Carleton Ravens forward Grant Shephard has been named U SPORTS Men's Basketball Player of the Week
Shephard (Kelowna, B.C.) helped the top-ranked Carleton Ravens kick off 2023 in a big way as he recorded 44 points and 23 rebounds in two games. On Friday, in an 80-71 win at Waterloo, the 6-foot-10 centre tied his season high with 25 points and collected seven rebounds. On Saturday, he picked up a double-double as he notched 19 points and grabbed 16 rebounds – 11 off the defensive glass – as the Ravens completed the weekend sweep with a 92-80 win over the Laurier Golden Hawks.
The Ravens return to action this week with a pair of interdivisional games, as they host Ontario Tech on Friday and Guelph on Saturday.
