Leading the Capilano Blues in points, rebounds and assists in a big home win last weekend over Camosun College, Martin Bogajev caught the eye of the PACWEST conference as well and has been named Athlete of the Week.
Bogajev had a season-high 25 points and he added eight rebounds and six assists to lift the Blues to a 77-72 victory Saturday against Camosun.
The 6-foot guard shot 50 per cent from the floor and made five threes. He had 14 of his points in a huge third quarter that sparked the Capilano comeback.
It was a crucial performance as the Blues dressed just eight players with three regular guards sidelined due to injury.
In the opening game of the weekend, Bogajev had 15 points and seven rebounds in a narrow 73-70 setback. The fourth-year guard played all but six minutes between the two games against Camosun.
Capilano is on the road to finish the regular season and need some good results to grab a place at the PACWEST provincial basketball championships taking place Feb. 27 to 29 at CapU's Centre for Sport and Wellness.
