Alex Roth and Roslyn Huber were instrumental in leading their respective teams to home court sweeps of the Langara Falcons last weekend.

As a result, the UBC Okanagan Heat veterans have been named athletes of the week in the BCCAA basketball.

Roth, a fourth-year guard, scored a total of 29 points, added 16 rebounds and seven assists as the Heat men beat the Falcons 68-61 on Friday and 70-61 on Saturday at the UBCO gym to push their season record to 10-3.

“(Alex) is our point guard and he is a team captain. I expect him to lead this team and he likes the challenge of being a leader,” said Heat assistant coach Cary Mellon.

“He isn’t a vocal leader but he will take charge out there on the court, he comes from a strong basketball family, and he plays the game very cerebrally.

“You can tell they have had many a conversation around the dinner table about basketball in the Roth house.”

Huber was a key player in both Heat victories over Langara.

The third-year post/forward pulled down 15 rebounds on Friday, and added 14 points, four assists and three steals in a 80-47 victory.

On Saturday, Huber ramped her game up a notch with 22 points, 17 rebounds, five blocks and three steals as UBCO rolled to its sixth straight win, 78-47.

“As a third year forward and co-captain, Roz leads her team in rebounding and is currently second in the BCCAA,” said Heat coach Heather Semeniuk.

“Her athleticism is a huge plus for the Heat as she not only has the leaping ability but also is able to run with our guards in the transition game.

“Roz’s dedication to improvement and to being in top physical condition has set her apart as a premier athlete on the UBC Okanagan’s women’s team.”

Both Heat teams are in Nanaimo this weekend for two games against the Vancouver Island Mariners.
