CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Basketball players Reese Baxendale and Jamesly Jerome are the UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
Baxendale, a second-year science student from Sussex, N.B., helped propel the Panthers women’s squad to two wins over Memorial on the opening weekend of the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) season. The guard had 28 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals in Saturday’s 79-75 win and 22 points –including the game-tying three-point shot – in Sunday’s 62-60 win.
“Reese made the plays we needed at the times we needed them, all weekend,” said coach Matt Gamblin.
Jerome, a first-year arts student from Montreal, helped UPEI start the season 2-0 with back-to-back wins over Memorial. The forward pulled down 13 rebounds and scored 14 points on Sunday, notching the first double-double of his AUS career.
“Jamesley led all teammates in minutes played, playing 31 of 40 minutes,” said coach Darrell Glenn. “His competitive spirit is something that our team hopes to embrace as part of our identity.”
