This is great news. Cole is reaping the advantages of his transfer to Vancouver College and may now have the chance to continue his education at one of the top schools in Canada.

Could not be happier for him as he has worked as harder than any other single person I watched all year to improve. Cole was playing in or at worst, hanging around every summer tournament from Kitsfest to the West Coast Classic this year and his improvement to even a casual observer of the game is obvious.

I will go back to my Kenneth Monture argument and maintain that despite the high exposure Cole already had, he would not have developed to the point he has if he was still playing night in and night out at Sutherland. Exposure does not equal development. Playing with "better" coaching against more challenging opponents benefits skilled players.

A little different than Ken's case, is the fact the Cole also benefited from the advantages of a private school education. A recruited basketball player does not just waltz into a CIS school with out grades to back it up and I'm sure the Vancouver College education system is a notch above our overcrowed, underfunded public system and Cole will be much better prepared to deal with being a college athelete.

Great commit for him. I enjoy watching him play and he often comes up with the big shot. He has lots of potential and playing in the Carleton program under Dave Smart will help bring it out. There is now officially a VC to Carleton pipeline.

Great comment Ron...I agree wholeheartedly with you and wish Cole all the best.
He has truly blossomed at VC...both on the court and in the classroom. Nice!
