PACWEST Week 11 – November 17, 2013

Men’s Basketball Athlete of the Week

Brody Greig (Langara College)


Brody Greig has started off the 2013-14 season playing at a very high level. Greig has been the Falcons player of the week for the second straight weekend and was awarded this weekend with the PACWEST Player of the Week. The 6’3” Richmond, BC, guard is in his 4th year of eligibility. Heading into the weekend, Greig and the Falcons sat two points behind the undefeated VIU Mariners.  Langara needed good results in order to keep pace with those Mariners.

On Thursday night the Falcons faced Kwantlen Polytechnic University in their home opener. Greig contributed 2 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists in the Falcons 109-63 thrashing on the Eagles.

On Saturday the Falcons hosted the Columbia Bible College Bearcats and in only 25 minutes of play, Greig led the Falcons to yet another lopsided victory. In a 119-73 win, Greig earned a triple double with 15 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds. He added 3 steals to his totals.

It was the 4th time this season that Greig has recorded a triple double. His averages for the weekend work out to 8.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 10.5 assists and 2.5 steals per game. Greig shot a perfect 4 for 4 from the foul line and he was 6 for 8 from the field. He is currently leading the PACWEST in assists with a 10.80 apg and is second in rebounding with a 9.20 rpg.
