(With files from OUA)

The OUA announced today their list of All-Stars and All-Rookie team for the 2012-13 season.  Yoosrie Salhia and Ryan Thomson were both named as first team All-Stars, while Joe Hart was recognized on the All-Rookie team. The OUA's major award winners will be announced tomorrow, March 1, at the Wilson Cup awards breakfast in Toronto.

For the first time in program history, two members of the Lakehead Thunderwolves have been named OUA first team all-stars. Despite not playing in the final game of the season, fifth-year forward Yoosrie Salhia still led the league with 32 blocks, five more than the next closest competition. The Toronto native also grabbed 207 boards, good enough for second best in the OUA  (behind Windsor's Lien Phillip with 222 rebounds) and was second in team scoring with 12.6 points per game. This is first recognition on the OUA first team after being named a second team all-star in 2009-10 and an all-rookie in 2008-09. 

Fourth-year forward Ryan Thomson (Oakville, ON) led the Thunderwolves with 14.4 points per game, shooting 43.6 percent from beyond the arc. This is Thomson’s first league honour since being named an all-rookie in 2009-10.

Joe Hart (Southend, England) made the All-Rookie squad, shooting 94% from the free throw line this season and 35% from the 3-point line (31-88), accumulating 141 points so far this season.
