14 East Head Coach
Igor chose to play his university basketball at Ryerson University in Toronto, serving as captain for three years. He was named tournament All-Star at multiple tournaments during his college career. He became the school’s all-time leading rebounder at Ryerson and third all-time in conference. Averaging a double-double each of the last three years of university and leading the country in rebounding during 2005-2006 season, Igor had the opportunity to transfer to many NCAA Division I schools but opted to finish his degree in Canada.
Following graduation from Ryerson University in 2008, Igor played four years of professional basketball in Greece, Austria, Germany and Bulgaria. His versatility and ability to play on the perimeter made him valuable at both the four and five positions.
Igor has strong interest in coaching; he is committed to helping both boys and girls realize their maximum potential while educating them on what it takes to get to the next level. At Ryerson University, Igor was awarded the Greatest Contribution to Ryerson Athletics Award, which is presented to only one male athlete each year. While in Europe, he spent many hours in the gym coaching the youth teams in Greece, Germany, Austria and Bulgaria. During 2012-2013 season, he was part of the North Central women’s basketball coaching staff, helping the team reach the playoffs and individually developing players which led to their all-conference team selection. Igor and his wife Jordan also directed and coached for the girls’ program at TAW for four seasons prior to joining the Rockets.
