The many qualifications by our National Program teams this summer have gained some global looks, NEDA makes a more regional approach in its reincarnation, Toronto's Maurice Walker getting some big time attention in the States, our favorite Canadian shoe junkie gives us a look at the new Under Armour Brandon Jennings models and a whole host of pre season action from all across the Canadian college and university landscape in this edition of Canadian Content. 

Before we go into the links, I just want all our readers to remember that there is some great pre season university and college basketball happening all around the country.  Some of our highlights for the weekend include the trip to southern Ontario by freshman head coach Greg Francis and the University of Alberta who will be taking on another newbie head coach at Ryerson in Toronto this Sunday in Roy Rana as well as the Concordia-Nike Tournament in Montreal and the Eric Garland Tournament in New Brunswick.
