The Pita Pit Male Athlete Of The Month – January

Congratulations to Matt Warkentin of the Men's Basketball Team on being selected The Pita Pit Male Athlete of the Month for January. The 6'2 second-year guard has taken a big step forward in his sophomore season with the Blazers and his biggest strides came in January when he averaged over 16 points per game.

"From the moment that Matt commited to CMU, almost two years ago, he has been committed himself to hard work," said Warkentin's head coach Billy Isaac, "That effort has translated into a great month where he has been asked to guard our opponent's biggest threats and to care for much of our offense due to numerous injuries this month."

In January, Warkentin broke his career high in scoring three times including a 19 point night last Friday as the Blazers topped the Providence Pilots on home court, 70-61.

Warkentin and the Blazers are back in action on home court on Friday and Saturday when they host the Red River Rebels and University of Winnipeg College Wesmen in MCAC action as CMU presses towards the conference Final Four later this month.
