Reaves caps Bobcat career in style

Jordan Reaves of the men’s basketball team and Donata Huebert of the women’s volleyball team capped their seasons by being honoured by the Brandon University Bobcats.

The pair were named BU’s male and female athletes of the month for February on Thursday afternoon.

For Reaves, it was a fitting end to his career. The fifth-year forward finished his CIS eligibility by averaging 13.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game during Brandon’s five Canada West conference games during the month.

Those numbers were pretty consistent with the statistics he put up during his 100 career games, which ties him for second most played in the program’s history.

“It’s a great honour to finish my career off on a high note, the highest one I guess I can other than playoffs,” said Reaves, who averaged 11.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists for his career. “It’s a great way to finish off my career here knowing that everyone supported me in my final month here and recognized my performance. It really means a lot to be recognized here in my final month as a Bobcat.”

For Huebert, February was a roller-coaster ride. The second-year libero helped the Bobcats make the playoffs for the first time in three years and had 11 and 26 digs in their two playoff matches, but BU couldn’t get past the UBC Okanagan Heat in the quarter-finals.

The month closed out with the German import being named CIS libero of the year and a first-team all-Canadian. Although she would give up those awards to have played in the national championship tournament, Huebert is proud to be recognized.

“I’m just happy that I get the recognition from the program and university, too,” said Huebert, who averaged 4.94 digs per set in her five February matches. “It’s always nice to get recognition, but that’s not something I was looking for, obviously. That’s what I said about the Canada West and CIS awards too: It’s nice, but it’s just the cherry on top.”
