Gibb, Keith cap­ture Horn weekly honours


Bas­ket­ball dom­i­nated the Two Guys and a Pizza Place Univer­sity of Leth­bridge Pronghorn Ath­letes of the Week for the week end­ing Jan. 28.

Male ath­lete of the week honours went to Colton Gibb while Katie Keith took the fe­male ath­lete of the week award.

Tasked with slow­ing down the con­fer­ence’s third-lead­ing scorer, Gibb, a sec­ond-year guard, did just that as the Pronghorns men’s bas­ket­ball team split their home-and-home se­ries with the U Sports fourth-ranked Cal­gary Di­nos.

On Thurs­day night in the Pronghorns 91-89 win in over­time, Gibb held Di­nos lead­ing scorer Mambi Di­awara to a sea­son-low 11 points. Di­awara was av­er­ag­ing over 23 points per game this sea­son. Gibb also chipped in of­fen­sively with 12 points and grabbed four re­bounds.

In the re­match in Cal­gary Satur­day, Gibb helped keep Di­awara un­der his sea­son av­er­age again, as he scored 17 points in the Di­nos 97-71 win. The Leth­bridge prod­uct scored five points to go along with six re­bounds and a steal.

Mean­while, de­spite drop­ping both games last week­end, Keith had two solid per­for­mances for the Pronghorn women, com­bin­ing for 20 points, 13 re­bounds, five steals and two as­sists.

The five-foot-11 Leth­bridge prod­uct led Pronghorn scorers Thurs­day with 12 points in a tough 77-45 loss to the Di­nos. Keith also recorded eight re­bounds, an as­sist and a steal.

In Cal­gary Satur­day, Keith picked up eight points, five re­bounds, four steals and an as­sist in the Pronghorns 67-53 loss.

This sea­son, Keith is av­er­ag­ing 7.4 points per game and leads the team in re­bounds with 7.1 a night.
