1. King’s Christian have fallen in the semi-finals in back-to-back seasons, but are still looking to get over the hump for an OSBA Finals appearance and championship.
2. New recruits, Alexis Stewart and Tahmala Thorpe will make an immediate impact this season and could be the missing pieces of the puzzle for King’s Christian.
3. Last year, King’s Christian finished third with an impressive 13-5 (win-loss) record in the regular season.
WOMEN ON THE SPOT
Mide Oriyomi is a 6’0’’ guard/forward who is looking to establish herself again this season as one of the toughest players to defend in the league and a Team Ontario veteran. Oriyomi has been a “gym rat” over the past summer, and determined to lead her team past the semi-finals.
Tiena Neale is a 5’11’ senior guard who will be heavily relied upon to defend the top players on a nightly basis as well as being a primary scoring option on the offensive end. Neale will be one of the key players on the roster for the team's success.
King’s Christian Collegiate comes into the season with high expectation once again. After failing to advance past the semi-finals in consecutive seasons, King’s Christian is looking to make a run at the OSBA title. The squad from Oakville has all the tools to challenge for the 2018-19 championship: playoff experience, solid outside shooting and players that can get to the basket. Laeticia Amihere also hopes to be back to 100% this season after suffering a season-ending knee injury last year, and the new additions Alexis Stewart and Tahmala Thorpe could be instrumental in Kings' first finals appearance. Could this be the year King’s Christian finally comes through when the pressure is the highest?
