Big get for Dave Adams and his program... with thanks to our always-informative-yet-still-anonymous Western Canada CIS guru. Lethbridge is quietly bringing in a solid class with 6'6" Coward thus far the gem. Whispers about others including dynamic program-changing point guard who did not play last season but has been back at Lethbridge taking classes continue.
Trio of Kodiacs join the Horns
Coward was said to have made his decision in February and officially signed last Wednesday; he apparently very much enjoyed his time in Calgary, where he averaged 6 ppg as a freshman on a veteran laden team that made the CIS National semi-finals, and had a difficult time moving on but there appear to be many pluses for him at Lethbridge.
Coward (3rd Year) and 6'7" Derek Waldner (4th Year) should make up a dynamic forward combination for the 'Horns. Add in the ever-developing 6'10" Nico Kovac (3rd Year), who gives the 'Horns another credible CIS post and 6'5" Brandon Thomas-James, a solid defender, including in the post and the Horns are building a very strong front line. Two Lethbridge starters from this past season: 6'5" Randy Davis and 6'3" Danhue Lawrence, completed their fifth and final seasons of eligibility.
The Horns have now signed four Lethbridge College Kodiaks including Coward, Morgan Duce (rising 3rd Year shooting guard who led the ACAC in scoring this season with over 20 ppg), true point Dallon Martin - a high school teammate of Coward - and 6'2" wing/point Logan Reiter, who committed in December.
The Kodiacs have had a great year at 17-1, but got whacked by NAIT in the ACAC final last week after soundly defeating NAIT at home in the regular season. The Kodiacs won a wildcard bid to the CCAA nationals at Durham College in Oshawa and will meet UNBC in the first round.
