The Canadian Elite Basketball League revealed its first and second all-star and All-Canadian teams Thursday (Sept. 9), with three Fraser Valley Bandits earning selections.
The Bandits didn’t land anyone on the first all-star team, but two were named to the second all-star squad.
Fraser Valley forward Brandon Gilbeck averaged 8.1 rebounds and a league-leading 2.7 blocks during the 2021 season and captured the league’s Defensive Player of the Year award. Teammate Alex Campbell, a guard, was the CEBL’s top three-point shooter, draining a league-high 52 three-pointers.
Campbell, hailing from Brampton, Ontario, was also named to the All-Canadian crew along with Bandits forward and Toronto product Shaquille Keith. Keith was the runner-up for the CEBL’s Sixth Man of the Year award, averaging 12 points and 2.9 assists per game, while shooting 47.8 per cent from the field.
Teams were determined in a vote by the league’s coaches, general managers, team presidents, broadcasters, and internal media personnel.
