    Frankie Tocci and Trezon Morcilla Commit to Red River College Basketball for 2019-20 Season


    WINNIPEG, MB – Red River College has announced the addition of Frankie Tocci to the Rebels Men’s Basketball team.

    Tocci a 6’6” Forward graduated from Maples Collegiate and then moved onto the University of Winnipeg Wesmen for two seasons.

    Coach Scott Kirkpatrick(5th year) had this to say about Tocci, “Frankie is a game-changer on the defensive end of the floor with his IQ, communication skills, rebounding ability, and he is an excellent rim protector when he’s on the floor.”  Kirkpatrick went on to add “Frankie is a gifted offensive rebounder, and strong finisher on the other end of the court as well.  Fans and opponents will see his athletic ability in the games and focus on that, but what they won’t see is how much he will improve our player leadership on and off the court.”

    Kirkpatricks and Tocci’s relationship goes back many years with Kirkpatrick having coached and taught Tocci in high school.  Kirkpatrick see’s Tocci as a high character individual “ Having known him as well as I do, I can see he is hungry to go out and play and remind others that he still has a lot of basketball left in him, and I also know that he will bring tremendous value to our team with his high character and locker room leadership this season. Frankie will hold himself and others accountable to a very high standard and he will be the first person to correct his mistakes, and the last one to point a finger when things don’t go as planned.   ”

    Rebels try-outs begin on September 11th at 7-9pm in the North gym and pre-season action kicks off on September 28th when they travel to play Briercrest College in Caronport, Saskatchewan.

    The Red River Rebels are the varsity sport teams of Red River College and compete in the Manitoba College Athletic Conference (MCAC) and the Northern intercollegiate Athletic Conference(NIAC). The College fields teams in basketball (men and women), futsal (men and women), soccer (men and women) and volleyball (men and women).

    WINNIPEG, MB – Red River College has announced the addition of Trezon Morcilla to the Rebels Men’s Basketball team

    Morcilla a 6’3” forward/guard from Garden City Collegiate, who was the #2 ranked player in the Winnipeg Sun Top Ten Rankings will join the Rebels for the upcoming season and is registered in the Welding Program.

    Head Coach Scott Kirkpatrick (5th year) had this to say about Morcilla ”Having coached against him for years in Club basketball and also in High School, I learned a long time ago that Tre has a real knack for making the right play at the right time and he thrives in the biggest moments.  Having been on the wrong side of the scoreboard a few too many times in the past, I am really excited that he will be on our team this time around. “

    Morcilla has played for several great coaches and programs and will bring a great deal of experience and savvy to the team.  Morcilla can fill multiple positions on the offensive and defensive side of the floor, and his 3-point shooting and shot-making will open up the floor for others on the court with him.

    Kirkpatrick had this to say about Morcilla’s game “A lot of people will view him as a scorer first, but we think his playmaking is a very underrated part of his game that people may take notice of this season. During our summer league, Tre often matched up defensively with bigger post players and he was able to hold his own and more every game. “

    Rebels try-outs begin on September 11th at 7-9pm in the North gym and pre-season action kicks off on September 28th when they travel to play Briercrest College in Caronport, Saskatchewan.

    The Red River Rebels are the varsity sport teams of Red River College, and compete in the Manitoba College Athletic Conference (MCAC) and the Northern intercollegiate Athletic Conference(NIAC).
