Matthew Thomas Named Week 9 Athlete of the Week

A 6′ guard in his fourth year studying arts at The University of Winnipeg, Matthew Thomas is an MCAC Athlete of the Week for Week 9. In the third game of the University of Winnipeg’s Mens basketball season, Thomas earned himself honours as he helped the Wesmen beat the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers, 59-46. Thomas posted 13 points, 5 rebounds, 5 steals and 2 assists and has proven to be invaluable to the Wesmen’s success this season. So far Thomas has shot the ball at a 44% clip averaging nearly 15 points a game, including making all but 2 of his 15 free throws attempted. He also holds the Wesmen’s second-most defensive rebounds on the season despite playing the point. Thomas’ stocky build makes him a relentless defender as well as a very difficult guard to win rebounds and loose balls from.

The Wesmen are currently tied for first place in the MCAC with Providence University College, who they will face next on January 27th.
