Published: 24Jan2011


MONTREAL - Basketball players Simon Bibeau of St. Bruno, Que., and Natalie Larocque of Quebec City are the McGill University athletes of the week for the period ending Jan. 23, 2011.


Bibeau, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound guard with the Redmen, scored 45 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in two road victories last weekend. The 19-year-old finance freshman shot 46.7 per cent from the field (14/30), 45.5 from three-point range (5/11) and made 12 of 16 shots from the foul-line. A measure of consistency, he had 23 points in a 67-65 win at Concordia on Friday and added 22 in an 82-70 overtime decision at UQAM, Saturday. Bibeau joined the team out of Champlain College in St. Lambert, Que.


Larocque, a 5-foot-7 guard with the division-leading Martlets, tallied 32 points and pulled down 14 rebounds in road victories against cross-town rivals Concordia and UQAM. She shot 41.4 per cent from the floor (12/29), made four of six three-pointers and went 4-for-4 from the free-throw line. The 24-year-old master's student in physical therapy netted 15 points in a 72-60 overtime victory at Concordia and added 17 points in a 93-68 win at UQAM. A product of Dawson College, Larocque transferred to McGill last fall after graduating from Northern Michigan.
