Nathaniel Timm 6’8” C (Maple, ON/Maple; redshirted last year)

It is always a safe bet to project Carleton as the favourites in the East, considering they have won the last 8 regular season titles and return plenty of firepower to the roster from last year’s CIS Semifinalists. While All-Canadian centre Kevin McCleery leaves a hole in the frontcourt as a reliable go-to-guy on offence, the Ravens will depend on multiple scoring options and an energetic team defence. All-East Rookie Tyson Hinz and veteran Aaron Chapman know they are expected to play with a more physical edge on both ends, as the early season competition against Division 1 teams saw the Ravens bullied inside. Second Team All-East selection Elliott Thompson is an emotional leader that can score, while lockdown defender Cole Hobin will look to become more of a force on offence. An offseason highlight for head coach Dave Smart was winning a recruiting battle between several Division 1 programs to land the U18 National Team’s starting combo guard, Phil Scrubb. With his abilities to shoot from the outside, read defences as a lead guard, and his overall speed at both ends of the floor, he might very well end up as the top rookie in the CIS by season’s end.

2. RYERSON

10-12 (5th)

Jahmal Jones 6’0” PG 1st (Mississauga, ON/Mississauga)
Bjorn Michaelsen 6’7” PF 1st (Montreal, QC/Champlain-St. Lambert)

When Ryerson hired head coach Roy Rana in the summer of ‘09, there was an expectation that the Rams would eventually become a contender in the East. With his first recruiting class, Coach Rana has put his first stamp on the program’s future with eight additions, and it is already looking very bright. While the departure of All-Canadian & CIS scoring champion Boris Bakovic appears to be a major loss, don’t forget that Lakehead’s scoring star Kiraan Posey left after the 2008-09 season and their conference record jumped from 6-16 to 17-5 in 2009-10. After starting point guard Josh Budd did not return to the team last January, the need for a true impact point guard was a priority. The addition of Jahmal Jones, an athletic penetrator that can really pass, more than fulfills that need. Blue-chip wings Ola Adegboruwa, Jordon Gauthier, and the new athleticism up front (see Michaelsen, Pryce) has already altered the culture of the Ryerson program. It is a young team that may be a little inconsistent early on, but the future is very bright, so watch for signs of gelling into a serious contender.

3. YORK

2009-10 Conference Record:
6-16 (6th)
Playoff Result: Lost to Carleton 65-78 in East semifinal

Starters Lost:

Expected to Redshirt:

James Choi 6’2” SG (Thornhill, ON/Vaughan)
Vlad Velici 6’7” PF (Woodbridge, ON/Woodbridge)

Long-time assistant Tom Oliveri takes over for retired coach Bob Bain, so expect the team to have little-to-no adjustment period. As one of the top lead guards in the country, David Tyndale returns as the focal point of a young team with good size, but inexperienced depth. All-Rookie Team members Dejan Kravic and Ostap Choliy were a big reason the Lions made their run late last year, pulling off upsets over Carleton and a playoff road win against Toronto. Kravic improved considerably over the course of the year as an intimidating shot-blocker and rebounder that can run the floor, while Choliy is a lanky shooter that got on some hot streaks last year. They will be counted on to keep the team on the same path.

4. OTTAWA

2009-10 Conference Record: 18-4 (2nd)
Playoff Result: Lost to Lakehead 73-78 in OUA Bronze (Nationals’ qualifier)

Josh Gibson-Bascombe 6’4” PG (20.1 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 6.2 apg in 35.6 mpg)

Louis Gauthier 6’9” C 5th (6.5 ppg, 4.9 rpg in 21.1 mpg)
Nemanja Baletic 6’7” PF 5th (4.5 ppg, 2.8 rpg in 21.6 mpg)

Other Returnees:
Jacob Gibson-Bascombe 6’3” PG 3rd (redshirted; 5.3 ppg in 2008-09)
Ryan Malcolm-Campbell 6’3” SG 2nd (3.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg in 11.0 mpg)
Akeem Gardner 6’5” PF 2nd (9.2 mpg)
Jordan Vig 6’8” C 3rd (5.0 mpg; 4 games)

