Trinity Western in Transition

 

Trinity Western Spartans –  

3rd year Coach Aaron Muhic will be counting on his 7 returning 4th and 5th year players to help his Spartans turn the tide on 2 rough seasons for the Langley, BC crew. 5th year, 6-0 guard, Pogos Trunyan, a 3 point shooting threat from  Sacramento, CA,  led Trinity scorers with 14.7 ppg last year, and 4th year wing, 6-4 Vartan Taniellian (White Rock, BC) was 11.8 ppg / 3.6 rebs. Expect 4th year, 6-5 wing, Max Viitala (Melbourne, Aus) to up his 11 ppg scoring, with his 49% accuracy from the floor.

TWU’s leading scorer, Pogos Trunyan, returns for his 5th year.

Josiah Meppelink, a 2nd year, 6-3 guard from Langley stepped in as a rookie to post a solid 1.5 assist to turnover mark as a 24 mins/game rookie.  Newcomers this Fall include 3rd year transfer (Briercrest, SK), Ethan DaSilva (Calgary), a slick lead guard with an eye for the hoop.

‘Walk-on’ at the forward spot is, Steve Sesink, a 6-8 big body, who Coach Muhic feels, ‘can help us inside’. The Spartans also added 6-7 Daniel Stead from a good program at Langley – Walnut Grove, and 6-6 Aaron Petkau, Ballenas HS, Parksville

Coach Muhic describes himself as a ‘builder’, and he wants to develop a winning program and to graduate his players.  This may be a challenge for one of Canada West’s smaller schools, but Muhic’s track record as one of the NAIA’s winningest coaches while at William Jessup University (CA), suggests that he is up for it. This may be a ‘transitional year’ with as many new faces as returnees.

Last year – 3-17 …..  Prognosis –  Aiming for 10-10, but with a very rugged schedule in 2017-18.

 

Tanielian Trains in Homeland

5th year Trinity Western Spartan, Vartan Tanielian, went ‘home’ for much of this Summer.  In his case ‘home’ is all the way back to childhood, in Lebanon.  The trip was, however, primarily to take advantage of an opportunity to work-out with National Basketball Team players in the country of his birth.

“It was brilliant”, gushes the enthusiastic Tanielian, who made a big enough impression that he made the top 15 on this National squad. “It was a real eye-opener, to see how these pros prepared for competition.  To see how hard they trained, and took care of physical conditioning.  I certainly learned the level of dedication it takes to reach their level, to succeed in the pros, and to stay there over a number of years.”  Vartan was invited to travel to Serbia with the team, and he was part of their training for a series there.

A key returnee for the Spartans in his final season, Vartan believes this overseas experience will help him give more to TWU over the Fall and Winter. Asked to comment on the challenges for Trinity with a very rugged League schedule, the young man said, “I like the tough slate of games. We’ll know where we stand.  I think this can be our year, and I’m looking at 10-12 wins as a team goal.”

Moving from Lebanon to Los Angeles at 6 years old in 2001, Vartan said he had to learn resilience as he faced cultural biases from Americans shortly after 9-11.  “But I found friends, and I discovered how much I loved playing basketball”, he said.  Vartan’s enthusiasm for life and basketball allowed him to get through this traumatic time in his life.

Moving on to B.C., his family settled in White Rock/ Surrey, and he made more friends who were basketball players.  One of these was fellow TWU player, Tyus Allen. “We grew up together”, says Tyus. “He is like a brother to me; I loved playing with him (at White Rock Christian Academy, then on to TWU).

Allen, whose Dad, Scott, coached the Spartans for their 1st 3 years at the school, is a talented point guard, but has, in the past couple of years, had several knee injuries. The latest, he suffered in a game last season (one in which Tyus was headed for a triple -double’ on the stats sheet).  “It’s hard for me to see my friend have to struggle through these injuries”, says Vartan. “He will be a player-coach with us for now, but I realize how hard it is for him to deal with his severe injury.”

Tanielian, who was disappointed in his season last year, suggests, “I am better prepared now, and in much better physical shape.  I’m looking for us to have our bgest season yet.”  If this new-found determination and confidence can be matched by the rest of the Spartans, they just may surprise many observers.

 

‘The Ball Goes Up ….’

 

 Fall Pre-Season Games on Tap This Week

Teams have been busy with their early Fall work-outs, and pre-season games are getting underway starting this weekend.  Laurentian and Algoma start things off this Friday in Sudbury, while Alberta has an Alumni game on Saturday.  UBC-O hosts Vancouver Island , a strong B.C. College League team, also on Saturday in Kelowna.  Laval, Cape Breton, Saskatchewan, York, Nipissing, and Western Ontario also have CCAA opponents lined up over the next 10-12 days.

