Odette student Mike Rocca wins Ken Shields Award; named OUA all-star

The Windsor Lancers are pleased to announce that men's basketball fifth year senior Mike Rocca has been named the league's Ken Shields award recipient, as well as being named an OUA second team all-star, as announced by the league Thursday.

The 2017 team MVP is a three time academic all-Canadian, and captured the DeMarco award last year as the top male student athlete who excels in both academics and athletics. He is the team's representative on the Lancer Student Athlete Council, the student recruitment lead and financial markets lab director for the Odette School of Business, and he represents the Lancers at numerous community events such as school read-a-thons and other community fundraisers.

On the court, the Sarnia, ON native led the Lancers throughout the season averaging 18.0 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game to go along with 5.2 assists and 1.5 blocks.
