Concordia Thunder Men's Basketball History

 

Beginning in the 1999-00, the Concordia Thunder men’s basketball team has been one of the most success programs in the Alberta Colleges Athletics Conference (ACAC). The men’s basketball program found early success – making the playoffs in only the third season in the ACAC that kickstarted 14 consecutive appearances at the ACAC Conference Championships. Overall, the Thunder have made the playoffs 18 times – and only missed three conference championship tournaments. The Thunder men’s basketball program has captured seven medals at the ACAC Conference Championships, produced 37 ACAC All-Conference Athletes and three CCAA All-Canadians: Ethan Sir (2011-12), Milos Prijovic (2012-13), and Ryan McLaren (2018-19). Current head coach Reagan Wood is a four time ACAC Coach of the Year, and has lead the Thunder men’s basketball team to double digit wins in seven of his eight seasons at the helm. Under Coach Wood, the Thunder have consistently been a top team in the league – making their first appearance at the CCAA nationals in 2014, and winning their third regular season division title in 2016-17 after a 20-4 season. 

Head Coaches: Chris Nicol (1999-03), Brian Ross (2003-07), Paul Sir (2007-12), Reagan Wood (2012-Present)
