Andrew Wiggins and Cassandre Prosper Named Toyota Canada Players of the Week for May 16-22

Cassandre Prosper and Andrew Wiggins have been selected as the Toyota Players of the Week for May 16-22.

Prosper was one of four Canadian athletes selected to take part in the NBA Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Camp in San Luis Potosi, Mexico from May 16-19. Following the three-day event, Prosper was named MVP among 64 girls competing in the camp, including fellow Canadians Toby Fournier, Ajok Madol, and Delaney Gibb. The 6’2” forward from Rosemere, QC currently attends Capital Courts Academy and has most recently represented Team Canada at the FIBA U16 Women’s Americas and attended the Senior Women’s National Team training camp this past November. Prosper is set to attend FIBA U18 Americas Camp later this week in Toronto, ON ahead of the FIBA U18 Americas Championship in Argentina this month.

Wiggins has been a key part of the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, averaging 21 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists in their first three games, going up 3-0 in the series. Wiggins, being one of the team’s most versatile two-way players, the 6’7” forward has been tremendous on the defensive end while hitting an efficient 39% from three-point range. For the first time in his NBA career, Wiggins was not only named an NBA All-Star, but was also voted to the All-Star starting lineup by way of fans, current players, and media member votes. The Vaughan, ON native has represented Canada several times, most recently last summer at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament 2020 in Victoria, BC.
