Her speed and athleticism highlight her effectiveness in all areas of the game, but particularly in the open court in transition.

She will be graduating in 2011 from UBC O with a Nursing degree, and will be missed next season when the team moves to the CIS. Huber, the other co-captain of the squad, finished the season 7th in scoring (13.67 ppg), 2nd in rebounding (11.93 rpg) and 8th in assists (2.86 apg) for the BCCAA. At 6’, Huber runs the court as well as any guard and excels in the Heat’s transition game. She tallied 7 double-doubles (scoring and rebounds) out of 15 games played this season.
The Men’s team has two All-Star representatives this year in Alex Roth, named to the 1st Team, and Micah Cockrill to the 2nd Team. Roth, a fourth year point guard who was also Captain of the team, is the undisputed leader of the team. He had many responsibilities this season that included leading his team in minutes, being their 2nd top scorer at 13.2 ppg, grabbing 5.6 rebounds per game and leading his team with 3.4 assists per game. Cockrill, a first year Wing player who was also named to the All-Rookie Team, started every game for the Heat this season.
He won the BCCAA’s Athlete of the Week award twice for his shooting exploits, particularly from the 3-point line. He has been counted on to provide consistent scoring, as he led his team with 14.6 ppg while also grabbing close to 5 rebounds per game. Having just wrapped up his rookie season, Cockrill will be an integral part of the team’s ambitions in the CIS next year and onward for the next several years.
