Today, on the Basketball Manitoba Podcast, we have Dan Becker.


He graduated from Fort Richmond Collegiate and played college basketball at St. Joseph’s University before transferring to the University of Colorado.  He then went on a 12-year journey through the professional ranks, playing in Europe, Asia, and Australia and back home in Canada with the Winnipeg Thunder and Winnipeg Cyclone pro teams. He also had the opportunity to try out for the NBA with the Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets.


He also represented Canada on the National stage at the World University Games and Jones Cups in Taipei, where he notably won a Silver Medal facing the United States.


After playing, he stepped back into the Manitoba basketball community as a coach, spending time at the University, Provincial Team, high school, and club levels. He is currently the Technical Director at Basketball Manitoba, a position he’s held for 13  years.


Other notable achievements include… 

  • Big Eight Conference Select Team member in 1988.

  • Manitoba Basketball Hall of Fame member Class of 2013.

  • Gold Medal coach at the 2014 National Championship for the 17U Male Provincial Team.
