TORONTO (November 25, 2017) - The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks women’s basketball team had their two-game winning streak snapped on Saturday evening as they lost 72-59 to the Ryerson Rams. 

Out-rebounded 55-37, Laurier struggled against the size of Ryerson, and in particular, 6-4 forward Sofia Paska. The fourth-year Etobicoke native led the charge for the Rams, producing 29 points and 15 rebounds. 

The Hawks were paced by Nicole Morrison (Hamilton, Ont.) who led the team in the three most noteworthy categories, finishing with 22 points along with eight rebounds and four assists. The fifth-year guard was lights out from the foul-line, knocking down all ten of her attempts and continues to sit second in conference scoring, averaging 20.2 points per game.

Laurier’s second leading scorer was Brianna Iannazzo (Thornhill, Ont.) who chipped in with 10 points, including two made threes. 

The loss drops Laurier to 5-4 on the season while Ryerson improves to 6-2.

The Hawks have one game remaining before the fall exam break, set for next Friday at the Athletic Complex. The Waterloo Warriors will make the short trip down the road for a 6 p.m. tip as a part of the Battle of Waterloo series.

Tickets for the game, which is also the Hawks annual Shoot for the Cure fundraising night, can be purchased at tickets.laurierathletics.com. The contest can also be seen live on OUA.tv.
