Basketball: Lancers lose guard to lacrosse

Presumably those in the know knew already, but Windsor has lost guard Steve Priolo to another sport, lacrosse. Granted, with another big guard, 6-foot-6 Justin Wiltshire, transferring in, coach Chris Oliver has covered his tracks.

The St. Catharines Standard reported that the 6-foot-5 Priolo has quit basketball, opting to focus on lacrosse, where he's playing Junior A with the St. Catharines Athletics.
"I got a scholarship for basketball and didn't work out, but it was an easy transition back to lacrosse. It’s the same sport defensivley except lacrosse is more fun because you can hit."
Priolo averaged 3.8 points and 2.6 points in 14 OUA games last season. You can hardly fault him for switching sports. You only get to be young, fit and 20 once.

(Two lacrosse posts in one 24-hour news cycle has got to be a record.)

  1. I hope Windsor basketball doesnt get a reputation of a program that only cares about winning and turns over players as soon as it figures it can get a better one.
