This week’s OP Player of the Week is Nanaya Miki. Despite her team not winning a game at the tournament, Miki still managed to amass a ridiculous amount of offensive and defensive stats. In two games, Nanaya played 75 out of the 85 total minutes. This was especially evident in the team’s overtime loss to the Capilano Blues, when she played 41 out of 45 minutes.

Over the weekend, she scored 46 of her team’s 124 points, counting for 37 per cent of her team’s offence. Those points included the two free throws against the Blues which tied the game and sent the two teams to overtime. On the back end of the court, Miki was also fantastic. She picked up a total of 16 rebounds, with 10 in the match-up against Capilano. She also had 3 assists to top it all off.

Nanaya Miki’s play was absolutely dominant. Even though her team did not win, she will remain the bright spot of what would otherwise be a very dark weekend.
