Peddie, a Windsor alum, helped Lancers men's hoops coach Chris Oliver secure a deal with 6-foot-8 big man Lien Phillip, as the Windsor Star reported Saturday.
" 'With him and Blake Pauls (a six-10 centre from Leamington), we're set in the post for the next four or five years.'Along with Pauls and Phillip (you just know scorekeepers will have to be double careful which name they put the S on), the Lancers' class also includes a big guard, 6-6 Justin Wiltshire, who helped the Pickering Trojans win the OFSAA quad-A boys basketball banner in 2008.
"The Lancers' basketball coach first took notice of Phillip in his senior year at St. Mary's where his game was still 'pretty raw.'
"In steering him towards Windsor and away from other potential OUA suitors, Oliver lined up a lunch with Richard Peddie, a Windsor graduate and president and CEO of Maple Leaf Entertainment.
"Peddie studied business at Windsor, just as Phillip will this fall." — Windsor Star
