Cameron, Coward get nod from Horns

Pronghorns basketball players Ali Cameron and Dominyc Coward earned the Subway Pronghorn Athletes of the Week nods after their efforts against UBC Thunderbirds and Victoria Vikes over the weekend.

Cameron, a first-year Pronghorn and former SAIT Trojan, came off the bench and played her role to a tee, providing a defensive spark for the 'Horns.

Playing two of the top teams in the conference, Cameron and the 'Horns held the conference's top offensive unit Victoria Vikes well under their season average of 80 points. They also held the UBC Thunderbirds right at their season average.

Coward, a former CCCA All-Canadian with Lethbridge College, has contributed immediately to the Pronghorn men's basketball team and has been a key component in the 'Horns' 4-4 start to the season.

Friday night, in a 90-80 upset of the CIS fourth-ranked UBC Thunderbirds, Coward had 14 points, nine rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

In the 'Horns' loss to the undefeated Victoria Vikes the following night, Coward narrowly missed recording a double-double with 13 points and eight rebounds.

With the first semester coming to a close for the men's basketball team, Coward is second on the team in points per game, averaging 13.6, and leads the team in rebounding with 7.9 boards a night. He is second in the conference in blocked shots, averaging just under two per game.
