Handy Disanka commits to X-Men Basketball program

Antigonish, NS - StFX X-Men basketball head coach Steve Konchalski is excited to announce the commitment of 6'9" forward Handy Disanka to the roster for the 2020-21 season.

A native of Brossard, Que., Disanka played the past four years at Champlain Saint-Lambert CEGEP under Coach Dan Martin. He had a breakout year this past season, averaging 18 points per game and nine rebounds per game on 54% shooting from the floor, along with being selected as a CEGEP league all-star.

"Handy will give us added size, as well as being a significant physical presence inside," notes X-Men head coach Steve Konchalski. "He will secure the X-Men inside game for years to come."

Disanka will enter the Bachelor of Arts program at StFX in September. He joins previously announced X-Men recruits guard/forward Jeremiah Usiosefe (Hamilton, ON) and guard Gatluak James (Windsor, ON).

The X-Men were finalists at the AUS championship this past season and will be hosting the U SPORTS national championship at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax in March, 2021.
