Women's Basketball Update

Hi Folks,

Happy New Year! I hope you and your family had a great holiday season.

Have to be really quick with this newsletter, as we just returned from Puerto Rico last night and I am scrambling to catch up on a number of things that came in over the holidays.

Team had a GREAT trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico (temperature highs 28, lows 24 everyday) taking in some cultural events with a visit to Old San Juan, Zip-lining in the forest, and of course, time on the beach. We trained each morning and played two games (all open air facilities, so it was a tad warm). We lost both games to the NCAA Div. II Puerto Rican teams (by 2 points and by 6 points), as we worked through the 3 week layoff prior to our departure. We did improve our ball handling and our defense over the two games, but did struggle with our shooting in both games.

Up Next at Home:
Saturday, January 5 vs. Toronto 1pm (Community Day – kids get in free)
Sunday, January 6 vs. Ryerson 1pm

Thursday, January 10 vs. York 5pm (Shoot for the Cure – Breast Cancer Awareness)
Saturday, January 12 vs. Laurentian 6pm

NOTE the different start times for some of the games!

That’s it for now – will have the weekend game reports out on Monday.
