The air is crisper, the temperatures are lower and fall is just around the corner.  And that means the return of the basketball season!  This season we have another record crop of Canadian players in the NCAA with 104 men on Division 1 rosters which, after all the graduations, turning pro early, transfers and straight up vanishings is still one more than in 2014.  If you’re wondering that is 24 freshmen (22 true freshmen), 29 sophomores, 26 juniors and 23 seniors.  This a remarkable number regardless I’d say.  Since NCAA basketball practice has officially started we at NPH figured to give you most complete list of Canucks playing in the NC-Double-Eh and we have it for you right here.  Looking at the list I’m sure there are going to be some breakout season, surprises and a whole to talk about for sure …

Can Ball Ray has been a freelance writer for a few years and Canadian basketball junkie since the he found out Rowan Barrett was heading to St. John's on a full ride. He's spent many sleepness nights and many billable hours searching and tracking the many Canucks that play basketball online. When he's not writing about the game in Canada he's looking for new basketball sneakers or searching for vintage Nike Flight suits online ... or changing diapers.

  1. Such a shame that CIS and Canadian schools continue to forbid full ride scholarships and do not take their programs to the next level; it would be great to see many of these players in a Canadian system.

    1. Ray Bala Ray Bala says:

      It would be nice to see. The game would develop so much more at the CIS level and it would definitely be more exciting to watch. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the future will keep 50% of these types of players at home.

  2. Toronto's Finest says:

    Even if they did I don’t believe it would keep our best here, they would continue to go south. Just my opinion

    1. Ray Bala Ray Bala says:

      I agree TF. The lure of the big time and free everything is always tough to walk away from. The show that the basketball has become in the NCAA is so big that it’s not even giving any school in the CIS a fighting chance at all. CIS teams are losing players to low D1s that offer full rides. Gonna be a tough thing to change.

  3. thinking ahead says:

    I’m a big supporter of Canadian basketball and wish all these kids well. I also completely understand the dream to play D1, and all that comes with it. The real issue is that rather than play at a Canadian school with top notch academics, kids are going to low D1 or D2 schools with sub par academics. The exception is schools like Vermont and anything in the Patriot League or Ivy League or say a Fordham which are top schools. With all do respect to Binghampton and Canisus, you are not helping yourself for life at basketball. 25-40% of the kids on the list should be playing CIS ball, not because they can’t play D1, but because it will put you in a much better position to land a career. This would increase the level of play and also help kids ensure they get a degree that will help them throughout the rest of their lives. I hope the quality of education factors into every decision to go south.

  4. Mr.Pong says:

    As much i agreed with “Thinking Head” on most of his points. The fact and reality of things are you will make a decision where to go to university on the bottom line, which is the almighty (Dollars). Many of these kids are from a low income family and cannot afford to send their children to university (based on cost) no matter the level of academics. So if and when a young man or woman is lucky enough to get an offer for a full ride ,who am i to judge. If the canadian schools offer at least 2/3rd of scholarship many of these kids would stay and play CIS ball. That is just the fact and reality. Keep studying an ballin youngman you are up next.
