Just one game to report on this time around, as we closed out our regular season with a game against our cross-town rivals, RMC. Thanks to a 27 point out-pouring from Brittany Moore, we extended our current win streak to 4 games with a 75-56 win. While the final score had a 19 point spread, RMC gave us a good scare in the fourth quarter as they collapsed our 20 point lead to 4 points, before a couple of 3-pointers by Moore and Liz Boag late in the game re-established the comfortable lead.
We finish the season in fifth place and will head to Toronto to take on Ryerson in the quarter-final match up. The game is set for Wednesday, February 23 at 6pm.
Also of note: The University of Toronto captured first place in the division and will be hosting the East Final 4 on Saturday/Sunday, February 26/27 -- game times tba.
Have a great Family Day.
