SARNIA, Ontario — With that, the first half of the 2018-19 season is officially in the books.

This past week saw a handful of teams take to the court across the OCAA from Tuesday through Friday, while one game was played in the RSEQ on Friday night to cap off an exciting first half of the season across the CCAA. Now, the attention shifts to exams and studying for all of the student-athletes across the country before they can officially enjoy the holiday break.

Over the past five days, the Redeemer Royals were the only team to take to the court twice. They opened the week on the road on Tuesday before a home contest on Friday night to cap off the semester. When all was said and done, the Royals picked up two big wins to continue building momentum as they gear up for a run at the OCAA crown in 2019.

While there were just a handful of games this week, fans were still treated to some impressive performances from players all across Ontario and Quebec. In fact, five players from each the OUA and RSEQ stood out above the rest, and those players make up this week’s edition of the Starting Five.
