|U SPORTS provided me with the ability to learn the game and develop my skills,
along with the opportunity to play this game for a living.
It makes me proud to see countless players who play in our country go on to
accomplish great things at the professional level!
This list is more proof of the talent our coaches develop and we are thankful
to Martin and Barry for their continued work in highlighting this.
Willy Manigat (Carleton '12)
Brock head coach & former Pro
|This list helps many programs across the country in recruiting future student athletes,
but also, sheds light on the evolution of University Basketball in Canada.
There is history here and the level of play along with coaching has ascended to the better.
It also dismantles any sort of myth that you cannot play professionally by staying home and playing in U SPORTS!
Patrick Tatham (Cleveland State '07)
McMaster head coach & former Pro
|A fantastic collection of the history of the professional game in our country.
The list shows not only all of the great talent we have had in our country but the ever increasing numbers of athletes
that are going pro from Canadian schools.
We all owe a huge thank you to Martin and Barry for their incredible work documenting this history of our outstanding athletes.
Kirby Schepp (Winnipeg '98 & '00, Victoria '07)
Manitoba head coach
|Information like this is key in understanding the history, growth, and quality of Canadian university basketball.
As coaches in Canada, we are always communicating that our programs consistently produce high-level professional athletes.
A resource like this is absolutely essential to the current and next generation of athletes,
it shows that playing in Canada is a viable path to professional basketball at a global level.
