Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

TheBishop’s Univer­sity De­part­ment of Ath­let­ics and Recre­ation is pleased to an­nounce that bas­ket­ball play­ers Scott Ring and Sab­rina As­selin are the Provigo Robert La­fond Ath­letes of the Week. Both bas­ket­ball teams closed out the home por­tion of their first se­mes­ter sched­ule last Satur­day against Laval.

Ring, a third year busi­ness stu­dent from the na­tion’s cap­i­tal led the Gaiters on Satur­day night in their 74-58 vic­tory over the Laval Rouge et Or. He scored 23 points and added seven as­sists and three steals from the point guard po­si­tion. His big­gest shot came in the form of a buzzer beat­ing three pointer to close out the first half as the Rouge et Or ap­peared to be grab­bing some mo­men­tum. The floor gen­eral raised the tempo of the game ev­ery chance that he got, a plan that ben­e­fited the Gaiters in the early stages. “Scott Ring was fan­tas­tic,” said Gaiters head coach Rod Gilpin.

As­selin, a first year sports stud­ies stu­dent from Re­pentigny, Que­bec played her best game in the pur­ple and sil­ver on Satur­day night. She scored 13 points and grabbed 12 re­bounds off the bench in the Gaiters 80-47 loss to the Laval Rouge et Or. In 20 min­utes of play, she shot 50 per­cent from the floor in­clud­ing a buzzer beat­ing three pointer as the first quar­ter came to a close.

Both Ring and As­selin will be back in ac­tion on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 29th as they take on McGill in Mon­treal. The Lady Gaiters (0-2) and Martlets (1-2) will tipoff at 6 p.m. while the Gaiters men (1-1) will tipoff against the No.4 ranked Red­men (3-0) at 8 p.m. Both games take place in Love Com­pe­ti­tion Hall.
