Thomas Report & Hooptown GTA

Much thanks to good friend Jim Thomas with whom I've traded hoops stories for almost two decades for his kind words in his latest "Thomas Report" which appears on the "The Hoop-La" web site run by Kirk Alfaro out of Hamilton. As many know, Jim has been a fixture on the Ontario basketball scene for over 20 years and when we last saw Jim, he made the comment that he'll probably die in a gym somewhere. Thomas has published "All-Ontario Scouting Service" for many years and has a tremendous memory, easily recalling great Ontario players of the past going back to the late 70's, early 80's. In this most recent edition of his report, Jim comments on highly-touted Andrew Nicholson, the Ottawa Guardsmen and another recruit for the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

Another solid web site that tracks hoops in the Greater Toronto Region is "Hooptown GTA" and a recent addition to that site is a series of photos and information on Canada's U-19 team. Click here for another view of our U-19 team which will compete for Canada at the FIBA U-19 World Championships in Serbia next month.
