The UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Javon Masters, from the men’s basketball team.
Masters was named the Most Valuable Player as the Varsity Reds won the 2017 Eric Garland Tournament, opening the pre-season with a 3-0 record.
In a win over Saint Mary’s on Friday, Masters scored 21 points and had 9 assists.
He scored 31 points in Saturday’s win over UQAM, and recorded a double-double in Sunday’s victory over Cape Breton, scoring 45 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
“Javon continued to show his athleticism, explosiveness and competitiveness that has helped make us so successful,” said Varsity Reds assistant coach Matt Daley. “He controlled the tempo of games and was a force at both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor, especially in late game situations.”
