In this pre-season breakdown, men's basketball veterans Mor Menashe (Ein Carmel, Israel) and Alex Robichaud (Thunder Bay) are interviewed. Mor returns from a season on the shelf with injury, while Alex Robichaud (pleasantly) surprised Thunderwolf Nation with his intention to return and play his 5th year while completing his MBA at Lakehead University. Mor is also in the Faculty of Business, and an Academic All-Canadian, despite studying in his 3rd language.
This week I speak with Lakehead basketball coaching alum Scott Morrison, who most recently was an assistant with the Canadian men's basketball team. Morrison talks about the Olympic qualifier tournament in Manila in July, the final game vs Tony Parker's French team, and offers some feedback on NBA trades and acquisitions over the summer.
In this Thunderwolf Thursday episode, I chat with women's basketball coach Jon Kreiner about his latest recruit, Za'Keea Sa'eed-El. The 5'1" point guard from Bloomington Minnesota led her Anoka Ramsey CC team to the National Junior College tournament in 2016, placing 6th.
This week I chat with Lakehead Rugby Football Club reps, Geeoh Lee and Jenna Wood. We discuss the team, their schedule and opportunities for new players to join up, and why rugby's a great sport!
We also dip into the vinyl library and feed some April Wine, in tribute of them being announced on the bill for Bluesfest '16.
