The UNB Varsity Reds/Valley Graphics Athlete of the Month, for January, is Nicole Esson, from the women’s basketball team.

In seven games, Esson scored 71 points, grabbed 20 rebounds and recorded 13 assists.

With a number of starters dealing with minor injuries, the veteran assumed a greater role with the Varsity Reds in January.

“Nicole is the reason why coaches love veterans,” says Varsity Reds head coach Jeff Speedy. “She has really elevated her level of play with so many of our key players out with injuries. Nic has also used her leadership voice much more, which is also helping us a great deal.”
