El Zanaty, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard on the men’s basketball team, earned all-tournament honours at the McGill Redbird Classic last week, where McGill finished second with a 2-1 record. The 25-year-old finance & treasury junior scored a tourney-high 68 points to go with 14 rebounds, 5 steals and 11 assists in three games. He shot 37.0 per cent from the field (20/54), 25 per cent from 3-point range (5/20), and 85.2 per cent from the foul line (23/27). El Zanaty is a graduate of Champlain College in St. Lambert, Que.

The 5-foot-4 forward scored six points, including a pair of goals, in two games, both victories by the No.1-ranked Martlets last week. Bettez, who was recently named to play for Team Canada at the Under-22 world championships in Germany next January, was the CIS rookie of the year last season after playing for Dawson College.
