Browne top Canadian

Basketball scoring champion Jenine Browne of the Memorial University of Newfoundland Sea-Hawks was named Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) athlete of the week for the period ending Jan. 18.

The fourth year kinesiology student from St. Bride’s, scored 55 points in leading the No. 5-ranked Sea-Hawks to a pair of road-wins over the St. Francis Xavier X-Women. On Saturday, Ms. Browne collected a solid 17 points, seven rebounds and five steals in a 60-41 victory. On Sunday afternoon she exploded with a 38-point performance, this time in a 85-55 win. Her 38 points mark an Atlantic University Sport season-high and ties her own school-record for a single game.

The CIS scoring champion in the last two seasons, Ms. Browne leads the nation again this year with a 24 points per game average. She is also third in her conference in steals, fifth in field goal percentage and has scored 20 or more points in six of Memorial’s eight regular-season games.

The two wins were crucial for the Sea-Hawks (7-1) as they get set to host division-rival Dalhousie (6-3) for a doubleheader in St. John’s (January 24-25). Memorial leads Dalhousie by two points (14-12) atop the AUS Baldwin division, with one game in hand.

Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) is the national governing body of university sport in Canada. Fifty member schools, over 10,000 student-athletes and 550 coaches vie for 19 National Championships in 11 different sports.
