Bergen and Wiebe Commit to Blazers

The CMU men’s basketball team is very pleased to announce the addition of Adam Bergen and Ryan Wiebe for the 2012 season.

Adam Bergen, a product of MBCI in Winnipeg, is an athletic forward who can penetrate off the dribble to create offense and at 6’3 is a solid rebounder on both ends of the court.

“Adam is a strong forward who is an excellent rebounder for his position,” , says CMU head coach Darcy Coss, “He is fearless around the basket leading to a lot of positive opportunities for himself and his teammates. I’m excited to see what he can do at the next level. ”

Bergen averaged 22 points per game and 12 rebounds last season for the Hawks who were ousted from MHSAA competition this year in the KPAC semi-finals. Bergen was also a standout middle blocker on the boys volleyball team and was first-choice goalkeeper on the boys soccer team, en route to his recent selection as MBCI Male Athlete of the Year.

A product of Garden Valley Collegiate in Winkler, Ryan Wiebe has a similar skill-set to Bergen. The 6’4 left-handed wing can score the basketball from inside and out and is a tenacious rebounder. Wiebe amassed 20 points and 33 rebounds in a game against Daniel McIntyre earlier this year and averaged 22 points per game and 15 rebounds during the MHSAA season for the Zodiacs. Wiebe won the Kevin Love Award for his dominance all-around for Garden Valley this season and was voted the Most Improved Player on his team in his Grade 11 year.

“Ryan is a high-energy, high-effort player who possesses an effective, quick-release 3-point shot,” says Coss, “his energy and effort will be a pleasure to coach next year and he will be a perfect fit on our team.”

Bergen and Wiebe will tip-off their preseason in Surrey, BC when they visit Kwantlen College on September 27th.
