TORONTO - Andrew Wiggins started gaining attention when he was 13 years old, Cory Joseph was a starter nearly from the day he got to Pickering Collegiate and most top Canadian prospects become well-known early on in their high school tenures. The days of top Canuck talent sneaking up on people seems to be over.

Or not.

Not when the likes of Isiaha Mike are out there.

The 17-year-old Scarborough native beat out 59 other participants from six different countries, to win MVP at the Americas Team Camp at Ryerson this week.

No big surprise right, seeing as Mike was invited in the first place? Well, considering he has only been facing top competition for a few months now, it was a rather large stunner.

“For the past couple of years I haven’t played any high school basketball actually,” Mike explained to the Sun on Wednesday, before taking part in the event’s all-star game.
