The Dinos women's basketball team kept up their successful pre-season, coming away with a tournament win over weaker eastern Canadian Interuniversity Sport opponents.
The tournament was held at Carleton University from Oct. 20-22 and the Dinos won all three games. Friday saw the lady b-ballasaurs obliterate the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees 74-38, Saturday they ruined the University of Waterloo Warriors 81-43 and then annihilated the Carleton University Ravens 91-52.
Lindsay Maundrell led the team in points with 21 on Saturday, was second on Sunday with 18, and was named tournament MVP for her efforts.
Jane Meadwell and Michelle Wilson were named tournament all-stars.
"It was a great way to finish our pre-season play," commented head coach Shawnee Harle on the team's website. "I was really happy with how we played on the defensive end as we were able to keep our opponents scrambling for 40 minutes. Our pressing and trapping has shown vast improvement and we forced all opponents into frequent turnovers. I am looking forward to the start of league play where we can challenge ourselves against some tough opponents."
The Dinos have an off-weekend as they await the start of the season Fri., Nov. 3 against the University of Victoria Vikes. The first home games for the Dinos come Remembrance Day weekend, Nov. 10-11 at the Jack Simpson Gym against the Simon Fraser University Clan and the Trinity Western University Spartans. Entrance is free with a student ID.
