The Brandon University Bobcats have added some size and scoring to the roster.

The BU men's basketball has announced the commitment of 6-foot-2 guard Emerick Ravier of Ottawa and 6-foot-8 import forward Eric Schippers of Kingston, Wash., for the 2011-12 Canada West university season.

Ravier, a former Ontario Colleges Athletic Association all-star and three-time scoring leader of his team, is transferring from the University of Ottawa where he was a red-shirt last season. Meanwhile, Schippers joins the Bobcats after playing NAIA basketball with the Montana Tech Orediggers in 2009-10.

"Emerick has the ability to score in bunches for us this season," Bobcats head coach Gil Cheung stated in a news release. "He is a creative slasher, who scores in a variety of ways. I believe Emerick will be a very good defender in our conference and along with Pacome (Matulu), he will bring a toughness to the wing position that we lacked at times last season."

Cheung also believes Schippers will make an impact in the paint for the Bobcats.

"We are fortunate to have Eric join our program," Cheung stated in the release. "He will give us an inside presence on both ends of the floor and has the ability to score with his back to the basket. He has a high basketball IQ and his leadership and experience will help our young group."
