Small_CAN_10Dyshawn Pierre, a 6’6″ forward from the basketball crazed nation of Canadia, has pledged his allegiance to the Red and Columbia Blue.

Pierre was invited to play for Team Canada’s U17 team at the FIBA World Championship where he was one of the squad’s standout players, averaging 10.6 points per game and 8.2 rebounds.

His stellar play led to his inclusion on Canada’s U19 roster last summer, where he posted a hearty 16.9 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.

He decided on the University of Dayton University after receiving some consideration, in various forms, from Duquesne, Missouri, New Mexico, Portland and New Mexico State.

Pierre will join an evolving roster, likely offering some breathers and depth to what is becoming a strong wing contingent (Oliver & Derenbecker) .

His level of competition speaks for itself:
