In the ACAA Championship Game, Sam Wilson hit several three-point shots which were daggers in the hopes of an MSVU comeback helping her Tommies to a third straight ACAA title – a conference record. She contributed 14 points, 6 for 8 from the free throw line, six rebounds, two assists, and two steals in just 24 minutes on the floor. The guard from Woodstock, NB, in her first season with the Tommies, worked hard on the defensive end as well, helping her team hold MSVU to just 40 points and Mount Allison to 47 points in the semifinals.

In his final ACAA conference basketball games, Steve Hardy came up big for the men’s basketball Hurricanes.
The Summerside native hit a game-winning three-pointer with seven seconds left to beat the Mount St. Vincent Mystics 58-57 on Saturday night.
He followed it up by scoring 15 points and adding five rebounds in Sunday’s final, which was good enough for Hardy to be named player of the game as the Hurricanes defeated the St. Thomas Tommies 70-61 to capture the first ACAA basketball championship in school history.
An alumnus of Three Oaks Senior High in Summerside, Hardy is currently enrolled in the Marketing and Advertising Management program at Holland College.
