Alex Muise earns 1971 Men's Basketball Award
Members of the 1971 Acadia men’s basketball Axemen returned to Wolfville during Homecoming 2022 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their historic championship win. The pandemic had delayed the reunion a couple of times, but eight members and Head Coach Gib Chapman were on hand and delighted to be in War Memorial Gymnasium on Oct. 15 to present Alex Muise with the 1971 Men’s Basketball Award in honour of their national championship win. The award will provide financial support to one or more men’s basketball student-athletes annually for five years beginning with the 2020-21 season. Muise, a fourth year BBA student from Bedford, Nova Scotia, is a guard with the basketball Axemen in his final year of play. Pictured with him are: Gib Chapman (Head Coach); Tom Staines (’75), Terry Condon (’72), Gary Folker (’72), Peter Phipps (’71, ’75), Jon Beausang (’74, ’76), Rick Eaton (’72), Paul Talbot (’74), and Steve Pound (’72, ’75).
