Lancer named all-Canadian in men’s basketball

Canadian Interuniversity Sport announced Wednesday it had named Lancer power forward Lien Phillip a men’s basketball second team all-Canadian.

Head coach Chris Oliver praised Phillip’s contributions.

“This season, Lien became our leader and the best player on our nationally-ranked team. The level of excellence and the consistency at which he has scored and rebounded this year in my mind puts him on par with any player in the country,” he said. “Additionally, Lien is a tremendous presence on defence where he blocks, rebounds and changes shots with his activity and length.”

Over the 2012/13 season, Phillip averaged 15 points and 10.6 rebounds per game, helping Windsor finish in first place in the Ontario University Athletics west division. He was named the division’s player of the year and a first team all-star.
