Stingers sign top basketball recruit from Quebec City

Head coach Rastko Popovic is pleased to announce the first signing to the Concordia Stingers men's basketball 2020 recruiting class is talented guard Olivier Koumassou Bernier.

The six-foot-four native of Quebec City is wrapping up an outstanding career with the Cégep de Sainte-Foy Dynamiques. After 16 games in the RSEQ conference this season, he is averaging 13.9 points and 5.4 rebounds.

“We are very excited to add a player of Olivier’s caliber to our program,” said Popovic. “He’s a tall guard that can play and defend multiple positions. He’s an underrated passer and can get his own shot when needed.

“He was a priority on our recruiting chart and we look forward to getting him on campus this summer and to start working with him in preparation for NCAA summer games.”
