This year’s roster features no clear alpha-dog, however Jalen Poyser and Munis Tutu, who recently excelled at Adidas Nations gained strong experience against top level competition.

Narcisse Kalamba, who has shown flashes of excellence throughout his career, will have an ideal opportunity to prove himself on a big stage, much like every player on this roster.

Lindell Wigginton, who was previously slated to compete in the Jordan Brand Classic, was sidelined due to injury, however had himself a strong month of July. The youngest Canadian on this team will have a chance to measure up against the competition.

On this roster, there is representation from Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.
