Athletes of the Week
Jordon McDonald - Men's Basketball
Jordon McDonald (Mississauga) of the men's basketball program has been named the Niagara College Male Athlete of the Week after his strong performance against the St. Clair Saints on Sunday afternoon.
Playing 31 minutes in the Knights 103-90 victory of the Saints, McDonald had a season high 21 points thanks to an incredible shooting performance in which he shot 66.7% (10-15) from the field. Adding to his impressive offensive numbers was how well the 6'3" forward out if Mississauga rebounded as he put up 15 rebounds which matches his season high.
This marked the second straight game in which McDonald has had 15 rebounds, a big reason why the Knights have started the second-half of the season 2-0. His back-to-back strong performances on the glass have also moved him into the OCAA's third spot in rebounds per game with 10.8.
