Seeing that Lakehead's basketball recruiting class includes Ottawa point guard Greg Carter certainly did get my attention.
The 5-foot-10 Carter led his high school team, St. Pat's, to the Ontario AAA championship this season, as they became the first school from the nation's capital to win in the province's second-largest classification. With Carter, St. Pat's was competitive with top quad-A teams from the Toronto area, and they won at the provincials after coming in as a No. 4 seed — not too shabby for a team with a 6-foot-3 centre.
Lakehead isn't necessarily a contender, but getting a point guard who's won championships always turns heads. Western freshman point guard Ryan Baribeau came up big at the Final 8 for the Mustangs and of course, he won three Ontario AA titles at Belleville Nicholson Catholic.
