UNBC T-Wolves second year guard Maria Mongomo has cracked the Canada West All-Star Team. She has been selected to the 2nd team all-star squad for her tremendous season. Mongomo averaged 16.1 points per game and was in the Canada West top ten for points, assists, rebounds, and steals. This is the first time in history a UNBC Women’s athlete has been selected to a Canada West All-Star team.
“This is crazy, it’s a big surprise. I can’t believe it.” Mongomo then deflected the attention away from herself, “This is a team sport and that connection of working everyday together, travelling together, practicing together. You create somthing together. They should know that without them, this award wouldn’t go to me.”
The honor comes after making the Canada West All-Rookie Team last season.