Coach Peter Guarasci and the Heat are busy in September.

UBC-O travel to Ontario next week, where the Heat will play McMaster, Toronto, and Western Ont. Also beginning the last weekend in September will be UVic’s annual Guy Vetrie Memorial Tournament.  The Vikes once again welcome the National Champion Carleton Ravens, along with Concordia Stingers and the Guelph Gryphons.  Winnipeg Wesmen continue their tradition of playing a pair of games in Thunder Bay vs Lakehead on September 28 and 29.

Other games that get our interest …  Memorial visits Brock, McMaster, and York on the 29th-Oct 1. The Eric Garland Tournament at U. New Brunswick has Saint Marys, Cape Breton, and UQAM.

 

NCAA vs U-Sports : 45 – 25

6-8 Eddie Ekiyor and the Carleton Ravens look like championship contenders , even in August.

In 70 games played this past August – early September between U-Sports

In 70 games played this past August – early September between U-Sports schools and NCAA squads, the edge goes to the Americans by a 45 – 25 count.

Overall,  Carleton owned a 9-2 record over NCAA competition, including wins over Alabama, Vanderbilt,  and Northeastern.  McGill, who won all 3 on a trip to the Caribbean,  was just 1-4 in later home games, and had an overall 4-6 mark. Windsor won both their NCAA games in August, then went to The Netherlands and swept a 3 game series against club-pro teams there. Ottawa Gee-Gees were 3-1 with visiting U.S. schools, with their lone loss to Alabama by an 81-71 score.

Out West, it was Alberta with a 1-1 record against Montana State, as they clipped the ‘Cats  97-72 in their 2nd try in Calgary.  UBC took a ‘modified line-up’ (minus Coach Hanson and ace forward, Conor Morgan, among others) to Costa Rica, and lost 3 straight to Texas -El Paso once and 2 to a strong Nevada-Reno Wolf Pack team.   Full details of these results are available on the fine  U-Sports Hoops web-site , which is so well edited by Martin Timmerman in Waterloo.

Overtime –

  • One of a very strong group of graduates leaving the Manitoba Bisons is wing man, Keith Omoerah, who has signed a pro contract with Baerum in Norway.  Omoerah, Amarjit Basi, Ilarion Bonhomme, Brett Jewell, and Jonathan Alexander take a lot of skill and experience away from the U of M roster.   More on Omoerah’s move to Europe in this Bisons Athletics release.

  •  Raptors Train at UVic … In what has become a tradition, the Toronto Raptors will hold training camp in British Columbia for the 4th straight year. UVic’s CARSA Gym will be the site from Sept. 26-29.  While practices will be closed to the public, fans will get a chance to see an   intra-squad game  on Thursday, Sept. 28. Tickets for this intra-squad game “ … were available online and in person at the CARSA membership services counter and were in incredibly high demand,” read the news release from Vikes Athletics as of last Friday.  Actually, the on-line and in- person ticket rush was over in less than 1/2 hour! Sell-out!  There are some standing room seats available closer to game time.

    Canadian Kyle Wiltjer will be one of the new faces in the Toronto line-up this season.

    This is a great tradition by the Raps, who have , in recent years, also had pre-season NBA games in various cities across Canada.  Unfortunately, Victoria will be the only Canadian venue this season.  Toronto has early October games in Honolulu, Portland, Toronto, and Chicago.  More Raptors info

 

 

Basi Latest to Go ‘Euro-Pro’

 

 

AJ Basi to Play Pro in Britain

Bisons’ grad, Amarjit Basi, will play in Newcastle, Britain.

The dream of a very young Amarjit Basi was to play basketball at a high level.  The 5th year graduated captain of the Manitoba Bisons has been moving on to a higher level since he was 9 and 10 years old.  After helping the Bisons, under Coach Kirby Schepp, to the 2017 U-Sport Nationals in Halifax, Basi, a slick ball-handler and deady outside shooter, recently signed with Newcastle in the British Div. 1 professional ranks.  (Story in the Winnipeg Free Press).

He joins many Canada West grads who are continuing their playing days with professional teams in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.  We wish AJ the best in Britain, and the same to UVic’s Grant Sitton (Slovakia), Calgary’s Thomas Cooper (Germany), and  Thompson River’s Josh Wolfram (Czech Republic).

