2007 Be One All-Canadian Weekend Rosters

Get ready for a tremendous three days of basketball this coming weekend at Humber College in Etobicoke as Canada Basketball hosts their 2nd annual Be One All-Canadian Weekend, Thursday through Saturday May 3-5. The men's roster includes a "who's who" of CIS basketball in 2006-07 including 6'2" Mike Moser Trophy winner Osvaldo Jeanty (Carleton), 6'1" Quebec Player-of-the-Year Patrick Perrotte (Concordia), 6'1" AUS Player-of-the-Year Paolo Santana (Acadia) and 6'4" Canada West Player-of-the-Year Casey Archibald (UBC). CIS stars will be mixed and matched with fellow All-Canadian selections from the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA), culminating in an all-star game on Saturday. The two days of practice and drills leading up to the game and the game itself will allow Canada's Senior National team coaches to evaluate players and then follow up with invitations to the main Canada Basketball camp later in May. Other CIS players who will participate in the event include 5'9" guard Efran Nasajpour, a two-time All-Canadian and former Canadian Jr. National team player from Winnipeg Wesmen, 6'8" forward Dan Eves (another two-time All-Canadian) from York, a pair of stars from Laval Rouge et Or 6'7" J.P. Morin and CIS Freshman of the Year Jean-Francois Beaulieu-Mahieux, 6'5" Eric Breland (Cape Breton), 6'4" Josh Gibson-Bascombe (Ottawa) and 6'9" Doug McKinney (UPEI), another former Canada National Junior team member. As well, 6'4" Jerome Turcotte, a CCAA All-Canadian from CEGEP Ste. Foy, who will attend Laval next season, was one of the stars from the CCAA named to participate in the event. CIS coaches who will be participating during the weekend include Acadia's Les Berry, Windsor's Chris Oliver, Guelph's Chris O'Rourke, Ottawa's Dave DeAveiro and Carleton's Dave Smart.
