Hamdani stated, ‘it has been a long 3 years and everyone is looking forward to Bratislava and our team has evolved into a good group of veterans and young players that we continue to mold
“I can still recall getting the call back in February 2020 and had to catch my breath when the question of accepting the ‘C’ for Canada.” He continued, ‘we have a great collection of players that are also good people and we will be ready for 2022.”
Munie recalls, "it was special and after the discussion was asked if I was willing to take on the responsibility and I said absolutely.”
"He said he wasn't big on giving guys advice, but said not to put too much pressure on myself and not change who you are because of your role on the team."
“Munie is the leader of this group and is prepared to lead on and off the floor setting the example of the group in 2022” stated Cugini.
