Men’s varsity basketball program suspended

Posted on Tuesday April 26, 2016

SUDBURY— Cambrian College is taking a step away from provincial varsity competition in men’s basketball for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. The College has advised its varsity staff and players, as well as the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA), of its decision to suspend the program.

“With the loss of basketball coach Luc Giroux for personal reasons, Cambrian considered its options with respect to the quickly approaching season and the difficulties it would face in putting together a successful team,” said Alison De Luisa, Associate Vice President, Student and Employee Development. “In making this decision, Cambrian is taking this opportunity to re-evaluate the men’s basketball program and our ability to build a successful team in the future.”

Cambrian College and the Cambrian College Athletics Association would like to recognize Coach Giroux and all of the men’s basketball players for their dedication to the program over the past season. “Our head coach, players, staff, and volunteers have demonstrated determination despite strong challenges,” said De Luisa. “We are proud of how hard everyone in the program has worked and hope that everyone understands this was not an easy decision, nor a choice that was made lightly.”

The women’s varsity basketball team will not be affected and will continue to compete in the intercollegiate basketball program.

QUICK FACTS:

  • The College has advised the OCAA that Cambrian would not be hosting a team for the upcoming season, and under the OCAA regulations, the College will not be permitted to host a team for 2 seasons (until the 2018-19 season).
  • For the upcoming season, Cambrian will compete in the OCAA in seven sports: women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross-country running, and men’s and women’s volleyball.
  • Members of Cambrian’s men’s basketball team have the opportunity to try out for other varsity teams that represent Cambrian in the OCAA.
