The Fall League is all behind us now. It's a new season, the weather change has a spark in the atmosphere that notifies all that a change is happening.
The formerly known Merciless team has resurfaced as LEVEL1. Travelling down from the Peel region this group bring a tough and gritty playing style. Led by big man Shane Rowe, hailing from Georgian College, who broke onto the NBBL scene this past Fall, averaging a double-double all season with 15 points and 12 rebounds per game. This high motor athlete has drawn comparisons to fellow Canadian Tristan Thompson, because of his ability to rebound the basketball and block shots.
This group exhibited among the best teamwork and chemistry that helped to propel them to a great inaugural season within the NBBL. Level One will look to build on their success from the Fall with new additions Jahmal McQueen, Alvin Smalls and Rashawn Simpson. The new additions provide them some added height in the front court along with additional ball handlers to deal with the full court pressure that many teams used last summer in the Advanced Division.
This team is adamant that the new additions to their roster make them a favourite to win it all.
