Scrubb CIS athlete of the year

Richmond’s Philip Scrubb, a fourth-year guard with the Carleton University men’s basketball team, is the Canadian Inter-university men's athlete of the year. He received the Doug Mitchell Award at the annual BLG Awards Monday in Calgary.

Scrubb this season became the first player in history to be named league MVP for the third time. The commerce student, who led Carleton in points (18.6) and assists (4.9) per game during league play, guided the Ravens to an unblemished 22-0 regular campaign and to their fourth CIS title in as many years with the team.

Scrubb was one of eight national nominees to be honoured in Calgary. The one female (St. Mary's University basketball player Jusdtine Colley) and one male winner (Scrubb) will receive a $10,000 post-graduate scholarship, while all finalists will return home with a commemorative gold ring.
