One of our priorities this season is to shed light on the individual players that hit the court in the CCAA.

These are my picks for the top 20 4th year seniors playing in the CCAA.

Moving forward, we will be compiling a top 20 player list for each class of CCAA men’s basketball players‎. Thus far, a Top 20 fifth year list has been released, leaving three more classes respectively.

Quebec players are not included on this list as they have a unique classification process (CEGEP) that does not affect their CIS or NCAA status, and would classify them under the HS category.

That said, we will be recognizing Quebec talent throughout the season, through various coverage.

Taking into account individual talent, team strength, previous seasons and potential abilities, these are my choices as of 11/18/15.

Born in Langley, BC, raised in Toronto, and a product of Martingrove Collegiate. A two time Toronto All-Star in High school, CCAA national champion and four-time, first-team provincial all-star at the collegiate/university level. Inducted into the Durham College and OCAA Hall of Fame after being named to the OCAA All-Millennium Team, recognizing the top 12 players in OCAA. Crowdis' #5 jersey was retired at Durham. Shortly following his playing career, Crowdis took the coaching reins at SS Fleming College, where he turned around a program that was considered amongst the bottom three teams in the Canada, to a #1 provincial, and top 3 national ranking. Was named OCAA coach of the year and lead Fleming to three consecutive OCAA championship tournaments, along with becoming Fleming's all time leader in wins for the men's basketball program. After a brief hiatus, Coach Crowdis took charge of the program at Seneca College, where he brought the team back to a level not seen since north of 20 years, Lead Seneca to three consecutive top 3 finishes in the OCAA East conference, 3 consecutive trips to the OCAA championship tournament, a conference title and an OCAA final four appearance. While his teams have had some success, Coach Crowdis acknowledges the hard work each one of his players put forward, and believes the key to his success rests on the shoulders of them, and of course All-Canadian players, Neil O'Sullivan, Jovain Wilson and Felix Adjei

    PG Denzel Laguerta (Quest) is a notable 4yr player. A hard nosed veteran who runs the show for the Kermodes. Stats don’t show his true effect on the court.
