New Faces Welcome Yamhill to TownJune 7, 2012 - International Basketball League (IBL) Edmonton Energy
Jermaine Bucknor, a graduate of Ross Shephard High School and former Canadian National team player, joins the Energy having recently played in Germany. He's also had stints in Poland and France. During the 2007 Pan-Am Games, Bucknor averaged 7.5 points and 3 rebounds/game. His 6'8" frame will bring a large presence to the power forward position for the Energy for the remainder of the season.
The Energy are also proud to welcome Chris Unsworth to the team. Unsworth, 6'8", started his university career with the University of Calgary for two seasons from 2006-2008 where he played with Robbie Sihota. In 2009, he joined Troy Gottselig and the University of Saskatchewan for their CIS National Championship run in the 09/10 season.
Both players will add a lot of depth to an already deep Energy roster. They'll both be on the roster this weekend when the Energy battle the Yamhill Highflyers. The Highflyers have produced consistent teams in the IBL year-after-year and Energy fans can expect the same this weekend. Games are both Friday and Saturday, 7:30pm starts at the Saville Community Sports Centre.
The Energy will have a practice Thursday, June 7, 2012 at the Saville from 400pm- 6:00pm. Jermaine, Chris, and the rest of the roster will be available for media throughout practice.
