How is this for a juxtaposition? Two former Brandon Bobcats teammates will be on opposite sidelines for Manitoba teams next season.
Brandon has tapped the B.C. college ranks for new men's basketball coach Gil Cheung, a former Bobcats guard who professes a deep admiration to former teammate Mike Raimbault, the new coach at Winnipeg.
Cheung coached Vancouver's Douglas College in the BCCAA the past two seasons. He was part of some strong Bobcats teams in the early 200s under the legendary Jerry Hemmings, earning academic all-Canadian honours in 2001-02.
One can only imagine the rivalry with the two former teammates coaching a few hours apart along the Trans-Canada Highway.
