Head Coach Matt Kuzminski comments on Jon Bethell joining the Mariners.
Jon is a very crafty point guard with a very good basketball sense.  He has a great feel for the game in regards to tempo.....knowing  when to push the ball and when to slow it down. He is strong and very shifty, which allows him to get in the lane where he is very talented at making good basketball plays.  Jon will have the opportunity to be an impact player for us as a true freshman, this is not very common.  I am very excited to have the opportunity to coach Jon. I have known him since grade eight and have no doubt that his new team mates will be  thrilled to have such a quality person and player join the team
