Ryerson fourth-year student Sofia Paska went into Wednesday night’s matchup against the University of Toronto just four points shy of reaching 1,000 points in her Rams basketball career.
The Ryerson men’s and women’s basketball teams won back-to-back home games over the weekend.
The women’s game against the Waterloo Warriors Friday night marked their fourth win in a row. The game at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (MAC) ended with a blowout score of 79-34 for the Rams.
Ryerson alumnus Aaron Best led the Rams basketball team to a historic Ontario University Athletics (OUA) championship in 2016, and is now making his mark in the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) G League.
The Ryerson men’s basketball team has created many stars over the past few years. Ammanuel Diressa is one of their best.
Diressa is a 6’5” point guard, heading into what will be his final season with the team. He was named an OUA First-Team All-Star last season. After spending a couple of years at Tennessee Tech University, Diressa returned home and transferred to Ryerson to play for the Rams. This will be his third and final season playing for the team.
