Meet the new Montreal Alliance mascot, Alli-Oop

Not the Louppi! we were hoping for, but fans will surely love Alli-Oop all the same.

After a nearly two-week long name search, the Montreal Alliance have officially announced that the name of their cute wolf mascot will be Alli-Oop. The city’s new basketball team are set to play their inaugural season in the Canadian Elite Basketball League, which starts with an away game in Hamilton on May 25 against the Honey Badgers.

Some other names in contention were Alpha, Alli and Balou, and another fan favourite, Louppi!

In December, the Montreal alliance announced that former Miami Heat centre Joel Anthony will serve as the team’s first-ever General Manager. The Canadian Elite Basketball League’s free agency period will begin in February.
