MONTREAL — When the going gets tough, the bigs get going. That could be the new theme song for the McGill University women’s basketball team which put their big guns to good use, Thursday, en route to a 56-51 victory over the visiting UQAM Citadins at Love Competition Hall.
Mariam Sylla and Alex Rusk-Kiss paced the way for the Martlets, who clinched the RSEQ regular season pennant for the fifth consecutive year.
Sylla, a 6-foot-1 power forward scored 13 points and pulled down a game-high 16 rebounds, her seventh “double-double” of the season. Kiss-Rusk, a 6-foot-4 sophomore centre, added 15 points and six boards.
