June 19, 2020

The Canadian basketball scene will have a new look for 2021. Over the last 10 years, Prep basketball has evolved and changed the landscape, playing an integral role in the overall growth of high school basketball. Both the National Junior Circuit (NJC) and National Senior Circuit (NSC) have successfully brought the country together using their successful circuit model and attracting 60+ teams from across the country.

In response to the increasing demand and appetite for elite-level competition and the desire to develop our talent in Canada, the NATIONAL SENIOR CIRCUIT PLATINUM (NSC Platinum) circuit will build on this success of their affiliated circuits and seek to include all the top Prep programs in Canada. The NSC PLATINUM has lofty ambitions and will be looking to include Prep programs from the U.S.A. as well. 

2021 NSC PLATINUM Session dates:

January 8-10 – Ridley College (St. Catharine’s, ON)

February 19-21 – CTA (Ottawa, ON)

March 12-14 – TRC (Brantford, ON)

April 9-11 – TBD (GTA)

The NSC PLATINUM will be the premium circuit to showcase top Prep programs from across Canada and the U.S. It will be a platform where the best players can compete against their peers at an exceedingly high level. The games will be streamed with commentary and high-quality scouting and evaluation. It will host (3) preliminary weekends starting in January 2021 and will culminate with the NSC PLATINUM National Championship tournament in April 2021. 

The NSC PLATINUM will be announcing programs over the coming weeks.

NSC PLATINUM Board of Directors include:

Tony House: NSC PLATINUM Founder – Canada Topflight Academy

Drew Ebanks: NSC PLATINUM Commissioner – On Point Basketball

Leo Rautins: Former NBA 1st round draft pick, NBA Analyst

Curt McLean: CM Sports Tours

Daron Leonard: Founder – Northstar Preparatory

The NSC PLATINUM weekend events will become a staple and standard so that student-athletes can compete against elite competition and amass the exposure necessary to attract attention from top NCAA, U-Sports and CCAA programs.

Quotes:

“Drew and I are excited to champion the NSC PLATINUM circuit. Over the last couple of years we collaborated to launch the NJC and NSC and have successfully established them as the top Junior and Senior High School circuits in the country. The growth of basketball in Canada has been phenomenal and we are confident that the NSC PLATINUM will attract and showcase some of the best basketball talent in North America.”   

–  Tony House, NJC/NSC/NSC PLATINUM Founder 

“I’m thrilled to play a major role in the NSC PLATINUM and also collaborating with so many influential basketball people in our community.

Jamaican Senior Men’s National team looks to qualify for the 2024 France Olympic Games through ‘Jamaica Basketball Project’

0

The Jamaica National Basketball Team has set a goal, and it’s one of an historic nature.  

Since the day Head Coach Rick Turner was hired in 2019, he has made it clear that the program has a renewed focus… the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad in Paris, France in 2024. 

Many of the pieces to reach that goal are in place. The one component holding the program back is funding.  

To that end, Team Jamaica has created a 501c3 non-profit organization in the US called the Jamaica Basketball Project. The intent is to acquire funding outside of Jamaica, focusing mostly – but not exclusively – on the US and Canada to enable both Men’s and Women’s teams to compete at the highest level. 

Unfortunately, when COVID hit, the brakes were put on any launch of a #paris2024 funding campaign and “The Project” has been waiting for the right time to launch that drive in earnest. 

Finally, that time has come. 

Since the Jamaica National Team is attempting to make history, what better way to kick off a funding campaign than with an historic event? And as such, on October 23-24th, at 20:24 Paris local time (2:24edt/11:24pdt), we will be announcing our presence to the world with a 24-hour livestream on YouTube and Facebook called “24 for  ’24”

Throughout the 24-hours of this historic event, there will be hosts from across the US and Canada, as well as around the world, doing special interviews and having conversations with a variety of interesting guests who represent the shared interest. It’s a celebration of basketball, a celebration of the greatness within people, a celebration of Jamaica and the Jamaican Culture and a celebration of giving. 

For more information or to schedule an interview, please call Rick Turner, 425.281.1704 Scheduled guests include:

John Calapari – University of Kentucky

Dwayne Casey – Detroit Pistons  

Sean Paul – International Recording Artist

Jamal Crawford – NBA free agent 

Marques Johnson – NBA great and Bucks Analyst

Mike Silver – NFL Network   

George Karl – NBA Coach

Will Perdue – broadcaster, former Bull   

Duff McKagan – Guns N’ Roses

The Art of Hope: Virtual Exhibit Highlights Community Resilience and the Power of Sport during Covid-19

0

TORONTO, ON (October 15, 2020) – Today, local artist Ebti Nabag unveiled ‘At Home, In the Game’, a virtual exhibit created in conjunction with community-based basketball organization Lay-Up

Using photography as a medium, it captures the essence of Lay-Up’s summer program, which reached over 300 youth from Jane and Finch, Malvern, Mount Dennis, Regent Park, Rexdale, Scarborough and Thorncliffe, during the height of the pandemic. 

