A Grade 12 basketball player at Notre Dame College in Wilcox will be showcased in a game featuring Canada’s best in Toronto Monday.
Jashon Henry will take part in the Biosteel All-Canadian game making the Saskatoon native the first Saskatchewan player to ever take part in the game that will be witnessed by many coaches and scouts in both Canada and the US.
Henry, who averaged over 28 points a game for the Hounds this year while being named MVP in his league, says he is hoping to take a few things away from the experience as he continues on his road to what he hopes will end up with him playing in the NBA.
“I know a lot of people playing in the game already, but it will be a chance to meet some new guys and do my thing in front of a lot of scouts.” Henry said. ” I have some Division 1 NCAA offers on the table, but I haven’t made up my mind yet as to what the future holds. I just want to make the most of the opportunity.”
In the recent NCAA men’s basketball championship, there were 22 Canadians in the tournament with many of them having played in this game.
