Grandy Glaze goes from chilly to Chile
2019-01-03
by Randy Pascal

The veteran on court presence of Grandy Glaze might not be easily replaced by management of the Sudbury Five.

But the personality and character that the "larger than life" 6'6" forward provided for a team looking to make a footprint in the local sports community is absolutely irreplaceable.

A 26 year old native of North York has signed on with C.D. Los Leones Quilpué of the Liga Nacional de Basquetbol de Chile, opting to finish the 2018-2019 season in South America.

"From day one, Grandy has been an incredible professional and an invaluable asset to our inaugural season," noted Vice-President of Basketball Operations Bob Johnston in a team-issued statement yesterday.

"His dedication to the growth of the game, and his engagement with the fans here in the Greater Sudbury community will be dearly missed, as he takes the next step in his professional career."

An absolute warrior in the paint, Glaze was leading the NBL in rebounds, averaging 11.6/game, also sitting fourth on the team in scoring at 13.9 points per game. "There's no doubt in my mind that Grandy would have been a favourite for the Canadian of the Year and Sixth Man of the Year awards this season," noted Sudbury head coach Logan Stutz.

"Although it's tough to see Grandy depart, we're happy for him, knowing that he's progressing his professional career and moving on to the next level." That said, one would expect that Stutz and company will act quickly to find a replacement on the inside, possibly even prior to the team's next game, this Friday night at home opposite the London Lightning.

With a record of 8-8, the Five are looking to snap a three game losing skid and remain within striking distance of both the St John's Edge (8-6) and the K-W Titans (6-5).
