Basketball: Better know a newbie — Acadia point guard Anthony Sears

Acadia's recruiting class is going to make the Axemen an intriguing young team in the AUS next winter. Forward Owen Klassen, out of Kingston, Ont., was considered the big get, along two guards from New Brunswick, Jonathan Kamba and Anthony Sears, the latter of whom was profiled in the Times-Transcript this week:
"Sears, who helped Riverview High win the New Brunswick senior boys AAA high school championship in 2008 and was selected the Northeast Conference senior boys AAA player of the year this past season, is expected to get big minutes right away in Wolfville at the point, where he's shown he can excel as a shooter, passer or slasher.

" 'I hope to contribute as soon as I can. I want to be able to run the point at a high level and get everybody involved,' said Sears, who will graduate from Riverview High in June and study business and recreation management at Acadia.

" 'I'm going to be surrounded by a lot of really good players and I want to get everybody involved. I might not be as much of a scorer as I was this season, but that's how I want to play.' "
