Being an East Indian ball player out of Toronto, we have always been a minority. But there have been some key players who have come out of the old school and new school to push our community to the forefront of basketball greatness.

Team 90’s

Powerful guard who is relentless on both ends of the court. Vicky has the power to score at will.

Anish is the complete package, he can bring up the ball, drop dimes, finish in the paint, drop a pull up three, and motivate his squad. A great scorer and passer combo guard.

Ben was a prodigy in the hayday of basketball in Toronto. 6’4″, athletic, and dominant. He won CIS rookie of the year at Ryerson

C – Honey, University of Waterloo

The man known as Honey or Baby Shaq was an absolute dominance during his reign in exhibition and mens league play. Although the 6’8″, 250lbs post player never played varsity basketball, he could have easily done so. Softest touch for the biggest hands

Manny was highly recruited out of D’Youville Secondary in brampton and decided to play his basketball at Cornell University. Manny is an athletic beast who is very coachable. He has an unlimited skill set and sky is the limit for him.
