Battle of The Boards Tips Today Featuring Top Canadian Prospects – Rosters Released

TORONTO,ON– Recharge with MILK and Ryerson University once again present the Battle of the Boards. This event brings together eight regions of high school all-star players representing their regions in a one-day celebration of stardom.

Not very often, do we get this amount of talent in one gym…if you’re looking to witness the next crop of Canadian talent take the floor, the Mattamy Athletic Centre is the place to be today!

Former all-stars include Gonzaga’s Kevin Pangos, Andrew Wiggins, and Ryerson’s very own Aaron Best and Jahmal Jones.
