The Winnipeg Sea Bears have a few close ties to our UM community. The team’s owner is Winnipeg businessman, lawyer, former Dean of the Faculty of Law, and UM alum David Asper [BA/80, LLD/22]. On the court, watch out for UM Bisons’ very own Simon Hildebrandt, recently named U Sports National Rookie of the Year, and UM alum and former Bison Justus Alleyn [BA/18].
The Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) introduced the Winnipeg Sea Bears as its newest member in November 2022. The CEBL features 10 teams in six provinces, making it the largest pro sports league in Canada, and they have the highest percentage of Canadian players of any pro league in the country. Players bring experience from the NBA, NBA G League, top international leagues, the Canadian National team program, and top NCAA programs as well as U Sports. The CEBL season runs from May through August.
