Columbia Bible College’s (CBC) new men’s basketball head coach Matthew Boulton has his work cut out for him.
To the best of his knowledge — he’s only days into the job — just four players, maybe five, will be returning to the lineup.
The Bearcats are holding I.D. camps June 27-28. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
“The hard thing is recruiting,” he says.
Boulton said it can be a challengeto find players to match the academic programs at CBC, whose courses range from biblical studies to outdoor leadership and caregiving — not the typical run-of-the-mill programs.
Seven others have committed to trying out for the Bearcats for next year, a group which includes Abbotsford hopefuls Greg and Mitch Krahn out of Mennonite Educational Institute as well as a couple of national junior college players from the U.S.
Boulton says the plan is to have a full roster come the first week of August, leaving a couple months to prepare for the start of the Pacwest season in late October.
