Jun 28, 2021

Phil Scrubb and Kayla Alexander have been selected as the Toyota Players of the Week for June 14-20.

In the last game of the season with French team CSP Limoges (LNB), Scrubb scored 16 points and led his team in assists (7), rebounds (2) and steals (2). Scrubb attended Carleton University (U SPORTS) where he had arguably one of the most successful intercollegiate careers in Canadian history, winning five CIS Championship titles with the Ravens and was the only three-time recipient of the Moser Trophy in U SPORTS (formally CIS) history. The 6’3'' shooting guard from Richmond, BC has played professionally in Europe, playing for various teams in Greece, Germany, Spain and currently in France. Scrubb has represented Canada’s Senior Men's National Team on the international stage several times, most recently capturing the bronze at the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship and joining the 2016 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament team.

In Canada’s last two games at AmeriCup, Alexander averaged 12 points, 6 rebounds, shooting 10/16 from the field and 4/5 from the line. The 6’4” forward attended Syracuse University (NCAA) where she was named the Syracuse all-time leading scorer as the first player to surpass over 2,000 career points (2,024), leader in blocks (350), field goals (736), free throws made (552) and games played (140). Selected in the first round 8th overall at the 2013 WNBA draft, Alexander now plays professionally for the Minnesota Lynx (WNBA) and in Belgium with the Royal Castors Braine. The Milton, ON native has played in dozens of games with Team Canada over the last 6 years, most recently representing Canada as a member of the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament 2020 team that secured Canada’s third consecutive Olympic appearance, and as a member of the 2021 FIBA AmeriCup team earlier this month.
