Surrey, May 6: Surrey-born basketball player Jasman Sangha has been added to the NCAA Division 1 team at Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
The six-foot-eight forward/centre lived in Surrey until age four, in the area near LA Matheson Secondary, before his family moved to Brampton, Ontario.
News of Sangha’s signing, posted to goislanders.com, was tweeted by MP Sukh Dhaliwal on May 3. “Congratulations to #SurreyBC’s own @JasmanSangha_ who has just committed to @Islanders_MBB at @IslandCampus,” Dhaliwal wrote. “Covid-19 couldn’t derail his dreams or talent. I’m sure you will do us proud!”
