Record 150 Canadians Playing NCAA D1 Men’s Basketball in 2019-2020

What a time to be alive for Canadian basketball fans, eh?

First, the Raptors ended the championship drought in Toronto after dethroning the Golden State Warriors in six games. A week later, Canada set an international NBA Draft record with six Canadians being selected at the NBA draft, which saw the likes of RJ Barrett, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, and Brandon Clarke getting selected in the first round.

Now to cap it all off, 150 Canadians are expected to represent the red and white at the Division 1 level in the NCAA, breaking last season’s record of 133 Canadians. Like last year’s class that featured RJ Barrett, this year will also feature an influx of talented freshmen led by Addison Patterson of the Oregon Ducks. Andrew Nembhard (Florida Gators) and A.J. Lawson (South Carolina Gamecocks) are also returning after toying with the NBA draft following their impressive freshman campaigns.

As usual, Ontario is still producing the majority of the players coming out of Canada. The top three NCAA prospect producing cities for this season are as follows: Toronto, Brampton, and Montreal.

With interest in the sport at an all-time high and NCAA coaches taking regular recruiting trips north of the border, it’s only a matter of time before Canada hits the 200 player mark, a feat that might not have been imaginable just a decade ago. Right now the list is at 150 Canadian men playing D1 basketball.

  1. You missed Chris Duarte, Oregon. Born in Montreal, raised in the Dominican Republic. Was NJCAA player of the year last season before signing with Oregon for this season.

  2. Could we see the NCAA Tournament hosted in Toronto? | Undrafted Free Agent

    […] the start of the 2019-20 season, there are currently over 150 Canadians playing division one basketball in the United States. The game and players that make up the rosters […]

  3. Alexis Beauchamp

    I agree with the first comment… Also, quick correction about Blondeau’s college, which was Momo (College Montmorency) and not Ste-Foy
