Cassie Wiebe – November’s Recovery Spot Athlete Of The Month

Congratulations to Cassie Wiebe of Women's Basketball on being selected the Recovery Spot Female Athlete of the Month for November.

"Tenacious" is probably the best way to describe Wiebe's play on the basketball court. Rarely her team's scoring leader this season, the fourth-year team captain has added big buckets when they're needed, has been the busiest free-throw shooter in the conference and has put every ounce of energy into every minute of play to lead CMU to a perfect record in both the Northern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference through the first half of the 2016-17 season.

"Cassie has been our team leader on and off the court," said head coach Joe Di Curzio, "She has attacked the basket well and has been able to set up her teammates for easy shots."

Wiebe ranks third on her team in scoring, third in total rebounds and first in assists and minutes played. The fourth year point guard's biggest offensive game came on November 9th when the Carmen Collegiate grad scored 15 points with 8 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the Blazers to a 65-33 win over the Providence Pilots.

"Defensively, Cassie has been able to shut our opponents down," added Di Curzio, "she has been relentless in her rebounding and added some big three point shots for us at critical times."

Wiebe and the Blazers displayed their dominance again last weekend to end the first half of their MCAC season with back to back wins over Providence and the Red River Rebels by convincing scores of 76-38 and 70-44 respectively.

Women's Basketball enter the exam and holiday break with a combined NIAC and MCAC record of 11-0. The Blazers begin their second half in Cass Lake, Minnesota where they are scheduled to tip off with the Leech Lake Lakers on January 7th and 8th.
