Lee, Graham named OUA Athletes of the Week

BURLINGTON, Ont. - The following athletes have been named Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Athletes of the Week for the period ending November 23rd, 2015.

FEMALE: Megan Lee (Orillia, Ont.) – 5th yr. – York Lions – Women's Hockey

York Lions goaltender Megan Lee (Orillia, Ont.) was unbeatable this weekend turning aside all 68 shots she faced.

On Saturday, Lee, a fifth-year kinesiology and health science student-athlete, stopped all 25 shots in a 4-0 victory over the crosstown rival Ryerson Rams.

Against the No. 2 nationally ranked University of Toronto Varsity Blues, Lee was back at it once again on Sunday, stopping all 39 shots in regulation, another four in overtime and both shooters in the shootout as the Lions escaped with a 1-0 win.

With her perfect weekend between the pipes, Lee's save percentage now sits at .937, which ties her for eighth in OUA.

Lee and the Lions will return to the ice on Friday night when they host the UOIT Ridgebacks.

MALE: Tanner Graham (Kingston, Ont.) – 2nd yr – Queen's Gaels – Men's Basketball

The Queen’s Gaels split their weekend series against two nationally ranked teams thanks in large part to the performance of guard/forward Tanner Graham (Kingston, Ont.).

Graham and the Gaels hosted the No. 9 ranked McMaster Marauders on Friday night with the second-year kinesiology student-athlete finishing with a game high 21 points (9-16 FG).  He also added eight rebounds (6 defensive / 2 offensive), four blocks and an assist in 35 minutes of play as the Gaels fell to the Marauders 84-71.

On Saturday, the 6-foot-7 standout had 17 points (5-10 FG), five rebounds (4 defensive / 1 offensive), three assists and one block in 33 minutes of play as Queen’s handed the No. 4 Brock Badgers their first loss of the season.

Graham and the 4-1 Gaels will be back on the court Friday as head to Waterloo, Ont. to take on the Laurier Golden Hawks.
