November 30, 2013, FREDERICTON, N.B. (ISN) – Saint Mary’s University guard Justine Colley, already the school’s all-time scoring leader, has now broken the AUS mark for career points scored.

With 25 points in tonight’s road game against UNB, Colley, the reigning AUS and CIS player of the year, has moved past former StFX star Theresa MacCuish’s career total of 2,111 points scored in her five-year career with the X-Women.

The 5-foot-9 native of East Preston, N.S., has now accumulated 2,116 points in 87 career regular season games.

Last year, Colley became the first player from the Atlantic University Sport conference to receive the Nan Copp Award as the CIS player of the year after leading the nation in scoring for the third consecutive season. She was also the Atlantic conference nominee for the BLG awards, which honour the top university athletes in the country.

Her CIS-leading 565 total points scored in 2012-13 established a new AUS single-season mark and she also led the country in steals (78), field-goals made (194) and free-throws made (141).

Justine has been a first-team AUS all-star in each of her four previous seasons with the Huskies and was also named the 2009-10 AUS rookie of the year.

With tonight’s 81-53 victory, the CIS No. 1-ranked Huskies are a perfect 8-0 this season.
