A first serious step towards the start of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) and the Fraser Valley Bandits was announced today at a press conference at the Shark Club in downtown Vancouver. Peter Guarasci, a former Canadian Men’s National Team player and former head coach of the UBCO Heat, will be the team’s first Head Coach and General Manager.
“I think the opportunity was too good to pass up” said Guarasci on what attracted him to the role. “There’s amazing people behind this league and I think it has a real chance to go somewhere. The opportunity to be a part of it in its inaugural season was far too good to pass up.
