Purple and white success

This past weekend, the Western women's basketball team played host to their annual Purple and White Tournament and in very convincing fashion came away with the hardware.

The team rather handily beat their opponents, by scores of 74-52 over Ryerson, 64-46 over Windsor and 76-58 over Carleton.

Such a successful weekend was very satisfying for head coach Bob Delaney.

"I was very pleased with the way the team played as we had a great contribution from everyone," he said. "We started on Friday with a very intense, high-level of play and we were able to maintain it all the way through Sunday."

The coach is not anticipating such a smooth ride for the entire season, as he doesn't consider last weekend's competition to be the major contenders in this year's regular season play.

The Mustang team has the necessary talent, but needs some of the younger players to step up and take leadership rules, Delaney said.

"We've got a lot of skill throughout the team and have had an outstanding addition in Alana Juzenas as a point-guard. We've got a very young team though as our are oldest players are only in third-year. This means the team is going to need people to step up into leadership positions and that's where we look to our co-captains and returning players," Delaney said.

The team begins regular season play at home against Ryerson on Nov. 9 at Alumni Hall.
