OTTAWA -- Philip Scrubb collected another basketball trophy Wednesday, earning Canadian Interuniversity Sports most outstanding player award for the third consecutive season. The fourth-year guard from Carleton University kicked off his varsity career with rookie of the year honours in 2011, before racking up three straight Mike Moser Memorial Trophies for outstanding player. "Phil has been the guy we have gone through for four years and without him, there could never have been the success that we have had," said Ravens head coach Dave Smart. "He is an extremely talented player who is a full team guy over everything else." The 21-year-old from Richmond, B.C., was one of three Ravens to win national awards. His older brother Thomas, a fourth-year forward, was named the top defensive player in the CIS, while Smart added to his collection of Stuart W. Aberdeen Memorial Trophies, claiming his fourth consecutive coach of the year award and seventh overall. University of New Brunswick guard Javon Masters won the Dr. Peter Mullins Trophy as rookie of the year, while Saint Marys forward Harry Ezenibe won the Ken Shields Award for excellence in basketball, academics and community involvement. The awards were presented in advance of the CIS mens championship that opens Friday in Ottawa. Scrubb was the most consistent player on the top-ranked Ravens, leading Carleton in scoring (18.6 points a game) and assists (4.9). The six-foot-three guard was ranked third in the CIS in assist-to-turnover ratio, fifth in three-point shooting and eighth in free-throw percentage. Scrubb led Carleton to a perfect 22-0 in conference action for the third time in four years. The commerce student helped the Ravens to the CIS title in each of his first three seasons. He was the only active CIS player invited to Canadas senior national team camp last summer. Scrubb was a member of the national team for both the 2013 Summer Universiade and the 2011 Pan American Games. The other finalists for the Moser Trophy were Acadia forward Owen Klassen, McGill guard Vincent Dufort and Alberta forward Jordan Baker. Thomas Scrubb earned defensive MVP honours for the first time after claiming the conference defensive award for the second consecutive season. The six-foot-six forward was once again the anchor of a defensive unit that finished first in the OUA and second in the CIS for fewest points allowed (62.2 per game). The neuroscience student averaged 8.4 rebounds a game on the defensive end, and chipped in on offence with 13.2 points a night. "Tommy has been asked to cover the best player on the other team every game regardless of position for two years," said Smart. "He has deferred other offensive aspects of his game to do that. If not for him I have no idea how we would stop anyone. He doesnt defend one position, he defends four positions, very few can do that." Acadia forward Owen Klassen, Concordia forward Zach Brisebois and Victoria guard Reiner Theil were the other finalists for defensive MVP. Masters, a native of Kitchener, Ont., is the first UNB player to win the Dr. Peter Mullins Trophy. The six-foot guard claimed the national scoring title with 27.4 points a game, and topped the Atlantic conference in three-point shooting percentage (42.4). His 215 free throws made, the highest total in CIS this year, are a new season mark for the league. The 19-year-old helped the Varsity Reds finish with a .500 record (10-10) for the first time since 2003-04. "(Masters) has made a major impact on our program and will continue to do so as he progresses through his career at UNB," said coach Brent Baker. "Leading the country in scoring as a freshman is a rare and special accomplishment." McGill guard Dele Ogundokun, Brock forward Dani Elgadi and Alberta forward Mamadou Gueye were the other nominees. Smart now has seven CIS coach-of-the-year awards in only 15 seasons, three more than legendary coaches Ken Shields and Bruce Enns. His four consecutive national awards are also two more than any other coach in history. This season, he led the Ravens to an undefeated conference record for the third time in four years and the sixth time overall. He improved his all-time record in league play to 303-23 (.929), with nine of those losses coming in his first year as head coach. "Dave has done a remarkable job with our mens basketball program," said Carleton athletic director Jennifer Frenning. "Not only has he recruited and developed top student-athletes, he has instilled positive values and a strong work ethic which will make them successful well past graduation." The other finalists were Acadias Stephen Baur, McGills David DeAveiro and Victorias Craig Beaucamp. Ezenibe, a native of Nigeria, became the first Saint Marys student-athlete to win the Ken Shields Award. On the court, the six-foot-four forward averaged 9.0 points a game in his fifth season. In the classroom, the two-time academic all-Canadian is completing a double major in sociology and criminology and maintains a 3.6 grade point average. Ezenibe spends his free time volunteering with youth in the community and hopes to establish a project to help children in Nigeria. In November, he was invited by Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri to speak at the opening of the Giants of Africa foundation. "Harry is completely selfless," said Huskies head coach Jonah Taussig. "He is always looking out for the greater good whether it be with his teammates or the youth he works with in the community. He is always looking to make a positive difference in the lives of the people around him." Bishops Scott Ring, Carletons Kevin Churchill and Fraser Valleys Jasper Moedt were also nominated.

Serge Ibaka of the Thunder and Matt Barnes of the Clippers were ejected, and Griffin received a technical foul for his part in the altercation with 6 seconds left in the second quarter. Kevin Durant had 33 points, making 15 of 17 free throws, and 10 assists to lead the Thunder, who had won four straight. Russell Westbrook added 19 points and 10 assists. Jamal Crawford scored 20 points off the bench for the Clippers, who had six players in double figures while winning their third in a row. DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick scored 15 each, and Chris Paul had 14 points and 16 assists. The fireworks began when Griffin was trying to put the ball up and his arms and Ibakas became entangled. Barnes shoved Ibaka hard in the chest. Griffin kept trying to get at Ibaka as players from both teams formed a scrum. Ibaka cocked his right fist, but didnt take a swing as Barnes smiled at him. Durant made the free throw on Griffins technical and Westbrook hit a 3-pointer to give the Thunder a 62-53 lead at the break. The exchange certainly riled up the Clippers. Down by 10 early in the third, they rallied with a 14-2 spurt to go up 74-71, their first lead since the opening quarter. Redick had a pair of free throws and a 3-pointer, Paul had two free throws and a basket and Griffin capped it with five straight points. He stole the ball and dribbled down the court, driving in for a layup. After a timeout, Durant lost the ball and Griffin scored again while getting fouled. He made the free throw. During the Clippers run, Ryan Gomes, Nick Coollison and Thabo Sefolosha all picked up their fourth fouls.dddddddddddd Gomes started the second half in place of Ibaka. Los Angeles shot 7 of 8 on free throws late in the period to take an 83-78 lead into the fourth. The Clippers forced turnovers and contested shots in the fourth when they werent scoring. They opened with an 8-0 run to take a 91-78 lead on the strength of their bench shooting. The Thunder couldnt get a sustained run together while turning the ball over against a team they swept in three games last season. After his ejection, Barnes used a derogatory term in a profane tweet that began "I love my teammates like family," but went on to seemingly suggest he was tired of backing them up because his actions "cost me money." The Thunder led by 14 points in the first half before the Clippers closed to 62-53 at the break. Durant, Ibaka and Westbrook all reached double figures in the half, when the Clippers were all in single digits. Ibaka had 13 points on perfect shooting before his ejection. He hit all six of his shots from the field and was 1 of 1 from the line. Barnes was scoreless in just under 8 minutes. NOTES: Paul became the first player in Clippers history to have at least 10 points and 10 assists in each of the first nine games of the season. The last player to do so was Magic Johnson of the Lakers in the first 11 games of the 1990-91 season. ... The Thunder was the leagues second-best road team last season. ...
