Ellis Ffrench will be in the lineup tonight when the UPEI Panthers start their second half of the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) men’s basketball season.
The fourth-year point guard from Wolfville had been dealing with a knee injury. Panthers' Coach Tim Kendrick, also a Kings County native, said Ffrench, who is averaging 13.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists in his first year in the green and white, is a big component of the team.
“He’s kind of like a coach on the floor,” Kendrick said. “When you lose that it’s tough.”
