The UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza female Athlete of the Week is Hannah Currie, from the women’s basketball team.
Playing in her final game as a Varsity Red, Currie had a game to remember in UNB’s quarter-final loss to UPEI at the AUS Championship.
Currie led the Varsity Reds, recording a double-double, scoring 24 points and grabbing 17 rebounds. She also had three blocks in 33 minutes of playing time.
“Hannah finished her university career in style with a huge game,” says Varsity Reds head coach Jeff Speedy. “It was a tough loss, and Hannah did everything she could to get us into the semi-final. I’m so proud of her, not only for how she played on this stage, but for her entire career.”

The UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Javon Masters, from the men’s basketball team.
It was an exceptional week for the fifth-year senior guard, who was named the Atlantic University Sport MVP ahead of the conference championship tournament.
Masters then affirmed that selection by leading the Varsity Reds to their first AUS championship since 1967.
In Saturday’s 96-83 semi-final win over Memorial, Masters scored 20 points, grabbed three rebounds, had nine assists and three steals.
In Sunday’s 84-81 title game victory over St FX, he knocked down 28 points, had eight rebounds and four assists.
“Javon finished his AUS career in grand style, helping us capture UNB’s first conference title in 51 years,” says Varsity Reds head coach Brent Baker. “He’s been special for five years and he’s so deserving of this championship.”
