Nicholson and Mukama named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is JV Mukama (Hamilton, Ont.) of the men's basketball team. The fifth year guard dropped two of his best performances against two of the best teams this weekend. On Friday night Mukama netted 24 points and pulled in 11 rebounds to lead the Rams to a win over No. 6 Ottawa. The next night, Mukama played all 40 minutes and scored 25 points while adding five rebounds, three assists, and two steals as Ryerson handed No. 1 Carleton their first loss this season. Mukama hit a three-pointer with 30 seconds to play on Saturday to give Ryerson the lead which they defended until the final buzzer to defeat the Ravens.
Lauren Nicholson (Dresden, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. The third year forward keeps producing for the Rams women's hockey team, netting two goals and an assist this week. Her overtime goal on Friday lifted Ryerson to a win over Waterloo, while her goal against Brock tied the game and sent it to overtime on Saturday. Nicholson now has 12 goals on the season which is a new single-season record at Ryerson. Her 19 total points this year rank fourth in the OUA while her 12 tallies is good for third in the league.
