Men's basketball additions for 08/09

April 17th, 2008

Malaspina Men's Basketball has added some size for the upcoming season. Head coach Tony Bryce is pleased to announce the commitments of:
Joel Bron, Fraser Thompson, Jason McKinnon and Blake Mansbridge.
6'6" forward Joel Bron. Joel will be transfering from Columbia Bible College and entering his 4th year.
Joel is long, and very athletic for his size. Scoring inside and out, Joel averaged 15 points and 6 boards this past season. We are thrilled with Joel's addition.

6'6" forward Fraser Thompson via Australia. Fraser will add some much needed toughness and rebounding to the M's. He has played a little Aussie rules football in his day, so he will bang and compete. A great leaper and athlete, we are excited for his arrival.

6'8" post Jason McKinnon. Jason rebounds, blocks shots, scores when needed, and flat out plays hard. A former Cowichan product, Mackinnon will be returning to the Island. He will play a key role for us next season, and for years to come. A great addition.

6'1" guard Blake Mansbridge. Blake will be a graduate from Dover Bay Secondary this coming June. Blake can really shoot that ball and that is the roll we expect to put him in. He is a quality player, an outstanding student, and a fantastic young man.

W e are very excited to add this group to a solid returning core. However, there are still things in the works and we hope to continue to strengthen our roster for the upcoming season.
