Huber athlete of the week

UBC Okanagan Heat co-captain Roz Huber is the BCCAA’s female athlete of the week in women’s basketball.

The third-year forward rang up back-to-back double-doubles in leading the Heat to a pair of home court victories last weekend over the Quest Kermodes. 

Huber has recorded double digits in scoring and rebounds in nine of 18 games this season.

On Friday, the 6-foot Rutland grad scored 18 points and added 18 rebounds in a 76-71 victory.

On Saturday, Huber was at it again with 14 points, 11 rebounds, four steals and two blocked shots as UBCO closed out the regular season with a 78-56 win.

Huber is among the conference’s season leaders in several categories: Seventh in scoring (13.67 points per game), second in rebounding (11.93) and eighth in assists (2.87).

“Roz is one of the hardest working members of the team,” said Heat head coach Heather Semeniuk. “She brings excellent skill, athleticism and speed to our game and her positive leadership on and off the court is outstanding.” 

Huber and the Heat will be at Columbia Bible College in Abbotsford next week for the BCCAA championship. UBCO will open up against Langara in the quarterfinals on Thursday.

The Heat men are also at CBC and will battle the Douglas College Royals on Thursday, March 3.
