    FAMILY FUNDRAISER: In Memory of Dave Price

    Seen above working at a Special Olympics Manitoba basketball event, Dave being Dave.

    It is with great sadness that Basketball Manitoba shares the news of the passing of longtime basketball referee Dave Price.  Dave worked at all levels of the game for many years and brought his unique and special attitude to the court and was a favourite of many players to have him work their games.

    He was a member of the KPAC, Winnipeg 1 and MBOA officials associations and worked games from the youth community level up to the MCAC College level and everything in between.  He volunteered his time as a coach at a variety of levels and as an official with the Balling for the Cure Basketball Tournament and Special Olympics Manitoba among others.

    Originally from New York City, Dave suited up for the Brandon Bobcats from 1975 to 1980 and was named a CIS All-Canadian honourable mention in the 1976-77 season.  He was also recognized in 1975-76, 1976-77 as a GPAC First Team All-Star.

    Dave was a regular fixture in the Manitoba officials community for decades and whose smile and attitude to the game was infectious.  He will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Price family.
