Genesee Community College men's basketball guard Alex Morris and women's basketball center/forward Breana Gleaton have been named the GCC Athletes of the Week for the week of February 24th.
Morris helped the GCC men's basketball team to a win over #10 Monroe Community College last week, locking up the No. 3 seed in the Region III playoffs for the Cougars.
He came off the bench to score a game-high 24 points on 8-12 shooting from the field and hit a pair of game-winning free-throws with 2.2 seconds left in the game. He also grabbed nine rebounds in the contest.
The Cougars will host Jamestown Community College on Tuesday night in the first round of the Region III playoffs.
Gleaton delivered a strong performance for the GCC women's basketball team in the final game of the regular season last week.
She collected eight rebounds, scored seven points, had two steals and a blocked shot against Monroe Community College.
The Cougars will now enter the Region III playoffs and travel to Mercyhurst North East for their first round game on Wednesday night.
