    Third-year University of Alberta Golden Bears forward Brody Clarke is the Sherlock Holmes Athlete of the Week after leading the U SPORTS No. 5 ranked Bears to a weekend sweep of the No. 2 ranked Calgary Dinos. 

    Clarke was tremendous at both ends of the floor in the home-and-home series, recording a combined 38 points, 28 rebounds, and six assists, while shooting 50% from the field. 

    The 2016 Canada West Rookie of the Year finished with a game-high 21 points in the Bears 92-79 win in Calgary on Thursday, while also adding 10 rebounds, six of which were offensive, and adding a pair of assists. 

    Clarke was just as dominant on Saturday, adding another 17 points on 6/10 shooting, while pulling in a season-high 18 rebounds in the win. Another six of Clarke’s 18 rebounds were offensive, as the Bears out-rebounded Calgary 49-29 in the ten-point win. 

    The Golden Bears, who now sit atop Canada West with an 11-1 record, will host the 8-4 Regina Cougars this weekend at Saville Community Sports Centre in Edmonton.
