The UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Cooper Wilks, from the men’s basketball team.
In his Varsity Reds’ home and regular season debut, Wilks scored 16 points and grabbed five rebounds to lead UNB in an 80-67 win over Acadia.
Added to the roster in advance of the second half of the Atlantic University Sport season, Wilks also contributed two assists and two steals.
“In his brief time with us, Cooper has made an immediate impact with our program,” says Varsity Reds head coach Brent Baker. “His play at both ends of the court gives us an interior presence that we’ll need for the second half of the season.”
Wilks and the Varsity Reds visit Cape Breton Friday and Saturday, for a pair of games against the Capers.
