Former St. Matthew Tiger Brooklynn McAlear-Fanus became only the third Ottawa Gee-Gee female basketball player to receive All-Canadian honours last month when she was named to the Second Team of All Canadians for 2019-2020.

The fifth-year Gee-Gees point guard led the nation in assists this past season and was a First Team OUA All-Star for the second year in a row. She ranked eighth in the league in scoring with 15.8 points per game in addition to her nation-leading 6.8 assists per game.

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.

As the team's point guard and ball distributer, McAlear-Fanus was instrumental in her team setting a new school record of 78.5 points per game.

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.

McAlear-Fanus’s ball distribution abilities allowed the Gee-Gees to lead the OUA in field goal percentage, and score a team record 78.5 points per game. The Gee-Gees, with final regular season record of 18-4.

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.
