Searle Selected for All-Star Charity Game

Thunderwolves men’s basketball player Jamie Searle has been chosen to participate in the 5th Annual All-Star Charity Shootout at York University on July 17, 2010. It is the only event in Canada that brings together Canadian basketball stars from all competitive levels for the sole purpose of raising funds and awareness for charity. Twenty players from the CIS, NCAA, CCAA and European pro leagues have been selected for the shootout.

Proceeds from this year’s event will go to two different charities; the Michael Pinball Clemons Foundation and War Child Canada. Each team in the game will represent a charity with 60% of the total proceeds going to the charity represented by the winning side.

Searle, a native of Belleville, Ontario, had an excellent season for the ‘Wolves in 2009-10 leading the team in scoring and earning an OUA West 1st Team all-star selection. He has been a team co-captain for two seasons and was named team MVP last year. The concurrent education student will return to the court in October for his 5th and final campaign with Lakehead University.
