After their stunning 69-66 win at Canadian Mennonite University a week earlier, the Providence College Freemen traveled to Brandon, Manitoba to take on the new ACC Cougar women’s basketball team. Their matchups on November 5 and 6 were the inaugural basketball games for Assiniboine Community College, and the conference’s hottest player came to show them how things are done in the MCAC.
Week 7 Female Athlete of the Week Sonia Radi put in two more solid performances in conference week 8. The Freemen rolled over the Cougars 90-41 Friday night, and Radi racked up a career high 32 points, along with 14 rebounds and 5 assists.
Radi reached a career high in points (28) the week before against the Blazers, and Freemen assistant coach Graham Bodnar continued to praise the sophomore guard.
“Although she was the recipient of this award just last week, she truly had an even stronger week against ACC,” said Bodnar. “She had some incredible success on the court in our team’s two wins.”
Providence continued their dominance over the upstart Cougar squad in their Saturday game, beating them 78-33. Radi sustained solid play on defence while accumulating 22 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists.
The 3-3 Freemen continue their prolonged road trip as they travel to the University of Winnipeg this week for two matches against the 3-0 ‘College Wesmen.’ Game times are 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 18, and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 20.
