Today on the Basketball Manitoba Podcast, we have Xavier Smith.

Xavier is a graduate of Sisler High School and played basketball at Lakeland College before transferring to Brandon University and finally to the University of Manitoba.

He played for the Manitoba Provincial Team for three summers from 2002 to 2004.  He returned to his alma mater Manitoba Bisons, to be an assistant coach from 2019 to 2021.

Upon ending his college career with the Bisons in 2013, he played internationally at the 3x3 level. Since 2012, he has volunteered his time offering skill camps with community centres around the city and has been the SWISH Basketball program coordinator.  The program offers free basketball drop-in experiences for inner youth through the summer months and will see its return this coming summer after a three-year pause during the pandemic.