Newcomers:
Johnny Berhane 6’1” SG 1st (Ottawa, ON/Lester B Pearson)
Jimmy Seymour 6’2” SG 3rd (transfer/Guelph; 1.4 ppg in 2008-09)
Luc Minani 6’3” PG 2nd (transfer/Algonquin College; in 2008-09)

Alex Labranche 6’5” SF 1st (Ottawa, ON/St. Joseph's)
Yacob Issayas 6’1” PG 3rd (transfer/Langara College)

Former Gee-Gee James Derouin returns to the capital to take over the head coaching duties from his former coach, Dave DeAveiro, who left for McGill University. While Derouin had a late jump on recruiting for this season and saw departures from last year’s team that would have played major roles, he came through with some impressive talent that will compensate their loss in depth. Four-time OUA East all-star & All-Canadian point guard Josh Gibson-Bascombe will be sorely missed. The Gee-Gees will look to OUA East Second Team all-star Warren Ward to help fill some of the leadership role Josh left behind. Ward is coming off an injury in the summer, but is now back to show how much of a matchup problem he will be in the league again with his length, ballhandling, and smooth shooting abilities. All-Canadian buzz is expected for Ward. The question is: How soon? Look for local guards Luc Minani and Johnny Berhane to inject the team with athleticism, ballhandling, and scoring as the new coach continues to mix and match different lineups of returning vets and talented newcomers.

5. TORONTO

2009-10 Conference Record:
12-10 (3rd)
Playoff Result: Lost to York 79-86 in East quarterfinal

Starters Lost:
Rob Paris 6’3” SG (15.6 ppg, 2.7 apg in 33.2 mpg)
Nick Magalas 6’1” PG (15.1 ppg, 4.6 apg in 31.0 mpg)
Pat Sewell 6’3” SF (8.9 ppg, 5.4 rpg in 24.8 mpg)

Others Lost:
Nick Snow 6’7” C (11.0 ppg, 4.4 rpg in 23.2 mpg; 9 games)
Pat Moskal 6’0” SG (2 games)

Returning Starters:
Drazen Glisic 6’6” PF 4th (8.1 ppg, 8.0 rpg in 31.3 mpg)
Andrew Wasik 6’7” C 4th (6.3 ppg, 4.6 rpg in 21.8 mpg)

Others Returnees:
Ben Garvin 6’3” SF 3rd (4.8 ppg in 12.6 mpg)
Justin Holmes 5’11” SG 4th (4.4 ppg in 12.9 mpg)
Anthony De Giorgio 6’1” PG 5th (4.3 ppg in 16.4 mpg)
Dakota Laurin 6’4” SG 2nd (8.4 mpg)
Evaristus Toby 6’7” C 3rd (2.1 ppg, 2.1 rpg in 6.6 mpg)
Arun Kumar 6’0” SG 3rd (2.2 ppg in 4.3 mpg)

Newcomers:
Alex Hill 6’5” SF 2nd (transfer/Cornell; 2.7 ppg in 2008-09)
Matthew Savel 6’0” CG 1st (Hamilton, ON/St. Jean de Brebeuf)
Sean Nickel 6’5” SF 4th (transfer/St. Francis Xavier; 2.9 ppg in 2008-09)
Adam Plummer 6’4” PF 1st (Pickering, ON/Pine Ridge)
Tevin Manherz-Dennis 6’2” SG 1st (Toronto, ON/Oakwood)

After a disappointing finish to last year, that had high expectations and revolved around a quartet of fifth-year players, the pressure is off the Varsity Blues this year. With a revamped strategy and lower expectations, will success be just around the corner? With head coach Mike Katz’s abilities to find ways to get the most out of his players, don’t count it out. The strengths start with frontcourt stalwarts Andrew Wasik, a strong rebounder and defender down in the block, and Drazen Glisic, a more polished offensive threat that has improved each year. Expect both to get more touches on the offensive end, while St. Francis Xavier transfer Sean Nickel will be inserted into the lineup for his experience and ability to hit long-range jumpers with regularity. Another ‘lights out’ shooter, Ivy League transfer Alex Hill, has that reputation since his high schools days at perennial powerhouse Eastern Commerce HS. It’s up to the returning role players, like starting point guard Anthony DeGiorgio and rookies like Matthew Savel, to step into their increased playing time and flourish in order for U of T to leapfrog closer to the top of a division with considerable parity.

