DeLong, a fourth-year engineering student, put up 10 points and eight rebounds in the Varsity Reds’ 60-54 win over Acadia on Friday. In Saturday’s second match-up against the Axewomen DeLong was a force again, posting 14 points and 12 rebounds and leading the V-Reds to a comfortable 72-53 win.

“Kiley is arguably our hardest worker, one of our leaders,” said UNB head coach Jeff Speedy.

“Looking at her stats, she was obviously a key contributor on the court as well. She had a great weekend and after a year off is really finding her rhythm and playing well.”

Javon Masters

Men’s Basketball
2nd Year, Arts
Kitchener, ON

Masters, a second-year arts student from Kitchener, Ontario, led the Varsity Reds to a two-game sweep of the Acadia Axemen in their regular season home-opening weekend. Masters averaged 26.5 points per game for UNB, who are currently ranked eighth in Canada by the CIS.

“There’s no question that Javon is a key part of this team,” UNB head coach Brent Baker said. “Not only is he able to put up the points on his own, he also is a big part of making plays happen. We expect to see more great things from him this season.”
