Bin-Edward and Custovic named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Mirza Custovic (Toronto) of the men's soccer team. A two goal performance in the OUA quarter-final lands Custovic as the Athlete of the Week. The first year striker opened the scoring in the Rams' first postseason game, giving Ryerson a 1-0 lead over Toronto on Sunday night. Needing extra time to decide a winner, Custovic scored again in the 96th minute to make the score 3-1, providing some insurance for the Rams. The win sends Ryerson back to the Final Four for the sixth straight year.
Jama Bin-Edward (Waterloo, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. Bin-Edward looked in midseason form in Ryerson's season opener this past Friday. Offensively, Bin-Edward scored 13 points and added two assists. At the defensive end, Bin-Edward collected a team-high nine rebounds and three steals. The second year guard did all this in just 22 minutes of play to help the Rams beat their crosstown rivals from Toronto by 30 points.
Both student-athletes will receive a $20 gift certificate to Salad King.
