Taranveer Gill (pictured in red), a 6'3" perimeter player from Toronto, Canada, has made a verbal commitment to be a part of the Southwestern Men’s Basketball program for 2014-15. Gill will bring a wealth of experience to the Spartans from his basketball exploits north of the border. Last fall, Gill competed in the Up to the Time Basketball League, netting Rookie of the Year honors as well as being named a second-team all star. He also received an invitation to compete in a junior national tournament held in Michigan. Gill choose Southwestern because of its feel. He said, “I feel like this is a great community that embraces and welcomes everybody in.”
Head Coach Mike Holmes said, “To get back to where we were a year ago, we need some impact guys who will bring some energy to the floor and have some skills not only to learn our system, but to be able to make plays out of it. I think Taranveer will be very well suited to what we do.”
Gill plans to study in the college transfer program and earn his Associate of Arts degree.
