Brandon University Bobcats women’s basketball coach Novell Thomas has looked to Westman to lock up his first recruit for next season.

Thomas, who has guided the Bobcats to a 5-11 record in the Canada West conference — the team’s best record in decades — announced Monday the commitment of Hamiota product Shayna Mathison for the 2014-15 CWUAA season. The 6-foot-2 post player has helped lead the Hamiota Huskies to back-to-back provincial A varsity girls high school basketball titles and also represented Manitoba at the Western Canadian championships and suited up for Team Westman at the 2012 Manitoba Summer Games.

Thomas said he has been following Mathison for a while.

"Shayna’s height at 6-foot-2 and her aggressiveness and drive definitely caught me eye," Thomas stated in a news release. "She ended up enrolling in our Bobcat Basketball Academy, where again I got to see her work ethic and see how she has developed over the past two years, so now I am anxious to see what type of player she will become."

Mathison is coming off an impressive performance for Hamiota at the Neelin Invitational Tournament in Brandon over the weekend, scoring 21, 20, 18 and 17 points to lead the Huskies in four games.

Mathison joins another Hamiota product, freshman guard Keegan Robinson, in joining the Bobcats.

"What we need moving forward is a strong presence at centre," Thomas stated. "Shayna will add depth at that position."
