OTTAWA – The Carleton Ravens are proud to celebrate the selection of guards Alain Louis and Lloyd Pandi in the annual CEBL U SPORTS Draft.
The CEBL announced the results of the 2022 CEBL U SPORTS Draft on Tuesday after the 10 CEBL franchises drafted 20 student-athletes from 19 Canadian universities over two rounds of selections. This is a coveted opportunity for top players in U SPORTS to get a chance to experience professional basketball by practicing and playing alongside veteran pros from the NBA, NBA G League, Canadian National team, and top international leagues.
The Montréal Alliance selected Louis with the second pick of the first round. The Montréal native won the 2021-22 U SPORTS National Championship with Carleton, received U SPORTS Final 8 Finals MVP honours and was also named as an Ontario University Athletics (OUA) East Second Team All-Star in 2022. Louis was also drafted in the 2021 CEBL U SPORTS Draft by the Ottawa BlackJacks.
The Niagara River Lions picked two-time and current CEBL U SPORTS Player Of The Year, Lloyd Pandi, ninth overall. Pandi was also drafted by Niagara in 2020 and 2021. A fourth-year guard from Carleton University, Pandi averaged 7.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 22.0 minutes in 14 games for Niagara in 2021. The 6-foot-4 Ottawa native won the Mike Moser Memorial Trophy for the U SPORTS Most Outstanding Player of The Year honours this year and led Carleton to their third consecutive U SPORTS National Championship.
