Top 10 Performers: 2011-12 BasketballBuzz CIS Men’s Basketball Week 1

Keeping up with our weekly tradition which began last year. We look back at the Top 5 Performers from the opening week of the 2011-12 CIS Men’s Basketball 50th anniversary campaign.

Justin King – Thompson Rivers Wolpack – CW
The second year guard from Las Vegas went to work on the nationally ranked UFV Cascasdes. King was all over the floor in the season opener with 20 points and game-high sixteen rebounds. The next evening he notched another double-double with 32 points and ten rebounds as the Wolfpack earned a series split at home. Expect to see King’s name here a few more times as the season continues.

Kyle Coston – Trinity Western Spartans – CW
Don’t blame Coston for the Spartans slow start. Kyle kept the Spartans competitive in two games against Victoria Vikes and should continue to be amongst the top scorers and household name in the weekly top performers.

Nov 4. vs. Victoria Vikes, L, 93-79: 20 points (6/16 FG, 2/7 3FG, 6/6 FT) 4 rebounds
Nov 5. vs. Victoria Vikes, L, 86-75: 27 Points (9/20 FG, 4/7 3FG, 5/6 FT) 9 rebounds, 3 blocks

Ryan Mackinnon – Victoria Vikes – CW
Was nearly perfect in the first-half of the Canada West opener, Mackinnon canned 6-of-7 three-pointers on his way to a game-high 28 points. Was held slightly in check the next evening but managed to score 17 points as the Vikes stole two key games on the Spartans home floor.
