Southeast Division of National Preparatory Association Announced – Toronto Basketball at its Finest
The Southeast Division of the National Preparatory Association has been announced, and is comprised of Toronto Basketball Academy, St. Michael’s College (Toronto, ON), and Central Tech Prep (Toronto, ON).
The Southeast will depict Toronto basketball at its finest. The entire division is composed of programs from the big city, and will be sure to create an aggressive rivalry in the first season of NPA action.
“I would anticipate that the division will be very competitive with a number of talented and athletic players,” said Jeff Zownir, Head Coach of St. Michael’s College. “No doubt that every game will be a battle in the NPA.”
St. Mike’s features one of the top Canadian prospects, regardless of class, in Danilo Djuricic. Djuricic recently committed to Harvard University for next year, and represents the type of student athlete the NPA strives to support.
All three squads in the division will bring something different to the table, and the Southeast features talent in the likes of Kobey Ketavong, Kyle Duke, Cordell Veira, Jace Colley, Isaiah Cromwell-Wright, and Chris Hankins.
Both TBA and Central Tech Prep are new programs, compared to the storied St. Michael’s. Both of the young programs are excited to test their mettle against one of the top basketball programs in Ontario in recent history.
“We’re very excited to be a member of this inaugural season, we are making history as we speak,” said Kevin Jeffers, Head Coach of Central Tech. “The talent is loaded and competition will be fierce, rest assured the Central Tech Blues will dialed in, focused and hungry.”
“St. Mike’s is very well coached and Central Tech will always be a tough match up in our league,” said Adeel Sahibzada, Head Coach of Toronto Basketball Academy. “It will really take a lot to come out on top in this division, each game will be a dog fight.”
The National Preparatory Association is set for tip off in November. The official league website NPACanada.com launching in October, will include schedule, standings, team profiles, leading performers and much more!
