The St. John’s Edge are accepting nothing short of a championship this season.
The Edge training camp opened yesterday in St. John’s.
The reigning NBL Canada MVP, Carl English, says after a successful season last year, the team has their eyes set on a championship this season.
He says after coming up a little short last season, and the turning point, game one overtime loss to the London Lightning in the division finals, now there is nothing to do but build on that and win a championship.
Teammates Jarryn Skeete, and newcomer Maurice Jones, reiterated what their leader had to say.
They say it is championship or bust this season.
The St. John’s Edge get their sophomore season underway at the Mile One Centre on Friday, November 23 against the Moncton Magic.

Meanwhile, Carl English, who was the team’s interim general manager over the summer, says they went with a smaller, 14-man roster for training camp this year to save costs, and get ahead of the game.
There will be some change, but they didn’t want to bring in 30 players and raise costs, so they did their work early and selected the players the need for their system.
