Women's Basketball - Game Report

Hi Folks,
Just one game to report on this week as we opened league play at home against York.  We start the season ranked 12th in the country.
Queen’s 64 – York 47
This was very much a game of inconsistencies.  We opened the game on a tear, scoring 8 points on our first 3 possessions in just over 1 minute of clock time, to lead 8-0.  Then we went 6 minutes without scoring, before dropping another 9 points in the last 2 minutes of the quarter to lead 17-10 after the first.  Our floor shooting was a dismal 27%, although we were 2-5 from the 3 point line.  The second quarter was much the same as the first – our shooting improving marginally to 32% to build a 33-21 half time lead.  The third and fourth quarters saw little change in the style or consistency of play as we outscored York 16-13 in the third and 15-13 in the fourth to finish with the 64-47 win.  Our shooting percentage finished at a poor 32%, although our 3-point shooting was fine at 38%.  Jenny Wright finished with 15 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists.  Abby Dixon had 12 points, 7 steals and 3 assists.  Robyn Pearson had 13 boards and 9 points.  One very positive note, we had 16 assists on our 24 made field goals.
Q’s SID Report:
McLean’s magazine survey:  Queen’s Ranks 1st in student satisfaction 
Queen’s leads in student satisfaction among Canada’s medical-doctoral universities according to Maclean’s 2016 university rankings.
Results from a student satisfaction survey are a new part of the Maclean’s rankings this year. Queen’s ranked among the top three in all of the survey’s categories, including satisfaction with course instructors, extracurricular activities, mental health services, and residence living, as well as administrative and student life staff.
ID/Training Camp – Sunday, November 29th
On court sessions will be from 9:30-11:45am and again from 1:30-3:30pm.  During the break in between, we will conduct a facility tour and a question and answer session (for players and parents).  The camp is designed for players in Grade 10-12 that may be interested in Queen’s as a university destination.  There is no charge for the camp, but please drop me an email so I can keep track of the numbers.
