Diressa, Coleman, Longman Athletes of the Week
This week co-winners were needed for the #DevilishlyGood St. Louis Bar & Grill Male Athlete of the Week.
First up is Manny Diressa (Toronto) from the men's basketball team. Diressa was named the Porter Airlines Player of the Game in the Wilson Cup championship game as the Rams repeated as OUA Champions. Diressa scored 24 points, all in the second half, to lead Ryerson to back-to-back titles. He also added seven rebounds, five assists, and three steals in 36 minutes of play. The night before, the fourth year guard netted 20 points and had three rebounds, three assists, and three steals in the Rams semifinal win over Ottawa. The Rams will now continue their season this week at the U SPORTS Final 8.
Julie Longman (Newmarket, Ont.) is this week's #DevilishlyGood St. Louis Bar & Grill Female Athlete of the Week. The fourth year libero posted 23 digs for an average of 7.67 digs per set in the Rams sweep of Guelph in their quarter-final match. Longman steadied the back row defence all afternoon and helped keep the Rams in system for their offence to be efficient. Longman and the Rams advance to the OUA Final Four next weekend for the second straight year.
All three winners will receive a $25 gift certificate to St. Louis Bar & Grill.
