Faith Hezekiah's big numbers this weekend helped the Wesmen women's basketball team to a 2-1 record at its own tournament and earned her the Birchwood Auto Group Wesmen Female Athlete of the Week.
The fourth-year forward from East St. Paul, Man., posted three straight double-doubles to start the non-conference season as the Wesmen won two out of three at the BOB-FM Shootout at the Duckworth Centre.
Hezekiah, who was named a third-team all-conference last season and will be looked upon as a go-to player for the Wesmen in 2018-19, opened the tournament with a 27-point, 17-rebound effort in a win against the Brandon Bobcats on Friday. She followed that with 14 and 15 in a loss to Lakehead on Saturday, and capped off the weekend with 23 points and 15 rebounds in a win against Manitoba.
For the weekend, Hezekiah averaged 21.7 points and 15.3 rebounds per contest and was named a tournament all-star
