WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Sea Bears are welcoming a pure scorer to the team in guard Teddy Allen.

The team announced the signing Thursday. Allen returns to the CEBL after averaging 27.9 points per game with the Wichita Sky Kings of the TBL earlier this year.

Allen’s previous stint in the CEBL came with the Scarborough Shooting Stars last summer, where he put up 11.6 points per game, showing his versatility on and off the ball with averages of five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

The Phoenix, Arizona product rose to high school stardom in Nebraska, where he became the first high school player in the state since 2008 to average more than 30 points per game. That feat was highlighted by a school-record 47-point single game performance. He would later be named the Nebraska High School Player of the Year in 2017.

Allen would go on to play his university ball at New Mexico State, Nebraska and West Virginia. He averaged 19.6 points per game for the Aggies in his last year of collegiate play, leading the Western Athletic Conference.

Allen is now bringing his raw scoring abilities to the heart of the north, as he will look to help the Sea Bears make a splash in the team’s inaugural season.

Mike Taylor, Head Coach, Winnipeg Sea Bears Basketball Club

"I’m grateful to be a part of the Sea Bears and happy to get to join a team from training camp and grow into a team that’s going to take over the CEBL.”
