Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for November 7-13, 2016
SAIT Trojans women’s basketball player Alexa Tan played anything like a rookie in her team’s two wins this past weekend over Red Deer College and Olds College, scoring a combined 44 points. The 5-foot-5 guard lit up the scoreboard in her team’s 67-62 win over Red Deer, scoring 28 points while adding five rebounds and five assists. A night later, Tan played a ton of minutes due to her team being short-handed, and again pitched in with a huge effort, scoring 16 points with six rebounds, three assists and a steal in their 57-53 overtime victory. Despite only playing four games this season, Tan leads the ACAC South Division in three-pointers made this season with 12.
Alexa Tan is a first year Business Administration student at SAIT.
