UQAM’s All-Canadian Kewyn Blain retires from basketball

A somewhat-shocking piece of news confirmed by UQAM Coach Nate Philippe as reigning RSEQ Player-of-the-Year Kewyn Blain has decided to end his basketball career and enroll in a trade school to learn to be a construction worker. Clearly this will have a major impact on the Citadins however Coach Philippe was supportive of his All-Canadian star, stating “he is following his heart and I support him fully.”  Philippe remains optimistic and believes that his remaining stable of wings and guards will collectively fill the void created by Blain’s sudden change of heart.  The new-look Citadins will have to regroup quickly as UQAM hosts uOttawa Gee-Gees next Friday 30th September (4 PM ET start) and then the rapidly-improving Queens Gaels Saturday at 8 PM ET.
