The names of the 24 players for the 2019 Biosteel All-Canadian Game were announced during half-time of the Toronto Raptors game versus the visiting Houston Rockets.

Now in its fifth installment, this year roster is loaded with talent from coast-to-coast.

Headlined by class of 2020 studs, Addison Patterson, Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe alongside versatile guard Emanuel Miller and various other household Canadian high school basketball prospects, this year’s edition is sure to once again demonstrate the incredible depth Canadian basketball has to offer.

A much-need addition to this year’s festivities will be the debut of the long-awaited women’s all-star game, showcasing the top 24 lady ballers.

As per previous years, Ontario continues to occupy a large number of the spots with 16 out the 24 players hailing from Canada’s most populous province/state.

Quebec boasts last years MVP in Luguentz Dort (Arizona State) and has been granted three spots — highlighted by Tyrese Samuels a Seton Hall Pirates commit.

British Columbia also occupies three spots and Alberta rounds the numbers with two.

Notably missing is representation from the maritime provinces, as no names were selected from Nova Scotia, a notorious and consistently slept-on hotbed for Canadian basketball.

As with any all-star game, the selection pool easily outnumbers the limited spots. Nevertheless, if Canada Basketball has reached the point of cutting NBA players, I’m sure most upcoming young Canadian basketball prospects can understand the dynamics and state of affairs surrounding what was a much needed and has quickly become a national basketball celebration.
