The Brampton Honey Badgers of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) are set to begin their defense of their CEBL championship last season. The Honey Badgers are poised to defend the championship trophy in their inaugural season in Brampton. CEBL Sixth Man of the Year, Koby McKewen and CEBL Finals MVP, Christian Vital are two of the six players who were part of last year’s championship. Zane Waterman, Jeremiah Tilmon Jr, Prince Oduro and Kyle Johnson round out the group of familiar faces in the pinstripes from 2022. Cody John rejoins the Honey Badgers for a second stint with the team after appearing in 23 games combined between the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
The Honey Badgers have six players with their eyes on making their professional debut this summer in Brampton.
“Our organization is really excited about the talented group of new and familiar faces to begin day one,” said Jermaine Anderson, General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations. “We have some key veteran pieces from last year’s championship back for another summer to go along with highly skilled individuals looking to take the first steps of their journey as a professional.”
Coming off a historic championship in 2022, the Honey Badgers start the 2023 campaign May 24 at TD Place Arena in Ottawa, in what will tip off the CEBL’s fifth season. The Honey Badgers will play all their homes games at the CAA Centre in Brampton.
