Well, we’re down to the Final Four. Leaving us with one more weekend of incredible College Basketball. On the Men’s side, we may not have any more Canadians to root for, but we may get to see Duke give Coach K a fairytale ending in his final season. Meanwhile, the Women's Tournament will provide us a Canadian Champion to celebrate! We just don’t know who she is yet...
We sat down with our partners at the Ontario Basketball Association (OBA) to discuss the “return to play” strategy, player safety and the future of basketball in Ontario.
"We love getting in the gym and seeing some of the amazing coaches, referees, and players in this province! It brings us back to why we do this job. That’s been the hardest part of the last year-and-a-half of working without any games taking place."
This month we linked up with @Phoenix.reviews from @hoops_sneakers_ to get the 411 on the DON 3 from Donovan Mitchell's signature line.
"When it comes to the traction the DON lineup has had some issues. The DON 1 used a full length herringbone and it played okay, but picked up a lot of dust and became inconsistent rather quick."

- Sports, life and culture
- What makes for great shoe performance and traction?
- The latest accessories
- Current shoe trends and styles
- This month’s crossover “Kings, Queens and In-Betweens”
- Longevity, shoe maintenance and refreshers
