Guarasci Named Head Coach, General Manager of The Fraser Valley Bandits

Former Team Canada standout Pete Guarasci becomes first-ever Head Coach and GM of Fraser Valley Bandits Professional Basketball Team in CEBL, the Official First Division Professional League Partner of Canada Basketball. Guarasci's decorated basketball lineage spans the globe, beginning as a player at the highest levels of American and Canadian collegiate basketball. This paved the way for an impressive 12-year professional career in top men's leagues in Germany, Spain, and Italy, highlighted by a key role on Canada's Men's National Team under now Charlotte Hornets Lead Assistant Coach Jay Triano, and alongside fellow national team alumni and two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash, current Assistant General Manager and Executive Vice President of Canada's Senior Men's Program Rowan Barrett, and NBA TV Canada Analyst Sherman Hamilton.
The CEBL begins play in 2019 in six cities across Canada. Fraser Valley's first-ever game is scheduled for Thursday, May 9 when Guelph visits the Bandits at Abbotsford Centre for the team's inaugural home opener.
