In light of the 2020 CCAA Men's and Women's National Basketball Championships being canceled this week due to COVID-19. The CCAA announce the national awards winners on Wednesday morning. NAIT Ooks' Sydney Hurlburt (women's basketball) and Sean-Michael Clancey were named CCAA All-Canadian.
In her final year of eligibility, Hurlburt ranked among ACAC leaders with 15.3 points per game and shot 38.5% from three-point range. She ends her collegiate career as the Ooks' all-time leader in both games played and three-pointers. Hurlburt is a fierce competitor and thoughtful leader who makes everyone around her better. She has been an ideal ambassador at NAIT and the heart and soul of the Ooks women's basketball program for the past five seasons.
Clancey is a gifted offensive player who dominates all over the court. He led the ACAC with 26.6 points per game and ranked among conference leaders with 9.5 rebounds per game as well as 61 steals. The dynamic third-year guard also averaged four assists per game and led NAIT to a third-place finish in the ACAC North Division with a 14-10 record. Clancey put the Ooks on his back at the ACAC Championships, where NAIT ousted first-place Lethbridge in the quarter-finals.
