Fans of March Madness will have a Mississauga native to cheer for when Caleb Houstan of the University of Michigan Wolverines takes to the basketball court beginning this week.

Houstan, a top recruit who spent his high school days in Florida preparing to step into the national spotlight of US college basketball, will help lead the high-profile Michigan squad against Colorado this Thursday (March 17) in opening round action of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) tournament to ultimately determine the national champion.

The 19-year-old freshman who has scored an average 10.8 points per game this season for the Wolverines, also starred for Team Canada’s bronze medal performance last summer at the under-19 Basketball World Cup in Latvia.

The 6-foot-8 forward also represented Canada at the 2020 Americas under-16 championship helping the squad to a silver medal finish.
