NCAA Basketball: Six Ontarian’s to Keep an Eye On

Ontario, a basketball hot bed?

Now before you dismiss that notion, let’s take a look at the number of Canadian and Ontarian athletes playing Division one college basketball south of the border.

Here is a look at six Ontarian born players you should keep an eye on during this NCAA Basketball season.
