CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Basketball players Jenna Mae Ellsworth and Milorad Sedlarevic are the UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
Ellsworth is a second-year guard and science student from Charlottetown. The Panthers split a pair of games during the weekend against the Cape Breton Capers, winning 76-65 and losing 88-78.
In Saturday’s win, Ellsworth scored 16 points on 46 per cent shooting from the field. She had five rebounds, three assists, one steal and a block.
On Sunday, she had 21 points on 62 per cent shooting from the field, five-for-five from the free-throw line while collecting three rebounds, an assist, two steals and a block.
“Jenna Mae had an outstanding weekend on both ends of the court,” said coach Greg Gould. “Her offence was outstanding, but her defensive presence was even better.”
Sedlarevic is a fourth-year forward and a business administration student from Jesenice, Slovenia.
He helped the Panthers pick up their first wins of the season by sweeping the Capers 71-63 and 77-71.
“Milorad Sedlarevic is maturing into a complete player,” said coach Darrell Glenn. “On Saturday night, however, he was given the task of guarding the second-leading scorer in the conference and did a fantastic job of holding him to just seven points. Milorad also managed to score 21 points, shooting six-for-eight from the field and eight-for-nine from the free-throw line.”
