The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference is pleased to announce that Spencer Marion of the Augustana Vikings Men’s Basketball team, has been selected as the 2015-16 ACAC Men’s Basketball North Division Rookie of the Year.
When Spencer committed to Augustana, the coaching staff knew that he had skills and potential to contribute immediately. His characteristically humble approach to the game combined with his confidence, was significant to the Vikings’ relatively young roster. Spencer’s strength of character and work ethic allowed him to quickly adapt to his new environment and he began making an impact in every game he played this season.
Through 24 regular season games, Spencer collected 161 rebounds to lead the Vikings and averaged approximately 12 points per game. Marion also led the team in blocked shots and started every game for the Vikings. A graduate of Archbishop MacDonald High School in Edmonton, Spencer is taking Business Management as part of his long-range academic vision to enter law school. Equally focused and determined in the classroom and on the court, he is an excellent example of a dedicated student-athlete.