“The concept is to travel from neighbourhood to neighbourhood and see how the landscapes change, to experience the diversity of the communities and the youth who live there,” said Nabag. “I wanted to examine the meaningful connections that can be built using community programming in the time of social distancing.” 

Rooted in research, Lay-up’s virtual curriculum addressed the ever-increasing importance of physical activity in boosting the immune system and positively impacting mental health and wellbeing during the pandemic. 

“We focused heavily on social interaction, engagement and making them feel seen,” said Micaella Riche, Lay-Up’s Basketball Operations Manager. “Ebti brought the program to life and helped switch the lens on how these kids are often portrayed. She reframed them as youth, who are pure intentioned and who love sport.”

Over eight weeks, trained coaches provided a combination of interactive basketball, at-home challenges and creative activities, ingrained in the culture of basketball. Kits with equipment, educational resources and art materials were provided. 

“Lay-up is a great way to get active at home and it’s entertaining,” said 12-year-old Sakina U. “I liked how supportive and how kind they were.”

Jeff O

The program also met the holistic needs of the communities, which continue to be disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, particularly in regards to food resources and access to technology. Working with local partners, Lay-Up provided more than 250 families with healthy food kits, gift cards and food education resources, as well as gifted laptops to 30 families. 

“Lay-Up is founded in the belief that every kid needs a team and this took on extra credence during the global pandemic,” said Chris Penrose, Lay-Up’s Director of Programs and Operations. “We’re extremely proud that this program could provide some hope during a difficult time and grateful to have this exhibit to share the experience with the greater basketball community.”

Explore the exhibit here. Register here to join Nabag and the Lay-Up team next Thursday, October 22 for a virtual tour and talk.

NSC Platinum Welcomes Brampton’s Excel Hoops Prep to Circuit for 2021 Season

0

NSC PLATINUM WELCOMES EXCEL HOOPS PREP (Brampton, ON) @excelhoopsbasketball TO THE CIRCUIT FOR THE 2021 SEASON.

The Excel Hoops Prep program is in its second year of operation and is a member of the Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association (OSBA). The OSBA is Ontario’s premier league which has produced several of the country’s most talented players. Excel Hoops Prep combines high level coaching headed by Joram Campbell and NBA level skill development and training by Edson Jones that ensures that students leave the program equipped with the tools to take the next step in their academic and basketball careers. The team is excited for the return of Ben Ezeagu (c/o 2022), Stef Prica (c/o 2022), Ashton Brown (c/o 2023), Isaiah Campbell (c/o 2023), Bronson Chambers (c/o 2023), Nitish Sharma (c/o 2023), Tarik Sodhi (c/o 2023), Ryan Thind (c/o 2023) and Dylan Grant (c/o 2023). “Big Ben” had a great season for the Pride. This 6’6 forward averaged 15 ppg, 11 rpg and 3 bpg – definitely giving the team a strong inside presence. He has proven to be one of the top forwards in the OSBA circuit.  One of the Pride’s bright young athletes is Team Ontario’s 6’5 guard Bronson Chambers.  A well rounded player that can handle the ball, score the ball and has a much improved 3-point shot. This was highlighted in his 22 points (5 threes), 7 rebounds and 8 assists performance against Central Tech.  Finally to round out the team’s core group, Coach Campbell and Lead Trainer Edson Jones has done a great job in landing top recruits Khalfani Hill (c/o 2022) and Gabriel Gutsmore (c/o 2023). Hill, a versatile 6’9 forward/guard that has a complete inside and outside game and will add the depth that the program was missing. He averaged 22ppg, 10 rpg, 2 bpg and had a season scoring high of 32 points for his former school last year.  Gabriel is an athletic two-way lock down defender. He led his high school team in virtually every statistical category, won ROPSSAA Gold and competing OFSAA quarter finals. The future of Excel Hoops Prep is bright and we look forward to having them compete in NSC PLATINUM with their experienced staff, elite talent and championship drive. #TheFutureOfBall

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander signs endorsement deal with Converse Hoops

0

Gilgeous-Alexander’s unique game on-court and influential presence off-court joins the brand’s growing Converse Hoops roster of innovators. Since Converse relaunched basketball in 2019 after nearly a decade away from the sport, the newly revamped roster has grown to include WNBA Champion and social activist Natasha Cloud, NBA Champion and avid investor Draymond Green, and fashion-forward creative and NBA small forward Kelly Oubre Jr. 

The youngest player to achieve a 20-20-10 stat-line, the Oklahoma City Thunder sensation wants you to remember one thing, “You can’t spell swag without S-G-A.” This is the energy that Shai brings to Converse as the brand continues to provide its athletes with a platform for expression.

