March 13 2013 - Ten Men's Basketball All-Canadians have been honoured at the 2013 CCAA Men's Basketball National Championship in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Que.
Each student-athlete is selected by their conference based on their performance and contribution to both their sport and team.
Felix Adjei, Seneca Sting
The OCAA Player of the Year and conference scoring champion has become an all-around student athlete and team leader. He’s committed to fitness, achieved academic success, and the first to give a teammate a helping hand.
François Bourque, Nomades de Montmorency
Bourque is a reliable player with an excellent work ethic. He earned Quebec’s best field-goal percentage and is also the province’s best rebounder, ranking third in the CCAA national stats.
Manny Campbell, Mohawk Mountaineers
This point guard is highly respected by his teammates. After winning both provincial and CCAA national championships, he remains poised in all situations and dedicated to the sport of basketball; he tries to improve his skills every day. Says his head coach, “we simply do not win without Manny.”
Gradyn Childerhose, Briercrest Clippers
The ACAA Player of the Year led his team to a 19-1 regular season record with his relentless work ethic and incredible stats. He ranks near the top of the ACAC all-time records in points, rebounds and blocks, but still puts in extra time after practice to improve.
Ben Chisholm, Mount Allison Mounties
The ACAA Player of the Year worked hard in the off-season to come back stronger and inspire those around him to play better basketball. He’s an outstanding contributor to his team, and at 6’5 he can play inside, outside, post and perimeter at both ends of the court. He leads his conference in rebounds, and ranks second for scoring.
Brody Greig, Langara Falcons
The PACWEST Player of the Year led his conference in assists, earning a career-high 17 assists in one game. His coach describes him as a skilled passer, and unquestionably the most unselfish player he’s ever coached. “If the game is on the line, I want the ball in his hands.”
Brandon Jones, VIU Mariners
Jones’ skill and athleticism have made him a team leader in points, rebounds, assists and steals. Despite his success the team captain leads by example; he’s one of the hardest-working players, and always holds himself accountable for his performance.
Mamadou Médoune Gueye, Dynamiques de Sainte-Foy
The two-time RSEQ Player of the Year is now a two-time All-Canadian. Not only does he train hard and study hard, he’s Quebec’s highest scorer and ranked second for rebounds, proving this quiet student-athlete can let his performance speak for itself.
Nathan Mazurkiewicz, STU Tommies
Nathan was a key factor in his team’s second-place conference finish, earning a 10-1 record in games he played. He brought leadership to his team, as well as an 85.7 free throw percentage.
Milos Prijovic, Concordia Thunder
The two-time ACAC All-Conference player is said to “truly embody everything a student-athlete should be.” Not only did he lead the ACAC North division in scoring and rebounding, he also trains hard, carries more than a full class load, and does it all with a smile.
