A native of Richmond, B.C., Philip Scrubb is seeking his fifth and final national Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) championship in 2015 with the Carleton Ravens.
The 6’3” guard was a member of the men’s basketball team when it won its record-breaking 10th championship in 2013-’14.
Scrubb joined the team in 2010 and was awarded the Peter Mullins Trophy for rookie of the year in 2011. He was the first Raven to receive the honour.
In 2013, Scrubb became the first back-to-back recipient of the Mike Moser Memorial Trophy since Carleton great Osvaldo Jeanty. The trophy is presented each year to the most outstanding male basketball player in the CIS. Remarkably, he was given the trophy a third straight time in 2014.
In 2014, he was named the BLG Award winner as the CIS male athlete of the year for the 2013-‘14 season across all sports, which included a $10,000 scholarship to attend a Canadian graduate school. He joins fellow Carleton basketball alum Tyson Hinz and Osvaldo Jeanty in receiving this honour.
He was named Carleton’s Athlete of the Year in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and was OUA East Player of the Year during the same years.
He was named to the under 18 junior national team in 2010. In 2013, he was the lone active CIS player to attend the Canada’s senior men’s basketball training camp in Toronto. Along with his brother, fellow Raven Thomas Scrubb, Philip was named a member of Canada’s senior men’s national team in 2014. He represented Canada at the 2013 Summer Universiade in Kazan, Russia.
Scrubb regularly receives interest from NBA recruiters, and plans to continue to play professionally after graduating from Carleton with a Bachelor of Commerce in 2015.
“My team is always pushing me both on and off the court and making me a better person,” says Scrubb.
