U SPORTS Players with Professional Careers

U Sports Hoops, with the research assistance of Barry Hayes, has started a project to document the professional career of players with a U SPORTS Basketball background. We are using a variety of websites and Google searches to gather information. If you have any information to add, please feel free to send a note via the contact form or regular email.

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
  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.
James Derouin (Ottawa '04)
Ottawa head coach
