UPEI Men’s Basketball Head Coach Tim Kendrick is pleased to announce local Charlottetown Rural High School hoops star Noah Giddings will be joining the Panther roster in September.

Giddings is a six-foot-four forward, starter, and key contributor to the Raiders in the last two consecutive PEISAA championships. He has also represented PEI at Nationals with the U-15 and U-17 programs, including the 2013 Canada Games team.

Coach Kendrick is pleased to add Giddings to the roster. “Noah is a big, strong young man, and has a tremendous upside. He is another great character piece, and we know he will work hard to improve his game,” he said. “I am really excited about the fact that he is another player coming to us with high level playing experience, and is a proven winner. I am sure that this young man will give us his best attitude and effort in the classroom and on the basketball court.”

Giddings is very excited to be joining his hometown team. “I believe that playing for the Panthers will be a great fit for me, for a variety of reasons,” he said. “I intend to work hard in the classroom and on the court, and prove that I can contribute and be a good fit for the team.”

“We welcome Noah to the University of Prince Edward Island,” said UPEI Athletics and Recreation Director Bill Schurman. “We look forward to Noah’s contribution to the Panthers both on-and-off the court.”

Giddings is enrolled in the Bachelor of Science Program and will be majoring in Biology.

Go Panthers Go!
