Dylan Ennis and Michelle Plouffe have been named the Toyota Players of the Week for September 13th-19th.

Ennis had a great start to the 2021-22 ACB Season, leading Gran Canaria (Spain) to a win over Fuenlabrada scoring 21 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and adding two blocks and a steal. The 6'2" Brampton, ON native has had a successful professional career in Europe, having been named to the All-EuroCup Second Team in 2019, and to the All-Champions League Second Team the last two seasons. The shooting guard played his freshman year of college basketball at Rice University (NCAA), before transferring to Villanova University (NCAA) where he helped the Wildcats win the Big East championship in 2015. In his final year of eligibility, Ennis transferred to the University of Oregon where he would find his way to the 2017 NCAA Final Four with the Ducks, averaging 10.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists in his final year.  

In Women’s Series 3x3 Bucharest Final, Plouffe led the final tournament in Player Value, Scoring, Highlights and Key Assists leading Team Canada to place second at the international tournament. Plouffe played college ball at the University of Utah (NCAA) where in her rookie year, she led all freshmen in the conference in scoring and was named MWC Freshman of the Year. In the 2014 WNBA draft, the Edmonton native was selected in the second round, 19th overall by the Seattle Storm. Soon after, the 6’4” forward began her professional career signing with Lyon ASVEL Feminin (LFB) in France. Playing a total of 110 games with Team Canada, Plouffe has most notably repped the maple leaf at the 2015 Pan American Games and the 2017 FIBA Women’s AmeriCup, where her team took home the gold at both events. The 28-year-old has also represented Canada at both the 2012 (London) and 2016 (Rio) Olympic Games.
