2013 CCAA Women's Basketball All-Canadians
March 13 2013 - The 2013 CCAA Women's Basketball All-Canadians have been honoured at the 2013 CCAA Women's Basketball National Championship in Truro, N.S.
Each student-athlete is selected by their conference based on their performance and contribution to both their sport and team.
Ashley Bawn, St. Thomas Tommies
The ACAA Player of the Year makes the most of every minute on the court and finds a way to win. She can do it all – run the offence at point, serve a shooting and scoring roll, rebound, steal the ball, and play tough defence.
Corina Bruni, Algoma Thunderbirds
Now a two-time CCAA All-Canadian, Bruni is a fierce competitor who plays with intensity and emotion, laying everything on the floor in every game. Her ability as a playmaker to create and find an open player separates her from others.
Amonda Francis, Douglas Royals
The PACWEST Player of the Year and team co-captain is B.C.’s scoring leader, and ranks second in rebounds. The former BC provincial player has an excellent basketball IQ; she’s highly efficient in both offense and defence, plays all positions and serves as a mentor to team rookies.
Jocelyn Jones, VIU mariners
The former PACWEST Athlete of the Week was ranked first for assists and second for scoring in the B.C. conference. Quiet by nature, she works hard and pushes her teammates to do the same, resulting in a provincial title and berth at the 2013 CCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship.
Lacey Knox, St. Lawrence Kingston Vikings
The OCAA Player of the Year averaged 20.3 points a game, leading the OCAA conference in scoring and three-point field goal percentage. She’s a tremendous student-athlete who works hard both in the classroom and on the court, and pushes her teammates to do the same.
Sara-Jane Marois, Dynamiques de Sainte-Foy
The former junior national player was named tournament MVP at last year’s CCAA national championship when she was still a rookie. She continued to shine this season armed with speed, ball control and a spectacular 3-point shot. She’s a humble player who puts the team’s performance above her own.
Bhreagh Moore, UKC Blue Devils
Moore had an immediate impact when she joined the Blue Devils four years ago. She’s inspired her team on and off the court, plays a key role in every game, and ranks second in the league in scoring.
Kelly O’Hallahan, Grande Prairie Wolves
This team captain is the heart of her squad. She ranked second in the country for scoring with 21.1 points per game and racked up impressive stats in steals and rebounds. She plays hard regardless of the circumstances because she truly enjoys her teammates and loves the sport.
Frédérique Potvin, Vanier Cheetahs
Potvin is an amazing player in what is arguably the CCAA’s strongest conference. The RSEQ Player of the Year and two-time CCAA All-Canadian is also the Cheetahs’ team captain, and led the competitive RSEQ league in both scoring and assists.
Jylisa Williams, Olds Broncos
The ACAC Player of the Year has dominated Alberta’s hard courts, setting an ACAC record for scoring 52 points in 24 minutes, and leading the CCAA in scoring. As a result the Olds Broncos became the highest-scoring team in the ACAC, earned a provincial championship and qualified for the 2013 CCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship, all in the first year of the program.
