May 6, 2009

This is former Guelph Gryphons captain Duncan Milne. He played for five years at the University of Guelph before graduating this past season. Now, he’s on to a new chapter in his basketball career as he has signed a contract to play with The Caboolture Coastal Suns in the Queensland Basketball League in Australia. Duncan is already down in Australia, along with former McMaster Marauder All-Star and OUA Defensive Player of the Year, Martin Ayaji. They are both playing for Coach Mike Ayanbadejo, himself a former All-Star for the University of Guelph. Here is a link to a story about the arrival of the two Canadians and what it could mean to the Suns this season

Duncan has decided to write a blog about his time down in Australia, called Big D Down Under. It is well-written and informative, and I highly recommend it to any basketball fans, or any of my U of G readers on here (who aren’t already reading it!). Here is a direct link, and there will also be a link added to the sidebar of blogs I recommend. From my limited time interacting with Duncan at The University of Guelph and for Rogers TV basketball telecasts, I’ve found him to be a real character guy, and someone that was spoken very highly of by teammates, coaches, and friends.

Best wishes Down Under, Duncan.
