Basketball: Lancers add local big, guard out of Pickering

The Windsor Star quotes from Lancers coach Chris Oliver today about two of his incoming players, 6-foot-10 post Blake Pauls from Leamington and 6-6 guard Justin Wiltshire from Pickering via Lincoln (Ill.) Community College, a U.S. juco:

On Pauls: "He's got the potential to be very good at our level ... He's not going to be asked to do a lot in terms of offence right away but he has to learn to play off the ball and to rebound and defend. If he can master those nuances then he has a chance for minutes (next season)."

On Wiltshire, who helped Pickering win the OFSAA quad-A title in 2008 (well, Devoe Joseph and Cory Joseph had a lot to do with it, too): "He's the heir apparent to Andre (Smyth). At times this year, we didn't have any size in the backcourt, especially when Andre got in foul trouble. Justin will give us the type of rebounder you need to play a small lineup."
