Broadly speaking, college sports are not as big a deal in Canada. You're definitely right about that. There are some exceptions, though. I actually started watching NCAA basketball before I ever watched an NBA game. The NCAA tournament gets good ratings in Canada. My earliest memory of watching basketball is the 1989 NCAA tournament in which Glenn Rice played for Michigan. In the city I lived in as a kid, the CBS/ABC affiliate stations were from Detroit, so I continued to watch a lot of Wolverines and Big Ten games growing up. As I got older, though, I started watching the NBA more than college. But I still try to follow the college game, at least a bit, for the very reason you highlighted: staying informed about potential players coming into the NBA.
