As her Gee-Gees career comes to an end, McAlear-Fanus established a new team record for assists in a career – 424. She surpassed the one hundred assist mark in each of the last three seasons with a career high of 135 this season.

In addition to her scoring and assists, she also set career highs in field goal percentage (40.8) and three-point percen-tage (33.8).

Defensively, McAlear-Fanus was fifth in the conference in steals per game at 2.1, and set a career high with 6.8 rebounds per game. She also recorded Gee-Gee’s first ever triple-double with 19 points, 13 assists, and 10 rebounds on Jan. 18 against Ontario Tech at Montpetit Hall.

Unfortunately, the Gee-Gees hopes of reaching the CIS U-Sports Final 8 came to a premature end when they lost to the Ryerson Rams in the OUA semi-final.
