 1-0 playoffs) claimed their first No.1 ranking in program history after eliminating the York Lions in the OUA quarterfinals on Saturday. The change at the top ends Laval’s run (15-1 / 0-0 playoffs) in the pole position dating to the beginning of the season. The Gee-Gees will host No. 6 Lakehead (20-4 / 1-0 playoffs) in the OUA semifinal on Wednesday night, where they can qualify for the U SPORTS Women’s Basketball Final 8 Presented by COMDA.COM at Ryerson next week with a victory.
