Memorial Sea-Hawks standout rookie Emmanuel Ring is The Telegram sports department’s choice as athlete of the week.
The Sea-Hawks dropped a pair of basketball games by identical 81-77 scores to the University of Cape Breton last weekend in Sydney, N.S., but the results certainly would not have been as close if not for the work of Ring.
Saturday, he scored 24 points and pulled down 12 rebounds, and followed up with an incredible 37-pount, 12-rebound performance Sunday.
The Sea-Hawks are 3-5 at the Christmas/exam break. They resume play in the Atlantic University Sport conference Jan. 5-6.
