Our fall exhibition schedule has come to a close with the completion of the Queen’s Tindall Tournament this past weekend with the
Friday we opened with a disappointing loss to
Tournament All-Stars included:
Hanna Sunley-Paisley – Ottawa
Irline Noel – UQAM
Jasmine Douglas – Guelph
Jill Wheat – Queen’s
Brittany Moore – Tournament MVP – Queen’s
Our game against Ottawa was a battle between two hospital wards – we dressed 8 players and Ottawa only 7, due to injuries. It turned out to be a back and forth type of affair with
The Guelph game saw us shoot the ball very well from the 3-point line going 5-11, with four players hitting at least one 3-pointer. A strong fourth quarter helped close out this game (18-9).
Sunday was a very physical battle with UQAM. Three-point shooting was a key factor once again, as we shot 38% from behind the arc. Again four players hit a 3, but Brittany Moore did most of the damage hitting on 5 of her 7 attempts from downtown. Jill Wheat had an excellent weekend, grabbing 25 rebounds and really anchoring our defense.
Our team is continuing to improve. Handling the “runs” that teams take during the course of the game, while improving, still needs much work. Learning to ride-out the momentum shifts is very important for our long-term success.
