Cape Breton Preview Courtesy of Allan Charters NEW LOOK CAPERS BEGIN THE EXHIBITION SEASON THIS WEEKEND It is hard to believe another season has come around so quickly. After a busy off-season the Cape Breton CAPERS Men's Basketball team will kick off their exhibition schedule this weekend in PEI against some of the best competition in the country. Pre-season #8 Brock and #10 Laval will join the CAPERS and host PEI Panthers in a round robin format. The CAPERS have seen a great deal of change over the off-season as six players graduated and one decided to take this year off resulting in 5 players returning and 7 new players filling out the 12 man roster. Coach Charters was successful at securing a good recruiting class who hopefully will have long and distinguished careers ahead of them as CAPERS. The returning group of players includes All-Canadian Eric Breland who is back for his fifth season. All-star Paul Blake also returns for his final year with the team. Mark McGarrigle returns for his third season and after suffering an off-season ACL injury will attempt to play this year as one of the team captains. AUS All-Rookie Team Member Phillip Nkrumah is back for his second campaign and will be looking for improved play this season. Post Player Scott Jaspers-Fayer will enter his second season after a solid summer of work on the court and in the weight room, and he will play a much bigger role with this year's team. Newcomers to the CAPERS include North Preston, Nova Scotia native Tremaine Fraser. This 5'10 180 lbs product of Auburn High School in Dartmouth was a very late cut from Canada's U-19 team that participated in the FIBA world championships in Serbia. Coach Charters will be looking for immediate playing time from Tremaine who averaged 22 points, 8 rebounds and 3 steals in his final High School year. This included a 55 point game in the Metro Halifax playoffs. Coach Charters was also able to bring in a very experienced impact player, in 6'3 Jonathan Wyse, who played three seasons with Humber College. Jonathan was an OCAA East Region 2nd team all-star in his final season (2005-2006) with HUMBER before becoming a CAPER. Originally from Toronto's famed Oakwood C.I., Wyse should be a definite help on the wing for the CAPERS and has two seasons of eligibility remaining. Al Alilovic of Milton, Ontario brings good perimeter size, athleticism and a good shooting touch to the CAPERS from Bishop Redding High School. Al played on the Ontario Provincial team from 2003-2006 and averaged 26 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists per game in his final high school season. More experience has arrived with the addition of a pair of guards. Combo guard Chris Noodle from Brampton, Ont. is coming back home to Canada after two years at State Fair (MO) Community College where he was an all region player and averaged 8.1 ppg, 2.4 apg,and 1.5 steals per game last season. 5'10 Mike Cruickshank adds to the experience quotient having played one season at Humber College in Toronto and brings a good shooting touch and tremendous quickness at the defensive end. Coach Charters did not forget size, as 6' 10 inch Scott Martin who also played at Auburn High School is now a CAPER. Scott has already shown great improvement and averaged 14 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in his final season. Another post player with good size added to the roster is Glace Bay Nova Scotia's Paul Glancey. At 6'5 250 lbs Paul comes to the CAPERS as a 1st team All-Star in the Cape Breton Regional High School League after averaging a double-double in his final high school season. Paul played for CBU athletic director John Ryan in High School and brings a good shooting touch to go with his size.