 

New Canada West Campaign Prompts Logo Changes

The ‘New Canada West’ re-brand is yet another change  for what started as the Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Association, and this is a whole League promotion to launch a new marketing effort.  The details of this new branding are itemized here at their new web-site.

As the League moves forward, so do several schools, with new logos for their teams.  On our  header you will see the up-dated looks for the Brandon Bobcats and the Thompson Rivers WolfPack.  We have also included the new logos for both the Mt. Royal Cougars and the UNBC Timberwolves in this story.

 

One of the most important things the League and it’s schools can do is to make a yearly effort to increase their appeal to potential fans.  University sports may deserve a bigger presence in mainline media than they currently receive, but it is encumbent upon the League and individual schools to become more active in capturing that market.

Close Game as Aussies Beat Canada

 

 

Canada Finishes 10th After Loss to Australia

 Australia 101 Canada 96 – Canada settles for 10th place in the 24 country tournament, as they drop a close one to the Aussies on Tuesday.  In this final game in the FISU Championships, again it was  Kevin Bercy (St. FX), leading the way for Canada.  Posting an impressive 22 points / 13 rebounds double-double, Bercy was 10/16 from the floor.  In a dizzying opening quarter, it was 40-35 Canada, but defense steadied in the 18-14 Australia 2nd stanza.  All tied after 3 quarters, then the Aussies took the 4th by 5.

As was expected, Canada got stellar play from Carleton’s Kaza Kajami-Keane (25 points/ 6 rebounds/ 9 assists) and his Ravens’ teammate, Connor Wood , who added 20 points on 6 of 10 from 3 point range.  It was essentially an 8 man rotation for the Canucks, as both Conor Morgan (UBC) and Javon Masters (UNB) were on the bench with injuries. Manitoba’s Justus Alleyn, and Calgary’s David Kapinga were used sparingly.

For the medals, it was Lithuania seizing gold with an 85-74 win over the U.S. , and  Latvia claiming bronze  81-74 over Serbia.    Box Score

 

Canada Loses to Argentina in FIBA Americas Play

Argentina 92  Canada 86 – Canada lost their 2nd straight in Argentina, and will need a herculian effort vs Venezuela to make the medal round. The Canadians shoot 51% from the floor, but the Argentines are better, with 56%. Canada is led by Brady Heslip’s 24 points, as he and Oliver Hanlan (16 pts) combine for 6/11  from 3 point range.  Four Canucks in double figures, with Andrew Nicholson doing all he can, with 12 points and 18 big rebounds.

Canada must beat Venezuela by 25+ points in Tuesday’s game, which can be watched on LiveBasketball.TV  at 6:30 Eastern time.

Canada Wins Again – Australia to Finish Tourney

 

 

Canada 97  Czech Republic 79

 Kevin Bercy (St. FX) boosted Canada’s attack, as they beat the Czech Republic Monday.

Kevin Bercy (St. FX), the 2017 Atlantic Player of the Year, enjoyed his best game of the FISU tournament by far, with 18 points and 8 rebounds.  Canada started slowly, but took control by the half, as Carleton’s Kaza Kajami-Keane, our MVP on this trip, posted 25 points/ 4 rebounds/ 7 assists.  Connor Wood (Carleton), who has played with a leg injury for much of the past 2 weeks, helped the Canadian cause in this Consolation semi-final with 19 points from 5/9 from 3 point range.

The 3rd quarter, with a 27-19 Canada advantage, pretty well iced it. Strong rebounding as a team, led by Bercy, Jean Emmanuel Pierre-Charles (Ottawa) with 7, and Laval’s Alexandre Leclerc (5) , kept the Czech’s at bay. Canada also forced 20 Czech turnovers, many leading to fast break points.

Canada meets Australia, a 93 – 71 winner over Mexico, in the 9th place game on Tuesday. In the Championship semi-finals it was the U.S. 93  Serbia 61, and Lithuania 77 Latvia 75.  Box Score 

In Women’s play in Taiwan, the Canadians, who lost in the Championship quarter-finals, wound up beating the Czechs 84-68  on Monday as well.  That earned Canada 7th place in the 16 team Women’s field.

 

Sr. Nationals Lose Opener in Argentina

U.S. Virgin Islands 83  Canada 71  Not a good start for Canada at the FIBA Americas Tournament in Argentina, as their cold shooting cost them against the USVI squad.  The Canadians are up against Argentina and Venezuela in other group games this week. The odds are long for a shot at semi-finals for this team.  It is a tough assignment without many mainstays needed to compete in World Cup qualifying.