6. LAURENTIAN

2009-10 Conference Record:
6-16 (7th)
Playoff Result: Did not make playoffs

Starters Lost:

Matas Tirilus 6’6” PF (10.8 ppg, 6.8 rpg in 28.6 mpg)
Paul Kovacs 6’3” SF (9.3 ppg, 4.0 rpg in 25.3 mpg)
Justin Serresse 6’4” PF (4.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg in 18.3 mpg)

Others Lost:

Dave Otterbein 6’1” SG (5.1 ppg in 16.2 mpg)
Jamie Campbell 6’4” SF (3.5 ppg, 2.8 rpg in 15.8 mpg)
Ian Morse 6’3” SG (3 games)

Returning Starters:

Isiah Pasquale 6’3” SG 5th (15.5 ppg, 3.9 rpg in 29.3 mpg)
Manny Pasquale 6’2” PG 2nd (15.1 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 3.3 apg in 28.1 mpg)

Others Returnees:
Georges Serresse 6’3” SF 3rd (9.3 ppg, 4.1 rpg in 18.0 mpg)
Jamie Weldon 6’4” PF 3rd (3.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg in 15.1 mpg)
Andrew Lalonde 6’1” PG 3rd (12.1 mpg)
Mark Ramalho 6’1” SG 4th (2.6 ppg in 10.2 mpg; 11 games)
Rob McMurray 6’10” C 2nd (5.8 mpg)
Stephen Williams 6’3” SG 3rd
Andrew Kay 6’8” C 4th

Newcomers:
Shavaan Sheldon 6’9” C 1st (Shawnigan Lake, BC/Shawnigan Lake)
Tychon Carter 6’3” SF 1st (Brampton, ON/St. Edmund Campion)
Mike Hull 6’7” PF 4th (transfer/Victoria; 4.6 ppg in 2008-09)
Eric Ducharme 6’5” SG 1st (Timmins, ON/Timmins)
Jeff Plunkett 6’6” PF 1st (Barrie, ON/St. Joseph’s)

The days of dealing with an undersized frontcourt appear to be problem of the past as head coach Shawn Swords put together an impressive recruiting class that should fill the team’s needs of size, athleticism, and toughness for this year and beyond. The team’s top perimeter shooters, the Pasquale brothers and Georges Serresse, will still be the main components of a fast-paced style and stand to benefit by getting more open looks. Manny was named the OUA East Rookie of the Year last year, so it will be interesting to see what he can do for encore. The recruiting pipeline to Vancouver Island continues with the additions of Mike Hull and Shavaan Sheldon up front. Hull will give the frontcourt some much-needed experience, giving time for Sheldon to tap into his intriguing potential. Sheldon is a native of South Africa that was coached by Manny & Isiah’s uncle, Vito Pasquale, at his high school last year. Tychon Carter is a physical and emotional player once the ball is in play and can play a number of roles, including a lock-down defender. If the team can play as hard as their coach did when he was a Voyageur, they will make the playoffs for the first time since Swords took over the head coaching reigns.

7. QUEEN’S

2009-10 Conference Record: 11-11 (4th)
Playoff Result: Lost to Ottawa 61-77 in East semifinal

Starters Lost:
Mitch Leger 6’6” PF (21.4 ppg, 11.9 rpg in 33.3 mpg)
Baris Ondul 5’10” PG (11.2 ppg, 3.8 apg in 28.7 mpg)
Ryan Hairsine 6’0” SG (9.1 ppg, 2.6 rpg in 24.5 mpg)

Jordan Kirchberger 6’8” C 3rd (10.6 mpg)
Jerome Josz 6’4” SF 2nd (2.0 ppg in 4.9 mpg; 7 games)

