Morgan Hillier was the 2018 recipient of the Nick Blair award which was presented at the 2018 Cape Breton Classic at Cape Breton University’s Sullivan Field House. Pictured with Morgan below making the the presentation is his U14 coach, Bill Kachafanas.
Nick Blair was an honors student entering grade 11 at Memorial High in Sydney Mines. He was a talented basketball player whose love for the game was fostered by many dedicated coaches throughout his school years. He played for Boularderie Elementary, Dr. T.L. Sullivan Jr. High, Memorial Marauders, the Northside Marauders rep team and BCB’s rep team.
Nick Blair left us early at the age of 16, and in his honour BCB recognizes a player each year that not only possesses skill and love for the game but also is the best teammate who garners the highest respect from players and coaches.
