Canada West’s weekly installment of the three stars of each sport; men, and women were released today. After picking up a pair of wins this weekend over Calgary’s Mount Royal Cougars, UNBC’s lady T-Wolves got some added recognition this morning.
Second year guard out of Spain, Maria Mongomo was recognized as the Women’s basketball third star of the week. Mongomo can do a little bit of everything on the court, and she proved that this weekend. Mongomo had a combined 47 points, and 21 rebounds over the two games. She is ranked 6th, 7th, and 9th in steals, rebounds, and points per game respectively so far this season.
When asked about the honor, Mongomo immediately directed the attention to her teammates. “I’m very proud of it, but I dedicate it to my teammates, because without them it wouldn’t be possible.” She continued. ” We’ve grown a lot since last year, I’ve seen enormous improvement, and as a teammate I’m very proud.”
