Alison Keough CIS Female Athlete of the Week

Webby_Women_1CAPERS Women’s Basketball player Alison Keough from Cape Breton University is the ArcelorMittal Dofasco CIS female athlete of the week for the period ending Jan. 31, 2016.

Keough, a third-year science student from Marion Bridge, N.S., averaged 18 points and 12 rebounds per game as she helped the Capers improve to 9-4 in league play thanks to three home wins in six days.

The 20-year-old forward kicked off her remarkable week last Tuesday with a 19-point, 11-rebound double-double in a 69-59 defeat of StFX, added 14 points and nine boards on Saturday in a 94-52 domination of UPEI, and was at her best on Sunday with a spectacular 21-point, 17-rebound effort in a 63-50 victory over these same Panthers.

Keough, an AUS all-star in each of her first two campaigns with Cape Breton, currently ranks fourth in the country in scoring (19.2 points per game) and second in rebounding (10.5 rpg).

Way to go, Alison!
