BURLINGTON, Ont. – Mike Rocca has been named Investors Group Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Male Athlete of the Week, powered by 2XU, for the period ending February 20, 2018.
Male Athlete of the Week – Mike Rocca (Sarnia, Ont.) – 5th Year – Windsor Lancers
If there was ever a way to close out your final regular season, Mike Rocca did just that, and in doing so, the Windsor Lancers veteran has been named the OUA Male Athlete of the Week.
Rocca, along with the Lancers as a whole, had a tremendous weekend to close out his five year career in a Windsor jersey. Led by the Sarnia, Ont. native, the Lancers came away with a 91-81 win over the Waterloo Warriors Friday night and followed that up on Saturday with another impressive win, stunning the No.2 Brock Badgers 96-83.
Against the Warriors, who the Lancers will do battle with once again in their first round playoff game, Rocca put up 24 points, went 100% from the free throw line, and rounded out his contributions with 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 6 steals, and a block. He continued his outstanding play against Brock one night later, finishing the game with 27 points on 58% shooting, 5 assists, 3 steals, 4 rebounds, and another flawless night from the charity stripe.
