So I don’t really follow CIS basketball that much, but I am sure some folks who read this do. There is a discussion in the comments thread of a previous post about what former AUS (or CIS more broadly) players are available for the Rainmen to chase after.
The only person I can think of is Paulo Santana from Acadia – he played in the PBBA tournament for the First Class Ballers which also featured Crookshank and Wigginton-Downey so he is at least familiar with the team. He’s a small explosive guard with incredible speed who can get to the rim he’s got big time experience in the CIS final eight, and was 2007 AUS player of the year. I can’t figure out if he’s playing anywhere now that he’s done at Acadia, anyone know? Achuil Lual would also be amazing – but alas, he’s playing pro in germany.
Any recomendations? Any other Canadian kids or CIS players worth mentioning?
