Dave Mackay, is a graduate of Brentwood College (Victoria, BC). In his third season with the Heat, Mackay has demonstrated his ability to be the Heat’s utility piece that Heat coach Darren Semeniuk will deploy to fix all sorts of problems on the court. If you need somebody to play great post defense and shut down an opponent’s big man, call Dave Mackay. If you need to put pressure on the ball in the full court, call Dave Mackay. The list goes on and on. Mackay has added scoring to his many uses on the court. Not known for his scoring ability, Mackay has been finding himself among the Heat’s top scorers this season. This past weekend, the Heat travelled to Prince George Saturday night to play the heavily favoured hometown UNBC Timberwolves. Mackay scored 22, added 13 rebounds (6 on the offensive end), and 4 assists in the Heat’s 85-84 point victory.
