2011 NPSAA Player Video Interviews
Published by Drew Ebanks on March 26, 2011
The inaugural NPSAA Canadian Prep Championships, with all its twists and turns, was a fitting end to a prep school season with just as many trials and tribulations. In the end, REDA came out victorious with a 91-86 win over YAAACE to claim Gold. In the Bronze medal game, Grassroots was victorious with a 99-90 win over Phase1.
I had the chance to catch up with a many of the key players of this championship to find out where their head was on a number of topics including the tournament results and future aspiriations:
Ranier Croft, 6’4″, PF, Grassroots, and his interior presence, raised a few eyebrows with his interior moves and strength. He spoke about his accomplishments and few of the schools of intrest to him.
Nik Stauskas, 6’6″, SG, Grassroots, who just recently committed to Michigan (see Staukskas Picks Michigan), made several inferrences to that fact as I caught up with him for his interview.
Justin Edwards, 6’2″, SG, Grassroots, spoke about some of the challenges his squad had to overcome in this tournament as well as speaks on some of his short term goals.
Raheem Isaac, 6’3″, SG, YAAACE, scored 24 points in the semi final vs Phase1. In this interview he recaps his team’s play and provide’s a list of the Universities that are on the radar for next year.
Grant Mullins, 6’1″, PG, REDA, was cool under pressure while down by one, yet found a way to lead his team to a dramatic semi-finals win.
