Trezon Morcilla will join the Rebels Basketball
WINNIPEG, MB – Red River College is pleased to announce the addition of Trezon Morcilla to the Rebels Men’s Basketball team
Morcilla a 6’3” forward/guard from Garden City Collegiate, who was the #2 ranked player in the The Winnipeg Sun Top Ten Rankings will join the Rebels for the upcoming season and is registered in the Welding Program.
Head Coach Scott Kirkpatrick (5th year) had this to say about Morcilla ”Having coached against him for years in Club basketball and also in High School, I learned a long time ago that Tre has a real knack for making the right play at the right time and he thrives in the biggest moments. Having been on the wrong side of the scoreboard a few too many times in the past, I am really excited that he will be on our team this time around. “
Morcilla has played for several great coaches and programs, and will bring a great deal of experience and savvy to the team. Morcilla can fill multiple positions on the offensive and defensive side of the floor, and his 3-point shooting and shot making will open up the floor for others on the court with him.
Kirkpatrick had this to say about Morcilla’s game “A lot of people will view him as a scorer first, but we think his playmaking is a very underrated part of his game that people may take notice of this season. During our summer league, Tre often matched up defensively with bigger post players and he was able to hold his own and more every game. “
Rebels try-outs begin on September 11th at 7-9pm in the North gym and pre-season action kicks off on September 28th when they travel to play Briercrest College in Caronport, Saskatchewan.
