After a Cinderella 2011-12 season that saw them upset the top regular season team in the basketball semifinals, the Providence Lady Freemen women’s basketball squad is now out to prove that their success last year was no fluke.
Starting their season in Week 10, the Lady Freemen had a huge statement win over CMU, doubling up the Blazers in an 82-41 win on Nov. 14. Leading the way was their second-year guard Genadyne Charr, who put up 19 points and snagged nine rebounds in the win.
“Genadyne is a strong defensive player with a great understanding of the game,” said Providence head coach Joel Coursey. “She is a leader both on and off the court in basketball and her faith. She had a strong game on Wednesday night and we will look to her to contribute offensively this week.”
For Providence, Nov. 14 was their first win by over 40 points since a Jan. 28, 2011 win over Assiniboine Community College. On Nov. 21, CMU and Providence will meet again for a rematch, this time at the Blazers home court.
The 20-year-old Charr, who stands 5’6”, is a graduate of Fort Richmond Collegiate and is working toward a degree in business.