Gilgeous-Alexander’s calm demeanor complemented by his patient-yet-sneaky game have contributed to an impressive rise in the NBA. Off the court, he is a fashion enthusiast who finds harmony in sketching clothing designs before hitting the hardwood.

CANADIAN ELITE BASKETBALL LEAGUE, CBC SPORTS ANNOUNCE SCHEDULE FOR CEBL SUMMER SERIES
CBC to broadcast seven games nationally, live stream all 26 games as CEBL becomes first pro league in Canada to return to play

The Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) and CBC Sports announced Friday the full schedule of games for the CEBL Summer Series, which tips off July 25 and will be the first live professional sports action in Canada since the COVID-19 outbreak in March. The league’s seven teams will convene in St. Catharines, Ontario for a 26-game competition that ends August 9 with the CEBL Championship game. The dates are subject to the status of the province of Ontario’s phased-in reopening process.
 
          CBC will broadcast seven games on television starting with the CEBL Summer Series opening-day doubleheader featuring the Hamilton Honey Badgers versus the Niagara River Lions at 1:30 p.m. ET (10:30 a.m. PT) on Saturday, July 25, followed by the expansion Ottawa BlackJacks making their league debut against the Guelph Nighthawks at 3:50 p.m. ET (12:50 p.m. PT).
 
            CBC Sports will live stream all games of the Summer Series on the free CBC Gem streaming service, cbcsports.ca, and the CBC Sports app for iOS and Android devices. The CEBL and CBC Sports announced a three-year partnership on November 26, 2019 that includes broadcast and streaming coverage each season.
 
            “As the professional sports league in Canada that has the highest percentage of players being Canadian, the CEBL truly is the league created by Canadians for Canadians,” said Mike Morreale, Commissioner and CEO of the CEBL. “It is fitting that our premier media partner is Canada’s Olympic Network and has a legacy of supporting and showcasing the best Canadian athletes. People across the country will be able to see for themselves through CBC’s platforms why Canada has emerged as one of the world’s powerhouses when it comes to producing world class professional basketball talent.”
 
“We are excited to bring live sports back to audiences in local communities across the country, who are just as hungry for the return to play as we are,” said Chris Wilson, Executive Director, Sports & Olympics, CBC. “Our partners at the CEBL have come up with a plan that not only adheres to health and safety restrictions, but takes the competition to the next level. The condensed season means each game means that much more, and we are thrilled to be able to provide a national stage for these athletes and the league. This tournament will be exciting summer entertainment for Canadians at just the right time.”
 
            MEDIAPRO Canada has been selected to produce live coverage of all 26 games, supplying all technical facilities, production crew, and transmission services. It will use eight cameras, including two netcams, to deliver live coverage of seven games, including the openers, the semi-finals and the final, for nationwide broadcast on CBC, and will also debut AutomaticTV, the MEDIAPRO Group’s proprietary AI-driven fully automated sports production system, to produce High Definition live multi-camera coverage of 19 games for CBC Gem – marking the first time the technology has been used in Canada. MEDIAPRO Group produces live coverage of more than 12,000 events around the world each year through its 58 offices on four continents.
 
            In the CEBL Summer Series each club will play the other once in a round robin competition. The team with the worst record will be eliminated and the remaining six will be seeded into a bracket. The third and sixth seeds, and the fourth and fifth seeds, will face each other for the right to advance to the semifinals against the first and second-seeded teams. The title game is set for August 9.

CEBL Summer Series Schedule


 
            In addition to the aforementioned games, CBC will broadcast a double-header Saturday, August 1 that will see Hamilton meet the Fraser Valley Bandits at 1:30 p.m. ET (10:30 a.m. PT), followed by the defending CEBL Champion Saskatchewan Rattlers taking on the Edmonton Stingers at 3:50 p.m. ET (12:50 p.m. PT). CBC will also televise both semifinal games the afternoon of Saturday, August 8, as well as the championship game at 12 p.m. ET (9 a.m. PT) on Sunday, August 9.
 
            While staying in St. Catharines the teams will be separated from the general public, and strict screening and COVID-19 protocols will be adhered to under the supervision of medical officials. Extensive health and safety measures will be maintained for the participants, including social distancing and other specialized practices designed to limit interactions amongst participants.
 
            The 2020 CEBL season has been on delay since mid-April with its originally scheduled tipoff date of May 7. Each club had been scheduled to play a 20-game schedule leading to a final four CEBL Championship Weekend in Edmonton, August 14-16.
 
            A league created by Canadians for Canadians, the CEBL has the highest percentage of Canadian players of any professional league in the country, with 80% of its current rosters being Canadians. Players come from the NBA G-League, top international leagues, the Canadian National Team program, and top NCAA programs as well as from U SPORTS. The only First Division Professional League partner of Canada Basketball, the CEBL season typically runs from May through August. More information is available at www.cebl.ca
