TheBishop’s Univer­sity Depart­ment of Ath­let­ics and Recre­ation is pleased to an­nounce that Ma­jid Naji of the men’s bas­ket­ball team has been named the Provigo Robert Lafond Ath­lete of the Week. Naji, from Lunel, France was in­flu­en­tial in the Gaiters 80-69 win over Laval on Fri­day night. It was a tightly con­tested game as both teams played at a quick pace. Naji, the fourth year for­ward, hit a piv­otal jumper to tie the game at 67 with 4:47 left in the fourth frame. It started a Bishop’s 8-0 run and left the Rouge et Or in their dust. The 6-foot-11 eco­nom­ics stu­dent went 6-for-10 with 13 points and four boards. He also had two blocks on the night.

The un­de­feated Gaiters (3-0) will travel to Mon­treal for a Thurs­day night show­down against McGill (3-0). The bat­tle for first place in the RSEQ will tip at 8 p.m. in Love Com­pe­ti­tion Hall. Hon­ourable Men­tions

Mara Lis Marchizotti (Women’s Bas­ket­ball) – was 5-for-9 with 11 points, 8 re­bounds and 4 blocks in the 62-35 loss to Laval.
