Brittany produced the tying 3 pointer in regulation to send the teams into overtime.  Brittany scored 20 points in the game and hauled down 17 boards and also added 2 assists.

Brittany comes to VIU after playing at the University of Calgary last year.  She is extremely versatile being able to play inside and outside.  She has a nice shooting touch and great moves in the low post. She will be counted to provide the Mariners with big scoring and rebounding for throughout the year.
