Synopsis: For my latest at Vice, I wrote about the strong Canadian presence in the Final Four, with a focus on Duane Notice, Dillon Brooks, and Dylan Ennis.
Leave it to North Carolina to ruin a good story.
Had it not been for the incredible late-game heroics of Luke Maye on Sunday, the Final Four would have included a bit of Canadian content on each roster. As it stands, “only” three of the teams vying for the National Championship on the final weekend of the NCAA season will include Canadians.
For two of them—apologies to Dustin Triano’s minor role on Gonzaga—the dream of cutting down the nets in Glendale on April 3 wouldn’t be realistic without the significant production, leadership, and tournament excellence of a handful of Canada’s best collegiate-level talent.