Win over Chinese Taipei for Canada

 

 

 Canada 98  Chinese Taipei  61

Canada dominates the home side in front of a big crowd in this ‘consolation -side match.  Kaza Kajami-Keane and Connor Wood , both Carleton Ravens vets, played strong games in leading Canada’s offense. Kaajami-Keane notched a game-high 25 points, adding 6 assists and 4 steals at the other end.  Wood tallied 15 points on hot (5/9) shooting from 3 point ranged, and passed for 9 assists.  UBC’s Jordan Jensen – Whyte scored 13 points, and all 11 Canadian players dressed hit the score-sheet and played  at least 12 minutes.

Canada’s defense harassed the Taipei ball-handlers as Calgary’s David Kapinga had 5 steals and Kajami-Keane had 4.  UBC’s Conor Morgan was rested again, with his ankle injury, while Manitoba’s Justus Alleyn, UNB’s Javon Masters, and UC’s Kapinga were in the mix after sitting in the Germany game.

The championship quarter-finals featured close , competitive games, with the U.S out-gunning Israel 111-107, Latvia edging Germany 78-76, Lithuania nipping Argentina 72-70, and Serbia getting by Finland 85-84.   Canada plays the Czech Republic on Monday, then has one last game on Tuesday as Basketball competition closes out.   Box Score

Germany Dumps Canada from Medal Round

 

 

Germany  85  Canada 73

Calgary’s Mambi Diawara scores 19 points, but it wasn’t enough to beat Germany on Friday. photo – David Moll, UC Athletics

Canada is eliminated from medal contention, as the German team has the hot hand with 53% field goal shooting vs 40% for the Canadians.  With a shortned bench, especially in the 2nd half, after UBC’s Conor Morgan re-injured his ankle, Canada could not respond to Germany’s scoring.  Calgary’s Mambi Diawara led with 19 points with 3/6 from outside, and he grabbed 6 rebounds, adding 3 assists.  UBC grad, Jordan Jensen-Whyte, chipped in with 15 points/ 4 assists/ 3 steals, but the Germans were clearly better on the day.

The Carleton duo of Connor Wood and Kaza Kajami-Keane had an off-day, shooting a combined 8/28, with German defense concentrating on Kajami-Keane as the offensive trigger. Wood never looked to be 100% in this group play, and Kevin Bercy of St. FX seemed hampered as well.  Neither UNB’s  Javon Masters, Calgary’s David Kapinga, nor Manitoba’s Justus Alleyn played in this final group game.

Erik Nissen (Acadia) was, once again, the stalwart in the middle for Canada, playing 34 minutes, scoring 8 pts and adding 6 boards.  Canada now will play in the ‘consolation side’ , with a game on Sunday vs Taiwan, but medal hopes are gone.  Germany and Finland finish at 4-1 and go on to the quarter-finals.  Qualifiers from other groups  include  the U.S – 5-0, Argentina – 4-1, Serbia 4-1, Latvia 3-2,  Lithuania 4-1, and Israel at 4-1.

  •  UVic Head Coach, Craig Beaucamp, sheds some light on the Canadian Sr. National team’s road to World Cup qualifying through next week’s FIBA America’s competition in Argentina.  Beaucamp, the #1 Assistant to Ryerson’s Roy Rana for this tournament, says of the roster for this event, which is short of most NBA stars,  ““We are trying to get across to our players, that while they might not be the guys eventually chosen for the World Cup team, this is an opportunity for them to showcase themselves and keep themselves relevant [in their pro and international careers].”   More on this team and Beaucamp’s thoughts in this Times-Colonist article by Cleve Dheensaw

 

  • As the Summer edges closer to the Fall, we still have a few NCAA games remaining for Ontario and Quebec U-Sports teams –  Carleton plays Northeastern on Friday in Ottawa, then those Northeastern Huskies meet Bishops Gaiters on Saturday, again in Ottawa.   There are a series of games next week  in Ottawa and Montreal with Hofstra U (NY), St. Francis, Brooklyn, NY, and Siena U. (NY).

Canada Faces Must -Win Game vs Germany

 

 

 

Canada 84  Japan 71

 A solid team effort on Thursday for Canada, as they now look forward to a decisive game against the Germans, who sit atop the Group B standings at 4-0.  Hitting 5/7 from 3 point range, Carleton’s Connor Wood leads the scoring, with his U-Sports teammate, Kaza Kajami-Keane checking in with 16 pts/ 6 asst/ 4 rebs/ 4 steals.  Calgary Dinos guard, David Kapinga, was 2/3 from outside, as Canada hit 47% FG and 10/17 treys.

