The Voyageurs looked to collect their first weekend sweep of the season as they faced off against to the 12-2 University of Ottawa Gee-Gees tonight at the Ben Avery Gymnasium. Despite the Gee-Gees' high ranking, currently holding the 5th spot in Canada, Laurentian hoped to complete another upset like the previous night.
The home team started off strong with a competitive first quarter trading baskets with Ottawa. However, the Gee-Gees sped off in the second, outscoring the Voyageurs 31-5- building a comfortable lead they were able to sustain for the remainder of the game. The downfall for the Voyageurs in this pivotal quarter was shooting percentage, as they shot just 9.1% from the field compared to the Gee Gees 66.7%.
This second quarter surge ultimately secured the win for the Gee-Gees with a final score of 86-61.
Leading scorer for Ottawa was Brigitte Lefebvre-Okankwu with 23 points.
Laurentian will have a week to reconvene and prepare for next weekend's double header, when they'll visit the Ryerson Rams and the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.
