Antigonish, NS - StFX X-Men basketball coach Steve Konchalski is pleased to announce the addition of 6'2" guard Avan Nava to the X-Men line-up for the 2019-20 season.
A key recruit out of Ontario, Nava led TRC Academy to the 2018-19 Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association (OSBA) championship this month as he was voted the tournament's most valuable player.
A native of Mississauga, Ont., Nava is a three-time OSBA finalist and back to back champion, having won in both 2017-18 and 2018-19. He averaged 16.4 points per game, 4.1 assists per game and 3.5 rebounds per game this past season. An outstanding three-point shooter, he connected on 35% of his attempts from beyond the arc.
Coach Konchalski comments, "Avan adds a huge piece to our evolving recruiting class as he has proven that he can be successful at a very high level after leading his team to multiple championships. In addition to being an outstanding three-point shooter, he is capable of playing the lead guard position as well. He wants the ball in his hands when the game is on the line."
Nava is enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts program at StFX for the fall.
