He’s the power in the paint for the UNBC Northern Timberwolves.
Dennis Stark, a forward for the UNBC men’s basketball team, is one of the top college-level players in B.C. and Canada. In 2008-09, he was picked as an all-star at the B.C. Colleges Athletic Association provincial championship tournament, an event in which the Timberwolves placed third. Later, at nationals in Prince George, Stark played a large role in a fourth-place result for UNBC. For his contributions, he was once again selected as an all-star.
This past season, the six-foot-four Stark continued to shine. His offensive and defensive contributions helped the Timberwolves hold the No. 2 ranking in Canada for much of the year.
Before he joined the UNBC program, Stark did his damage for the Kelly Road Roadrunners. In his Grade 12 year, he led Kelly Road to its best-ever showing at the triple-A provincial championship tournament. In the 20-team event, the Roadrunners finished ninth.
