Canadian Wing to Davidson

William Archambault became the latest Champlain St. Lambert (Montreal, Canada) product to commit to play for the D-1 ranks in the U.S. The 6-foot-6 wing is headed to the Southern Conference.

William Archambault admitted that Davidson was his leader a month or so ago – and he reiterated that when he committed to Bob McKillop on Sunday during an official visit.

``I loved the people, the players and the coaching staff," Archambault said. "I thought the honor code was pretty cool."

``I also like their style of play," he added. "They have five seniors graduating and three of them are starters, so there should be plenty of minutes available next year."

The 6-foot-6, 210-pound Champlain St. Lambert (Montreal, Canada) wing is an outstanding shooter who is expected to be the leading scorer for John Dangelas' squad this season after putting up 10 points and six rebounds per game last year.

``He's a tremendous shooter," Deangelas said. "He's quick, has great size and has a huge upside. He plays the game over the rim, is very strong and is a deceptive athlete. He can dunk on guys and he gets rebounds over the rim. But the biggest thing is that he's a scorer."

Archambault, 18, has an 85 average and scored an 1160 on the SAT. He was also considering Rice, Richmond and West Virginia.

``They're graduating five seniors and he really liked the opportunity to play for Coach McKillop," Dangelas said. "He's put a large number of guys to play professional ball. He also likes the tradition and the fact that Max Gosselin is there. He has a high level of respect for Coach McKillop and what Davidson stands for."
