GEORGE BROWN ADDS FOUR RECRUITS TO MEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM
Jul 24, 2012
Rookie men's basketball head coach Jonathan
Smith hasn't wasted any time shopping for talent for his
men's basketball team at George Brown College.
He's secured four players, right in Toronto, for the upcoming
season: Evan Gilmore, Cameron
Mars, Aleks Murray and Dejazmatch
Smith has added quickness, experience and some height to the
Huskies roster that will also see the return of several players
from the squad that finished with an overall 11-9 record and lost
74-69 in a close Ontario Colleges Athletic Association
At 6-foot-4, Gilmore, from Father John Redmond High, is one of the
tallest guards in last year's high school graduation class, is "an
extremely good shooter, with deep range," according to Smith.
Mars, at 6-foot-5, is a forward, able to play several positions,
who graduated from Laurier Collegiate while Murray, another guard
at 6-foot-1, is from Western Tech.
"Mars brings a great touch around the rim and is quite versatile,"
added Smith. "Gilmore has the height, always an advantage in this
game, and is smart with a basketball."
Dejazmatch, a graduate of Vaughan Road Academy, is "a solid
defender that plays with great intensity. His ability to get out on
the break and finish at the rim, along with his great decision
making, will be a great addition to our program."
