“This purpose of this Inaugural event is to show our Alum’s our appreciation and continued dedication to their time with Ontario Basketball and our Provincial Team,”  explained Chris Cheng, U17 Ontario Head Coach.

“It also allows our Alums to meet our current players and share with them their stories, experiences, and pathway to where they are today.  I believe our players will benefit greatly from their presence and advice,” he continued.

Among the talent in attendance will be UNLV commit and NPH #1-ranked 2012 prospect Anthony Bennett
