The wait is over. It's now time to prepare and play. We're excited to announce the official roster for the Toronto 3D Global Sports Team going to China this May, 2016.
The scouting process was intense as so many talented Canadian players were looking to join the 3D team. The 3D staff researched and reached out to star-studded Canadian University and College programs (CIS), NCAA, and Canadian players playing overseas to piece together a competitive team to represent Canada on the international stages.
The 3D team has been finalized and consists of Canadian players from the CIS, NCAA and NBL (National Basketball League of Canada). The CIS players on the 3D team come from six different programs, six different cities, and three different provinces.
The 3D Roster
Joining 3D will be Javon Masters from New Brunswick University, who is the top leading scorer of the CIS 2015-16 season, averaging over 28 points per game. Also joining the 3D team will be Western’s Mustangs all-time leading scorer and OUA first-team all-star, Greg Morrow. The team further welcomes Windsor Men's Basketball graduate star Alex Campbell, who averaged 22.5 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. We're excited to also have the 2015-16 CIS Rookie of the Year, Isiah Osborne of Windsor. Strenghtening the backcourt will be Tramique Sutherland, who started 24 games for Bradley (NCAA I) last season averaging close to 11 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists per game. Former Mr. Niagara Basketball and Brock University all-star Tshing Kasamba, previously played with Toronto 3D, will be playing alongside big-man, 6'8, Kadeem Green of Ryerson and former Ohio (NCAA I) and team captain, 7'0, Zach Nagtzaam. Returning for the 3D staff will be head coach Fatih Akser, currently head coach at George Brown, and head athletic trainer, Jamal Lynch (National Canada Team). Both coach Akser and Jamal Lynch have previous experience with the National basketball team of Canada.
