Some of the most elite talent from across the CEBL will gather in Quebec City for the
CEBL Clash at the Videotron Centre this afternoon at 2:00 p.m. ET.
The game will be broadcasted live on TSN, RDS.ca,
CEBL+ powered by BetVictor, and on the CEBL Mobile app available on iOS and Android devices.
The CEBL Clash, which will mark the first professional basketball game held at the eight-year-old Videotron Centre, is set to feature players from all 10 CEBL franchises—including three from the Montréal Alliance—in an eastern vs. western conference showdown.
Montréal’s Nathan Cayo, Elijah Ifejeh, and Alain Louis will all represent the Alliance this afternoon. The trio will also be joined by Quebec City native Marc-André Fortin, who played five seasons at Laval University.
In 2021/2022, Fortin averaged 12.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game and shot over 50 per cent from the field on his way to a RSEQ First Team All-Star selection.
Tonight’s cross-conference matchup is also littered with multiple rematches from the 2023 CEBL Championship game, which saw the Scarborough Shooting Stars defeat the Calgary Surge 82-70 on Aug. 13 to claim their first title in franchise history.
Scarborough’s Kyree Walker and Elijah Lufile will suit up for the eastern conference. Walker scored 17 points in over 30 minutes in a CEBL Championship Game victory over the Calgary Surge. Lufile, meanwhile, was a force on the glass during Scarborough’s championship run—averaging nearly three offensive boards per game, which ranked his second on the team.
The duo will be joined by Ottawa’s CEBL All-Canadian Jackson Rowe, who averaged over 15 points and six rebounds for the BlackJacks this summer.
On the other side, three members of the western conference-champion Calgary Surge will look to build off their impressive march to the CEBL championship game.
Sean Miller-Moore, a CEBL All-Canadian, will headline the western conference’s roster. Miller-Moore put up over 16 points per game and was a key factor in Calgary’s inaugural season, which saw the Surge win 12 games in the regular season and two more in the playoffs.
Miller-Moore will be joined by teammates Terry Henderson Jr. and Jordy Tshimanga.
Outside of the Calgary’s three CEBL Clash representatives, Meshack Lufile of the Edmonton Stingers is going to square off against his brother, Elijah.
CEBL veterans Chad Posthumus and Alex Campbell will round out the western conference roster.
A little over two weeks ago, Campbell scored 18 points and five three pointers in a Championship Weekend loss to the Surge. Two of those threes came in target score time, which drew high praise from Vancouver head coach Kyle Julius.
“I couldn’t be more proud of Alex, and I couldn’t have been more proud of the opportunity to coach him,” Julius said.
In another rematch of the CEBL Championship game, Scarborough’s Chris Exilus and Calgary’s Nelson Terroba will coach the eastern and western conference rosters respectively.
The game will be nationally televised on TSN and will be streamed on RDS.ca (French) and on the CEBL’s OTT platform, CEBL+ Powered By BetVictor, and on the CEBL Mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
