Saint Leo University To Host Training Camp For Toronto Raptors

ST. LEO, FL — Saint Leo University announced the Toronto Raptors will use the university’s Marion Bowman Activities Center as the site of their 2020-21 pre-season training camp.

The Bowman Center, the permanent home of the Saint Leo Lions NCAA Division II basketball teams, has been unable to welcome many outside visitors since coronavirus precautions forced a postponement of competitive college play.

The Raptors are not able to play in Toronto due to Canada-U.S. border restrictions regarding the coronavirus and made the decision to temporarily relocate to Tampa. The Raptors will use Saint Leo University facilities through Dec. 11 as they prepare for the NBA regular season.

“We are excited to host the Toronto Raptors as they prepare for the start of their 2020-21 season,” said Saint Leo University Athletic Director Francis X. Reidy. “We are thrilled the Bowman Center can be ‘We the South’ for a few weeks while

St. Leo University ready to host NBA’s Raptors for training camp

ST. LEO, Fla. — St. Leo University is all set to host a training camp for the Toronto Raptors.

It turns out St. Leo’s basketball coach Lance Randall’s friendship with Raptors coach Nick Nurse goes back 20 years when both coached in Europe.

Raptors officials visited the small campus near Dade City and liked what they saw.

“We have a unique setting. I think we fit with what a head coach would want for a training camp. We are a little bit sequestered, but we are close. Thirty minutes to downtown Tampa,” said Randall.

School officials say they’ve been very strict in following health guidelines and, because of that, managed to maintain a relatively low number of COVID-19 cases.

St. Leo is one of the largest Catholic universities in the nation, founded in 1889 by Benedictine Monks.

“I’m like Saint Leo out of everybody? We are in a remote location.
