Congratulations to Riley Ens, second-year forward for the CMU Blazers men’s basketball team, who is our male athlete of the week!
Ens was the Blazers (6-6) top scorer in their home-and-home series with the Providence Pilots (5-11) this past weekend. He put up a monster 29-13-6 stat line in the Blazers 98-91 win on Friday and followed up his performance with 19 points and 12 rebounds in their 80-74 win on Saturday.
“Since the break, Riley has really stepped up his game,” said Blazers head coach Billy Isaac. “He is scoring in multiple ways, rebounding on both ends of the floor, and deflecting passes while playing defense.”
The Blazers have one last regular season series as they host the undefeated Sisseton Wahpeton College Mustangs (9-0) at 7PM on Friday, February 1 and 12PM on Saturday, February 2.
Following this weekend, the Blazers and Pilots will meet again next week on Friday, February 8 in the MCAC semifinals at CMU’s Loewen Athletic Centre. Tip off will be at 8PM following the women’s semifinals at 6PM. #BannerSZN