Newcomers:
Matt Baker 6’4” SF 1st (Kingston, ON/Frontenac)
Alex Weatherill 6’5” PF 1st (Hamilton, ON/Westdale)
Nikola Misljencevic 6’5” PF 1st (Ottawa, ON/Sir Robert Borden)
Brandon Baronaitis 6’5” PF 1st (Queen’s football team)
Greg Black 6’7” C 1st (Ottawa, ON/Ashbury; graduate student)
Jordan Yee 5’10” PG 1st (Surrey, BC/Southridge)
Evan Karagiozov 6’4” C 3rd (transfer/St. Lawrence College; 2.5 ppg in 2009-10)
Christian Weisbrod 6’5” SG 1st (White Rock, BC/White Rock Christian Academy)
Ryan Golden 6’0” SG 1st (Barrie, ON/Innisdale)

Expected to Redshirt:
Jason Dhaliwal 6’1” SG (Mission, BC/Mission; redshirted last year)
Ricky Parisien 6’1” SG (Cornwall, ON/St. Joseph’s)
Brett Whitfield 6’2” SG (Orillia, ON/Twin Lakes)

It has been a rough time for the Golden Gaels, on and off the court, since the end of last season. The team lost Mitch Leger, a dominant big man that the team revolved around for the past few years, to a pro contract overseas. Also gone are last season’s best shooter, Ryan Hairsine, and four-year starting backcourt leader, Baris Ondul. Recruiting didn’t bring in any immediate impact players to fill their spots right away, so this year’s team will be young, unproven, and likely to take their lumps. The latest big hit to the program was announced recently as head coach Rob Smart will no longer be with the team, leaving assistant coach Duncan Cowan to take the helm for now. Despite having to mix and match a roster full of walk-ons every year, Smart always made Queen’s competitive, making the playoffs in each of his five seasons as head coach. Similar to the Toronto Raptors, there are low expectations and a playoff spot seems unlikely. However, look for the “B” boys (Bannister, Burgesson, Black, Barrett, Boyle, Baker) to carry the load and try to grind out wins using their traditional tight defence as they embark on year 2 in their impressive new state-of-the-art athletic facility.

8. Royal Military College (RMC)

2009-10 Conference Record:
0-22
Playoff Result: Did not make playoffs

Starters Lost:
none

Others Lost:
Justin Hill 5’10” PG (12.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg in 35.4 mpg; left after Fall semester)
Chris Nicholson 6’4” PF (2.3 ppg in 18.4 mpg)
Michael Buss 5’10” SG (12.9 mpg; 9 games)

Returning Starters:

Simon Dakin 6’7” SF 4th (13.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg in 29.6 mpg)
Nick Cooke 6’9” C 4th (13.1 ppg, 6.1 rpg in 27.3 mpg)
Jon Wilson 6’2” SG 2nd (9.5 ppg, 3.9 rpg in 34.7 mpg)
Gavin Viray-Cox 6’0” PG 4th (8.8 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 4.1 apg in 37.4 mpg)
Matt Wookey 6’6” PF 4th (6.0 ppg, 3.3 rpg in 28.0 mpg)

Other Returnees:
James Byun 6’1” SG 3rd (2.9 ppg in 15.0 mpg)
Andre Cyr 5’11” PG 3rd (5.3 mpg)
Liam Wright 6’3” SG 2nd (redshirted; 4 games in 2008-09)

Newcomers:

Connor Duke 6’3” SF 1st (Dartmouth, NS/Auburn Drive)
Mathieu LeClair 6’1” SF 1st (St. John, NB/Simonds; redshirted last year)
Kevin Chung 5’9” G 1st (Port Coquitlam, BC/Terry Fox)
Kris Hicks 6’1” F 1st (RMC rugby team)
Tyrone Wilson 5’11” G 1st (Hazelton, BC)
Sebastien Richard 6’4” F 1st (Moncton, NB/L’Odyssee)

The good news is all five starters are back from last year. Four are now in their graduating year with plenty of experience. The bad news is these players, and their head coach Scott James, have never recorded a win in OUA competition. While the addition of former Nova Scotia provincial team member, Connor Duke, is a good recruit, there were two other impact recruits that were deemed ineligible in September and will not be with the team this year. That probably put the Paladins’ chance for a win on ice. The lack of a true point guard, depth, and overall skill makes them significantly weaker than their conference foes.
