Basketball: Better know a newbie, Guelph's Brady Heslip

A note to whoever ends up rooming with incoming Guelph guard Brady Heslip: He's going to need most of the closet space for his collection of basketball sneakers, which is in the area of 75, 80 pairs.

That's from a Q&A that Heslip did with SLAM Online. The 6-foot-2 guard, son of Gryphons legend Tom Heslip and nephew of Jay Triano of Toronto Raptors and USA Basketball renown, averaged 28 points and four assists for Burlington Nelson last season. Brady also had good comments on why he is staying in Canada in place of going to a NCAA D-1 mid-major:
"Just the fact that I’m going to be home in Canada and I'm going to be an impact player right away and be able to start. I’m going to be able to do what I want to do for five years as opposed to learning the ropes down there for two years and getting my two years to play. That was a major factor in me wanting to stay."
Greg Layson also profiled Brady Heslip last month.
