The Langara men’s basketball team is pleased to announce 4 new recruits who will be joining the team in September. With 8 returning players from last years National Championship team Coach Eberhardt is excited with his batch of new recruits who will add to the teams depth at every position.
Montell Montell Lindgren- Montell is a 6’1” point guard from Duchess Park in Prince George. Montell led his team to back to back BC Championship appearances in 2012 & 2013 and was a three year starter for the BC U15, U16, & U17 teams. Montell is an ultra quick, pass first point guard who will fit very well in to Coach Ebe’s up-tempo offensive schemes. “Montell was a main recruit for us in 2013 and we are very excited that he has decided to come after taking last year off. He is a highly skilled player who can run a fast break offense and defend with great ball pressure.”
Abu Abubakar Khan- Abubakar is a 6'8" forward that will add height and skill to the Falcons front line . Abu played for the Vancouver College Fighting Irish and helped lead them to back to back Final Four appearances in 2011 and 2012. After high school he attended Western Washington where he was a redshirt practice player for the Vikings. He has the largest wing span on the team and he is a great shot blocker and rebounder, he also has a variety of moves and a great touch on offense. “Abu will help at the defensive end with our help side defense and will give us a version of the twin towers when he plays alongside Jitinder Lohcham. I have also been very impressed with Abu in our open runs and fitness sessions,” said Coach Eberhardt.
Brandon Brandon Tait- Langara has also added a great defensive player and rebounder with the addition of 6’1” perimeter player, Brandon Tait. Brandon is one of Coach Ebe’s former players from Palmer Secondary School where he played on the 2008 Final Four Team and the 5th place team in 2009. Brandon also represented his Province on the U16 team. Brandon entered the work force after high school but has very much missed basketball and has decided to return to study and play at Langara. “Brandon is a high character guy who has an amazing work ethic,” said Eberhardt. “He is an amazing defender and relentless rebounder and I am very excited to be coaching him again.”
Sukhraj Sukhraj Biring- The last player joining the Falcons will be 5’11” combo guard, Sukhraj Biring from the Tamanawis Wildcats. Sukhraj played a key role in his team’s 3rd place finish at the 4A BC Championships this year. Sukh is a smooth shooting guard with deep range who also has the ability to play the point guard position with his strong ball-handling skills. “Sukh has been one of our hardest workers in our development sessions,” noted Eberhardt. “He has shown steady improvement and I will be very excited to watch his progress.”
