Jamal Murray, Justin Jackson continue leading the pack

Jamal Murray, Justin Jackson continue leading the pack

The Team Canada Cadet Mens coaching staff have cut six players, as the training camp roster is down to 16. Here is some feedback I’ve received from the coaching staff:

General Thoughts

On Cut Players

  • Jermaine Haley noted as arguably the most skilled player in attendance, with great feel (suffered concussion).
  • Jauquin Bennett-Boire one of the strongest guards at camp, has made good improvements over the last year, but must transition to lead guard.
  • Lindell Wigginton was impressive, crafty guard, youngest player in attendance with room to grow
  • Julian Roche – big body (6’10) passionate and wants to learn, must improve athleticism
  • Quinton Gray surprised many and made it further than most expected.
  • Maxime Boursiquot – finding his position

    My guy could put most guards on straps

  2. Catherine Stafford says:

    It was very compassionate of you to make such positive remarks on the cut athletes.
    My son endured a devastating concussion in Basketball in Gr. 11 and it was a very difficult period of time for him. I hope Jermaine heals quickly and takes good care of himself.

    Does Ontario really dominate that much?
