Nembhard, Crozon Named Toyota Canada Players of the Week

TORONTO, Ontario (May 8, 2024) - Andrew Nembhard and Paige Crozon have been named the Toyota Canada Players of the Week for May 6-10.

Last week, the Indiana Pacers made history by making it to the second round of the NBA Playoffs for the first time in a decade. Now in a close series against the New York Knicks, the Pacers look to level up the series and continue their stellar run. Canada’s Andrew Nembhard has been a constant presence in the Pacers’ success, putting up 11 or more points in their last six playoff games. Nembhard helped propel the Pacers over the Milwaukee Bucks over the previous week, averaging 12 points, four rebounds, and four assists.

The Canadian 3x3 Senior Women’s National Team (SWNT) started the 2024 FIBA 3x3 Women’s Series as back-to-back champions, completing an undefeated Springfield Stop. Last week, the team travelled to Utsunomiya, Tochigi Prefecture, Japan, hoping to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. Although the team fell just short of a spot in the final, the team will have another chance to qualify later this month. Paige Crozon was a steady presence for the 3x3 team, finishing first in the tournament and leading all players with 6.6 points per game, shooting 44.7 percent from the field.
