    Harvard freshman Chris Egi, Montaque “Teki” Gill-Caesar of Huntington Prep (pictured) and Dillon Brooks of Findlay Prep headline the Canadian Junior Men’s National Team that will represent Team Canada at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship for Men in Colorado Springs.

    “We’re pleased with the progress the team has made over the course of the training camp,” said head coach Roy Rana. “These athletes have shown outstanding work ethic and commitment to the team to solidify their spots on our final roster.”

    Canada will begin group play in the FIBA Americas U18 Championship on Friday, June 20 against Brazil.

    “For many of these athletes, this is their first time representing Canada in international competition,” said Rowan Barrett, Executive Vice President/Assistant General Manager, Men’s High Performance. “This will be a tremendous opportunity for growth and development, with the goal of qualifying for the 2015 U19 World Championships in Greece.”