Coach Kevin Hanson and his staff have done a masterful job of doling out the minutes, as everyone played at least 11 minutes, including Jean- Emmanuel  Pierre-Charles (Ottawa), who returned to action after being injured.  Still resting a leg hurt vs Japan was UBC forward, and Canada West Player of the Year, Conor Morgan.  Canada moves to 3-1, tied with Finland, to whom we lost earlier in the week.  With a Canadian win against Germany, the 3 teams would be tied, and the 2 play-off spots come down to its for and against.  Canada needs an 8+ points spread in this final group game.  Box Score 

Germany beat Finland 71-64, so the Canadians, to have any chance of a ‘play-off berth’ must defeat Germany on Friday.  Thanks to our Hoops – zealot , Tyler, in Winnipeg, for the heads -up on a viewing opportunity from the FISU Livestreaming service … it will show the Canada vs Germany game live at 12 midnight Pacific on Thurs/Fri (1 am Mountain, etc).  Obviously for the hard-core fanatics … like Tyler, who will be itching to see his Bison-buddy, Justus Alleyn, play in Red and White!

Aldrich Berrios, who is taking on 2 major sports this Fall.

  • Your high scoring lead guard wants to play football?!   This proposal was put to UBC-O Coach Peter Guarasci this summer, when Aldrich Berrios, his 4th year star, came to his coach to ask about playing with the Okanagan Sun of the BC Junior Football League. Somewhat surprisingly,  Guarasci was positive … “When I mentioned it to Pete, he loved the idea and I have to thank him for that,” said Berrios.  To find out how Berrios plans to make this work, check out this story from Warren Henderson in Kelowna Capital News.

 

  • If you fans have been paying close attention, you will note that the Carleton Ravens are once again showing their strength in recent games vs U.S. schools.  Other Canadian teams may win some games, but it’s Carleton that, for the most part,  really gets our attention with scores like 87-60 over New Hampshire, 81-74  and 61-56 over Vanderbilt, an SEC team.  Then we have an 84 -71  trimming of Alabama, who were 19-14 overall last season.  The consistent effort, adherence to their game plan, and 2 way excellence are the hallmarks of this amazing team Led by the preeminent U-Sports coach, Dave Smart.

Easy Win for Canada Over Hong Kong

 

 

Canada Crushes Hong Kong in Team Effort

In an obvious mismatch on Tuesday in Taiwan, Canada, even without injured mainstays, Conor Morgan (UBC) and Jean Emmanuel Pierre-Charles (Ottawa), overwhelmed Hong Kong 125-55 in Pool B action.  Erik Nissen (Acadia) was the scoring and rebounding leader, with 20 pts/ 11 boards, as all 10 players helped the team hit on 55% of their field goal attempts.

Kevin Bercy (St. FX) amassed 17 points/ 5 rebounds in only 9 minutes, and 6 Canadians got to double digits in scoring.  The winners enjoyed a huge 63-29 edge over the smaller Hong Kong team on the boards.  Canada, now 2-1, have a rest day on Wednesday, then face a fairly weak (1-2) Japan on Thursday.  It certainly seems a must for Canada to then knock off the Germans in their final game on Friday, if they are to advance to the next round.  Box Score

Too Big a Comeback for Canada

 

 

Finland Downs Cold-Shooting Canucks

Canada’s team, made up of U-Sports ‘all-stars’, dropped a disappointing 79-71 decision to Finland on Monday afternoon in Taipei City.  With a record of 1-1, they are now tasked with winning at least 2 of their 3 remaining group games, if they are to play in quarter-finals.

With their 3 ‘high-volume ‘ shooters, Connor Wood, Kaza Kajami-Keane, Conor Morgan,  hitting just 29% from the floor (12/42), Team Canada is 35% FG vs 41% for the Finns.  The winners had a massive 50-20 gap in the middle 2 frames, as the Canucks went ice cold; the Red and White roared back with 32 pts in the 4th, but the deficit was just too much to overcome.

Kajami-Keane (Carleton) had 21 pts/ 7 rebs, and Wood, another Ravens grad, counted 17 pts.  Forward, Erik Nissen (Acadia), was steady, with 12 pts/ 6 rebs. Box Score 

Canada has Hong Kong on Tuesday, Japan on Thursday, and Germany on Friday.   CBCsports.ca  has, apparently, dropped live streaming of that Friday game?!
