Victories haven’t come that easily for the St. John’s Edge as of late.
But Edge point guard Junior Cadougan is on a bit of a winning streak. The National Basketball League of Canada has announced Cadougan as the latest NBLC’s top Canadian of the week.
Make that the continuing Canadian of the week, since this makes it consecutive weekly domestic honours fo the 28-year-old Toronto native. It's also the third time in the last two months he's received the top Canadian award.
Cadougan averaged 16.3 ppg and 3.0 assists per game in three Edge games last week. Unfortunately for St. John’s, they were all losses. Still, the Edge (17-15) remain virtually tied for first place in the Central Division and will be looking to snap a four-game losing skid as they begin an eight-game regular season-ending homestand Sunday afternoon at Mile One Centre against the Cape Breton Highlanders.
Overall, Cadougan has a ppg average of just over 14 this season, but has registered better than 18 points per contest during the Edge’s last 15 outings.
