    Manitoba's Ben Miller Named to Canada's Junior National Team

    Basketball Manitoba is very happy to share the news that Manitoba's Ben Miller has been named to the Canadian Junior National Team!  Miller has spent the last week at the National ID Camp and now goes on with the team to represent Canada at the U18 FIBA Americas Championships June 20-24 in Colorado.  The team will be working to qualify for the FIBA World Junior Championships in 2015.  He will join fellow Manitoban Kirby Schepp who is an assistant coach with the team.
    Ben is coming off an outstanding high school basketball season where he was named the AAA Boys Player of the Year while leading Westgate to the AAA Boys Provincial Crown in March.  Last summer he guided Manitoba to a Silver Medal at the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Last month, Ben committed to attend Acadia University this fall in Nova Scotia. 

    CONGRATULATIONS BEN!
