TheBishop’s Univer­sity Depart­ment of Ath­let­ics and Recre­ation is pleased to an­nounce that for the third time this sea­son Kyle Des­marais of the men’s bas­ket­ball team has been named this week’s Provigo, Robert La­fond Ath­lete of the Week. Des­marais, a fifth-year trans­fer stu­dent scored 19 points on 6-for-11 shoot­ing as the Gaiters fell 78-71 to the McGill Red­men on Thurs­day night in Mon­treal. He had five re­bounds and six steals in 36 min­utes of play. He scored 20 points on 7-for-12 shoot­ing in Bishop’s 62-59 loss to McGill at home on Satur­day night. He added a steal, six as­sists and seven re­bounds in 39 min­utes to round out his stat line. The 6-foot-2 Mon­treal na­tive is a for­mer three-time RSEQ all-star dur­ing his time at Con­cor­dia. Des­marais sits in sec­ond place in the RSEQ in scor­ing av­er­ag­ing 15.6 points per game. The 2010-11 RSEQ Most Valu­able Player is also sec­ond in min­utes played av­er­ag­ing 34.0 through five con­tests.

Des­marais and the Gaiters (3-3) sit third in the RSEQ stand­ings. They re­turn to RSEQ ac­tion this week on Thurs­day night in Mon­treal and on Satur­day night at home both against Con­cor­dia (1-3). Bishop’s will ul­ti­mately look to claim an RSEQ Cham­pi­onship and re­turn to the CIS Fi­nal-8 for the first time since 1999 in March. They will have home court ad­van­tage in do­ing so as Bishop’s will host the sec­ond an­nual RSEQ Fi­nal-4 from March 5-7, 2015 in Mitchell Gym­na­sium. Hon­ourable Men­tion
