(HAMILTON, ON) – Ontario University Athletics (OUA) this morning announced the major award winners at the Wilson Cup awards breakfast in Toronto. The defending champions Carleton Ravens collected four of the five major awards in the east, while four schools are featured among the five major awards in the west.
Lien Phillip, a fifth-year power forward from St Mark’s Grenada, had another terrific season for the Windsor Lancers and has been named the OUA West player of the year. He once again established himself as the premier big man in the province. He averaged 16.1 points and 12.7 rebounds per game in helping Windsor finish second overall in the OUA West with a 16-6 record and the No. 7 ranking in the CIS.
This is the second consecutive year that Phillip has been named the OUA West division player of the year. He is without question one of the most talented forwards in Canada, and arguably the most dominant rebounder in the country. This season, he elevated his game even further and finished the regular season with an outstanding 16 double-doubles to lead the OUA and the nation in rebounding.
Phillip will close out his five year Lancer career as the program’s all-time leader in rebounding with an amazing 1,125 career rebounds, and third overall in scoring with 1,338 points.
