(WINDSOR, ON) – The celebration of the 2013-14 women’s basketball season came to a close Saturday evening with the distribution of championship rings to the players and the raising of the CIS banner along side the previous title markers. The Lancers followed up the festivities with a dominating performance over the Guelph Gryphons (1-1) by a score of 76-53, to extend their winning streak to 2 games.
Korissa Williams, the 5th year guard out of General Amherst, led all shooters with 21 points in 37 minutes on the floor. She also added 6 rebounds and dished off 5 times.
Windsor also got strong performances from Jocelyn LaRocque with 17 points and Cheyanne Roger with 10. The Lancers were dangerous from beyond the arc, hitting 1 in every 3 attempts, including 4 from LaRocque herself.
Defensively, Windsor forced 18 turnovers that resulted in 17 points, and the women pulled down 27 boards, in their end of the court, keeping Guelph to just 4 second chance points.
