Chatham’s Max Allin played his final OUA basketball game over the weekend, as his Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks were eliminated from the playoffs by the Windsor Lancers in a 91-68 loss.

“It was an honour to play for Laurier for five years and play at a high level,” said Allin in a Laurier media release after the game. “It’s just a great school, great atmosphere, great teammates, great coach. I learned a lot and it was a great experience for me.”

Allin had 13-points, 8-rebounds and 8-assists for the Golden Hawks in his final showing.

“He’s made life pretty special and a lot easier just having him here for five years,” said Golden Hawks head coach Peter Campbell of Allin. “He’s a great team guy, he cares about his teammates and he tries to set an example with his teammates. I don’t know how they feel about him graduating, but I’ll miss the hell out of him for the next five years.”

Allin will now move on to play professional basketball in the Big V, a Division 1 Championship Men’s League, with the Southern Peninsula Sharks, located in Victoria, Australia.

“Max is a terrific young man. I know with his work ethic and character only good things will happen for him in the future,” added Campbell about his star player. “In the short term, I hope he enjoys his pro career in Australia and wherever else that will take him.”

Allin finishes his career as the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks’ all-time leader in assists and rebounds, and sits second in school history in points.
