All Canadian Classic
Published by CROWN staff on May 21, 2009
Enter the ACC. The All Canadian Classic. This year, Crown Magazine will be providing an in depth look at the most important all-star weekend in the nation–the 9th Annual All Canadian Classic presented by Phase 1 Basketball. Our team here at Crown will be documenting all of the entertaining activities that will take place over the weekend at Seneca College in Toronto.
The event lasts all weekend with a skills competition (dunk contest included) taking place on Friday, all-star games on Saturday and an awards banquet on Sunday. Our very own Jovan Brkic (blogger of “The Voice”) will roam this year’s event on camera looking for the latest scoop, and whatever else might come his way. Our writers will be blogging daily on their surroundings which will be available to view at the end of each day on Crown Magazine Online. Notables include previous Mr. and Miss Basketball award winners: Denham Brown U. Connecticut, Jevohn Shepherd University of Michigan , Patrick Tatham Cleveland State U., Alisha Tatham U. Massachusetts and Chanelle St. Amour Laval U.
Also, for those that haven’t seen the newest Crown cover boy Mangisto Arop in action, he will be playing for the Rumble West squad up against a strong Eastern team that includes past Crown standout Cory Joseph. An awards banquet will take place on Sunday at the Rembrandt Banquet Hall to weather the storm after what is expected to be an outstanding display of talent and excitement from coast to coast. In semi-formal fashion, players, coaches and standout guests will be present for an awards ceremony that honours Mr. and Miss Basketball, coaches of the year, game MVP’s and lifetime achievements.
The semi-formal will feature drinks, brunch, prizes, raffles, and entertainment. Remember, this is Canada’s only national high school all-star basketball weekend. If something occurs in your busy day-to-day life that prevents you from attending the ACC, Crown will bring it you in full force. Stay alert. Stay fly. This is your finest source in Canadian basketball. Crown Magazine.
