The Ontario and Canadian college basketball seasons are over for the provincial and national champion Mohawk Mountaineers but forward Andrew Ciuttini is still on a winning streak.

The second-year grad from Dundas Parkside has been named Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Male Athlete of the Week, following last weekend’s first-ever Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association basketball title.

Cicuttini, who was selected Most Valuable Player in the CCAA championship won by the Mountaineers in Truro, N. S., was earlier named both the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association Overall Male and Male Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week.

He recorded two double-doubles and averaged 21 points and 13 rebounds over three games in the championship.
