7th Annual Hoops from the Heart Games Back May 20 at Duckworth Centre

The 7th Annual Hoops from the Heart event has been set for Wednesday May 20th, 2015 at the University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre. Participation has been confirmed by all of the coaches (U of M and U of W men’s and women’s coaches) with the men’s game commencing at 6:15 pm and the women’s following immediately at 7:30 pm.

It will be a combined U of M / U of W men’s team versus an All Star Veterans Team followed by a traditional women’s tilt between the U of W and the U of M women's teams. The games will invite 150 inner city children, each receiving a free meal, a 2015 Hoops From The Heart T-shirt and a basketball to take home that is signed by one of the players at the game.

It is hoped to hope to raise additional money that will be used for a University Scholarship to help an inner city kid play basketball at the U of W or the U of M for their men’s or women’s teams.  There will be an official Phoenix Suns jersey signed by future Hall of Famer Steve Nash ready for someone to win at the game (valued at over $500)!   A recap of last year's event can be seen in the below video.  To offer your support for the event or to make a donation, please contact...

Yet with a few helpful tricks up your sleeve you can de-complicate scheduling and manage your family’s activities with greater ease.

Garden City's Jacob Penner Commits to CMU Blazers for 2015-16 Season

The CMU Men's Basketball team has announced the commitment of Garden City Collegiate's Jacob Penner for the 2015-16 season. The 6'8 big man is a prolific rebounder and defender and will look to make an immediate impact on the MCAC.

"Jacob has the ability to dominate defensively," said CMU head coach Billy Isaac, "He is strong, quick and tenacious."

Penner was part of a historic provincial basketball story last summer when as a member of the Team Manitoba 17U boys, he helped our province to their first National Basketball Championship, defeating perennial powerhouse Team Ontario 79-61 in the the Gold Medal Final. Team Manitoba went on to receive a nomination for "Team of the Year" by the MSSA (Manitoba Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association) and as the Calm Air "Junior Team of the Year".

"Offensively, Jacob has a nice soft touch around the basket which is complimented by great foot work," added Isaac.

Penner scored and rebounded regularly in double digits during his grade 12 season. His solid all-around game helped Garden City to the MHSAA 'AAAA' Final Four last weekend, losing to eventual champions Oak Park Raiders in the semifinals. The Gophers KPAC zone finalists and earned berths in the finals of the 2014 Wesmen Classic, the St. Paul's Tournament and Regina's Luther Invitational Tournament.
