The University of Northern British Columbia’s Men’s basketball team continues to bolster its roster, officially announcing the commitment of impact guard Chris Ross for the 2018-2019 Canada West season.
“I am really excited to be a part of the UNBC Timberwolves. It has always been a goal of mine to play university basketball, and now I have this chance to take my game to the next level against better competition.”
“First of all, my shooting ability. I think what separates me from a lot of players is my ability to shoot the basketball from three-point range, or from the mid-range. Also, my hard work. I dive on every loose ball, I play physically, and I make sure my opponent doesn’t get where he wants to go.”
“The first thing that stuck out for me was Chris’ ability to shoot the basketball. The more I watched, the greater appreciation I gained for his incredible work ethic on the court. He is going to bring toughness on the defensive end, and projects as a tremendous leader for our program.”
“The leap from high school to university basketball is a big one. What I hear from players, is always about the physicality. I have to prepare myself mentally and physically to play at that faster pace. I am excited to do it. Excited to hit the gym, get stronger, get faster, and be able to compete at that level.”
“They had a great season and I can’t wait to be a part of that winning and hard-working atmosphere. I want to be a part of a program that is on the rise. They cultured the program under Todd Jordan, who is a great coach. He wants to make me a better player, and he wants the best for this program in every way.”
