Next good Canadian basketball player: Tyler Ennis
Tyler Ennis, a Brampton native who was named New Jersey’s state player of the year while toiling for St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark.
There are many in the Canadian basketball community who believe Ennis will be as good or better than any of the guards listed above.
Ennis will lead Canada’s junior national team at the FIBA America’s U18 Championship in Brazil from June 16-20 under the direction of head coach Roy Rana.
He will be coming off of not only a great high school season in New Jersey, but also a summer run which so far has seen him direct AAU squad CIA Bounce to a 17-3 record at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League. Matching up against the best young hoops talent in America, Ennis’ all-Canadian squad posted the best record in the league, starting 14-0 before losing a pair and forfeiting one last weekend in Oakland.
