Women's Basketball - Game Report

Hi Folks,

We had a bit of a rough weekend as we played 3 very tough teams in the Carleton tournament, beating Memorial by 6 (71-65), losing to UQAM by 9 (65-74) and losing to Carleton by 5 (61-66).  Memorial actually ended up winning the tournament as they won both their other games.  I thought our performance on Friday versus Memorial was so-so, lacking consistency and, at times, sloppy.  Saturday versus UQAM our execution and intensity was very poor – possibly our weakest performance of the year.  On Sunday versus Carleton we had a brutal start to the game, going down 18-2 before beginning to play possibly our best basketball of the weekend.  Liz Boag was selected to the tournament All-Star team after amassing 56 points and 12 assists.

Our next biggest challenge is to get healthy.  We have two players out with concussion (Gemma & Jenny) and numerous others battling the flu.

Queen’s 71 – Memorial 65
Queen’s 65 – UQAM 74
Queen’s 61 – Carleton 66

A reminder, we will be holding our annual ID/Training Camp on Saturday, November 29, 2014.  This is an ideal opportunity for anyone in Grades 11 or 12 to display their talents and receive instruction from the Queen’s coaching staff.  The day’s schedule is as follows:
 9:30-11:45am On-court session
 11:45-12:15pm Lunch break (on own)
 12:15-12:45pm Facility Tour (parent’s welcome)
 12:45-1:30pm Q&A session with Q’s coaches (parent’s welcome)
 1:30-3:30pm On-court session
 There is no cost for the ID/Training Camp – just let me know so that I can prepare for the numbers.
