The PACWEST is proud to announce the basketball Athletes of the Week following Week 4 of the season.
Female Basketball Athlete of the Week
Reiko Ohama – Capilano Blues
Playing against a tough Douglas defence, Ohama was the leading force for the Blues in a pair of big wins over the Royals. In Friday’s contest she tallied 25 points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and had a block. She followed that up the next night with 25 points, nine boards, four assists and a steal. Her overall play helped keep the Blues in front despite a late Douglas push. Attacking from all over the court, she went a combined 21-of-26 from the free throw line and shot 5-of-9 from beyond the arc en route to the 50 total points.
