Van Luven has consistently been a dominant presence in the league. As a 6th year player, Van Luven looks to lead undefeated Hold My Dynasty to another championship.
Matt Belanger (Kenny Powers)
Belanger has greatly stepped up his play this semester. Leading 2nd place Kenny Powers in scoring, Belanger has them hunting for their first league championship. His improved post game has allowed him to find his scoring touch and make him difficult to match-up with.
Marcus LaPenta (They Shoot They Score)
LaPenta has solidified his status as one of the league's premier scorers. Winning the scoring title by a landslide, Marcus has clearly been the best player on They Shoot They Score. The imbalanced scoring has allowed many teams to key in him, which may hurt They Shoot They Scores playoff chances.
Clarke is an exciting player on a good team. His team has made a push for the top of the league behind balanced scoring. Clarke regularly brings his basketball flavour to the game of handball often using a Euro Step to score or simply jumping over top of defenders.
Great team. Average goalie. It is hard to not give a nomination to the goalie of the team who has not lost yet.
David Evans (Arnie Arne and The Funky Bunch)
Evans has come on strong lately. He continually makes great saves as well as jumpstarts his team's fast break. Evan has the ability to influence the offence but may gamble a little too much.
Scott Dainty (Kin & Tonics)
Dainty, a nominee last semester is continuing to improve his reputation as an elite goalie. He continually keeps his team in the game as he constantly puts his body on the line. Dainty has a defined style in which he stops nearly all shots with his chest.
James Redelmeier (They Shoot They Score)
Redelmeier has been inconsistent in his play this year. When he is on his game, he is all over the crease making saves that dazzle those around him. If he can have a big game, he can keep his team in any game.
Freshman of The Year
Marcus LaPenta (They Shoot They Score)
Marcus doesn't play like a first year student. He has learned the game quickly and has effectively carved out his role as a fastbreak player and a guy who gets the hustle points.
Troy Barwick (Hold My Dynasty)
Barwick has shown a precise scoring touch both semesters. He has established himself as an elite scorer in the league. Barwick refusal to play defense is what may limit his chances of winning this award.
Charanjot Bindra (BU2FUL)
CJ has been his team's leading scorer. He also takes on the team's primary defensive role. Bindra has shown that he is not afraid of bigger, stronger, wiser opponents as he sought out a match-up with reigning MVP and 6th year student Wes Van Luven. Van Luven was quoted as saying "CJ has a lot of heart. I still got him, but he was working hard and actually made me work to get my goals."
Newcomer of The Year
Victor Ivanescu (Keannu Reeves)
Ivanescu has come as a bit of a surprise to many people. He consistently leads his team in scoring. If Keannu Reeves is going to make a push in the playoffs it will be behind Victor's scoring
Lukas Petithomme (Euro Trash)
Lukas is an elite player for Euro Trash. Petithomme, a French exchange student, found the first half of the season frustrating. Adapting from the way the game is played in French to how it is played here took some time for Petithomme. Since the midway point of the season, Lukas has established himself as a premier player in the league.
Andrew Wilby (BU2FUL)
Wilby has consistently been a performer for BU2FUL. His combination of strength, precision and decision-making has allowed him to be a perfect compliment to BU2FUL's 2 premier players Charanjot Bindra and Jeff Nelson.
Scott Currie (Euro Trash)
Currie plays all over the court. He is a strong goalie when he chooses to play there. When he comes out, he is a constant scoring threat. Currie has the ability to impact the game from all over and could prove to be instrumental in Euro Trashs playoff push.
Female of The Year
Callie Remigis (Hold My Dynasty)
Remigis, last semester's Female of the Year, has spent a good chunk of the season among the top 10 in goals scored. She consistently exploits her match-ups against smaller, weaker defenders.
Tiffiny Lai (Arne Arne and The Funky Bunch)
Lai has emerged lately as a serious threat to score. Give her an open shot and she will finish it. Her contributions are not only limited to scoring as she often makes many steals and is one of her teams more vocal leaders.
Jen McCormick (Failure to Comply)
McCormick surprises goalies with her throwing ability. She consistently capitalizes on her scoring opportunities and helps Failure to Comply stay competitive every game even though they often play with one more female on the court then required by rule.
Kaley Powers (Kin & Tonics)
Powers has a strong arm and has led her team in scoring on a couple of occasions this season. Look for Powers to play a big role in Kin & Tonics run through the playoffs.
