NBLC adds new teams in Kitchener-Waterloo and Cape Breton

The National Basketball League of Canada announced the addition of two new teams this summer, the Kitchener Waterloo Titans and the Cape Breton Highlanders.

The KW Titans will be led by Serge Langis in their inaugural season, where they will play in the Central Division against the London Lightning, Windsor Express, Niagara River Lions and the Orangeville A’s. Stu Julius, former head coach of Women’s basketball at the University of Laurier and father of London Head Coach Kyle Julius, will serve as the General Manager for the Titans.

Langis comes to the Titans by way of the Moncton Miracles in the Atlantic Division, where he served as Head Coach for the 2015-2016 season.

The Cape Breton Highlanders will play in the Atlantic Division and join the Halifax Hurricanes, Moncton Miracles, Saint John Mill Rats, and the Island Storm. The addition of both squads brings the total number of teams in the NBLC up to 10 in their sixth season of play.

Cape Breton was launched by Tyrone Levingston and a group on investors, and have told the press they will be announcing the coach in the future.

Cape Breton joins the Halifax Hurricanes as NBLC teams representing Nova Scotia, and the two squads are very eager to begin a competitive rivalry and give Nova Scotians something to get excited about on the hardwood.

The Hurricanes are the defending champs of the NBLC and will give the new Highlanders some serious competition in their first year.
