The Stingers women’s basketball team have now won six straight games after sweeping a home and home series versus the Bishop’s Gaiters.

After winning Friday by a score of 55-49 on the road, the Stingers beat the Gaiters at home Saturday by a score of 68-41.

Despite trailing for most of their game on Friday, and shooting almost 31% from the field on Saturday, the Stingers did enough to secure victories this past weekend. The Bishop’s Gaiters remain winless so far this season, sitting last in the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec Conference at 0-12.

“It doesn’t matter whether you’re playing the top of the league or the bottom of the league,” said Stingers head coach Keith Pruden after Saturday’s game.

“You’ve got to treat every opponent the same way.”

Alex Boudreau had a great weekend for the Stingers, scoring 18 points on Friday night, followed by 14 on Saturday. Marilyse Roy-Viau was also dominant, with 11 points and five rebounds Friday evening, and a double-double on Saturday with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Reigning MVP and All-Canadian Kaylah Barrett sat out Friday night’s game against Bishops, and only played a total of 10 minutes on Saturday afternoon before leaving the game due to discomfort in her back.

Barrett is expected to be healthy in time for the Stingers’ next game against UQAM on Thursday, Feb.13th at 6 p.m. They also round out the weekend against the Laval Rouge et Or Saturday evening at 5 p.m.
