Season ends for Lancer basketball; senior players win provincial recognition

It was a bittersweet ending to the season for fans of Lancer basketball, as both men’s and women’s squads were eliminated from the Ontario University Athletics playoffs soon after the announcement the league had honoured fifth-year players Mike Rocca and Emily Prevost.

Rocca received the Ken Shields Award, which recognizes a student-athlete who exhibits outstanding achievement in the areas of basketball, academics, and community involvement. A three-time academic all-Canadian, Rocca averaged 18 points and 7.9 rebounds per game this season. His volunteer service includes a leading role with the men’s basketball read-a-thon program. He also was named a second-team all-star. Read the full story at goLancers.ca.
