MONTREAL -- Nathifa Weekes, a senior guard from Brossard, Que., became the 18th member of the McGill Martlets to reach the 1,000-point plateau with an eight-point performance at the Concordia Reebok women’s basketball tourney, Monday.

Weekes achieved that milestone in her 100th career game but it was all in vain, as McMaster dumped the Martlets 63-47.

McGill (0-2), will play Carleton in a consolation-round game Tuesday at 4 p.m. The Ravens opened the tourney with 10-point loss to Concordia, then rebounded to defeat UNB 55-53, on a last second buzzer beater by sophomore forward Ashleigh Cleary of Kemptville, Ontario.
