Fischer a big part of Lambton’s early success
Brett Fischer is what basketball purists call a glue player. She does anything and everything to help her team win.
After spending the past four years at Western University putting together a solid career for the women’s basketball team, the Wallaceburg native transferred to Lambton College for her last year of eligibility to reunite with her high school coach Janine Day.
So far the six-foot forward is having a strong start to her season at Lambton, as the team is 4-0 so far in OCAA play.
Fischer is a big part of that success. Fischer has been a double-double machine so far the year, averaging 12.5 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. She leads the team with six blocks.
She was named the Lambton College female athlete of the week two weeks ago.
Lambton College is ranked 10th in the country in the recently released Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) women’s basketball rankings.
As her career has unfolded, Fischer has developed her game in various aspects to make her a more versatile threat, especially on offense. She has added a three-point shot to her repertoire, allowing her to stretch the floor on offense which, in turn, helps to create more opportunities for herself and her teammates.
“I think that I’m a diverse player,” said Fischer in a Lambton College statement when she signed with the team.
“Towards the end of my career at Western, I started to venture out more towards the three, so it makes my game a bit more diverse.”
Lambton will host St. Clair College on Saturday at 2 p.m.
