    Rebel Men Ball at the Prairie Challenge Cup


    The Red River College men's basketball team dominated the majority of the competition over the weekend during the third annual Prairie Challenge Cup . The Rebels won by an average of over 19 points in their three matchups against Providence College (91-73), Booth College (98-68), and Canadian Mennonite University (91-82).

    Lead by head coach and former University of Winnipeg standout guard Sukhvir Singh, the Rebels are looking forward to a season of success in 2008-09. With over 35 players trying out for the team this year, the RRC squad is stacked with talent and has the deepest bench in the MCAC conference. Standout players include Kurtis Sansregret, Jonar Huertas, Craig Sharpe, and Josh Olaes in the back court, while down low it is Stosh Whyte, Josh Stolar, and Mike Hebert playing huge for the Rebels.

    Mike Hebert threw down two amazing fast break alley-oop dunks this weekend, both courtesy of guard Chris Williams.
