DURHAM COLLEGE MEN’S BASKETBALL Desmond ROWLEY Head Coach • 2nd Season
Desmond enters the 2009-10 season as a second year head coach at Durham College. He led the men’s team to a 23-8 overall record in 2008-09, which was good enough for third place in the East Conference and a final eight play-off berth. Prior to taking over as head coach, Desmond served four seasons as the Lords assistant coach. He also spent eight years in the high school ranks leading the Eastern Commerce Saints to prominence. The team won five league championships and two OFSAA titles. The Lords’ regular season record in 2008-09 (16-4) was Durham’s best in over a decade and Rowley looks to improve on that entering 2009-10, hoping to bring the national title back to Durham College.
Coming off a 2008-09 season that saw the team pick up its most wins in a decade, the Lords basketball program looks to make head coach Desmond Rowley’s second season at the helm an even bigger success. The 2009-10 squad sees many keys pieces of last season’s team returning. This veteran presence combined with a number of new recruits will put the Lords in position to improve on their third place finish in the OCAA East Region last year.

STATE OF THE ART FACILITIES
The Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre (CRWC), which opened in 2007 is the crown jewel of athletics, health and fitness at Durham College and UOIT. The centrepiece of the state-of-the-art $17 million facility is the new 28,500 sq. ft. gymnasium. The new gymnasium is fully equipped with a top of the line shock resistant maple hardwood floor, seating for 2,000 spectators and a curtain system to create three separate gyms. The large gym is also host to an elevated, 200 metre, three-lane running track. Also part of the CRWC is an additional 13,500 sq. ft. gym. The secondary gymnasium features a curtain system to create two separate courts, two scoreboards, a media gondola and bleacher seating for 1000 spectators. The CRWC also contains ten large team rooms with showers, perfect for tournament and special event use. These rooms are used to host annual tournaments such as the David Stewart Tip-Off Tournament, the Killer Instinct Cup and the Big 8 Classic. The FLEX Fitness Centre is one of the great new additions of the CRWC. IT is 10,000-sq. ft., full of the best stat-of-the-art cardio and weight machines. The centre also includes two aerobic/dance studios, two training rooms used for sports training and fitness related classes. Also available to the athletes is a brand new physiotherapy room, massage therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic services in the Campus Health Centre. Having these services all under one roof will allow for quicker care, which in turn will result in quicker recovery and a return to game action.
