THIS WEEK IN THE CIS

OTTAWA (CIS) – Roxane Hasseni, a volleyball player from the University of Sherbrooke, and Max Allin, a basketball player from Wilfrid Laurier University, are the CIS female and male athletes of the week for the period ending Jan. 13, 2013.

Allin, a fourth-year arts student from Chatham, Ont., averaged a remarkable 35.5 points per contest last week, including a record-breaking performance on Saturday. The 6-foot-4 guard kicked off the Hawks’ two-game set last Wednesday with a 28-point, 10-assist double-double in a 112-92 upset win over No. 8-ranked Windsor. The CIS scoring leader (26.3 ppg) then exploded for a single-game school record 43 points on Saturday in a 94-88 loss to Guelph, including 13-of-20 shooting from the floor, 6-of-10 from three-point range and 11-of-12 from the free throw line.
