Bronze Medal: Burlington Panthers 74 St. Catharines CYO Rebels 58
Gold Medal: Whitby Wildcats 70 Ottawa Guardsmen 67
MVP from this tournament without a doubt. Had an offensive outburst to match Presutti’s in the semi-final game against Burlington with 42 pts. 3 point range is getting deeper, opponents beware, Edwards is pushing for big things and has a great future ahead of him.
Adam Presutti 6’2 CG Burlington Panthers 2011
Really brought his game to another level this weekend. Proved hard work pays off, really working on being a point guard for next season. Got his teammates involved, created well off the dribble for himself and dished off for easy assists to others. Had a career high 36 point outburst in a nice duel with Justin Edwards.
Justin Shaver 6’7 PF Ottawa Guardsmen 2011
Can’t find a harder working big man in this province. Shaver is a coaches nightmare both offensively and defensively. Poses multiple threats but mainly just out works his opponents and drains them mentally and physically. Needs to work on his jumper in order to add to his already long offensive repertoire.
Sean Stoqua 5’10 PG Ottawa Guardsmen 2011
Playmaker at it’s best. Mr. Clutch in a hard fought quarterfinal win against kingston. Acadia has a real gem with this guy, hard working, competitive, great ball handler and ever better passer. When his shot is dropping he is a triple headed monster, beat you on the bounce, with the pass and with the shot.
Solid play this weekend, beautiful touch around the basketball and soft hands for a big guy. His passing game is really complimenting him well.
Pat Pilato 6’1 G St. Catharines CYO 2013
Solid play this weekend. Hit some deep 3′s and finishes very well around the basket. Mr. Niagara Basketball is consistent with and without the ball and makes opponents pay when they go under screens. Led his team to a solid 4th place finish among the provinces best this weekend.
Connor Wood 6’4 SF Guelph Phoenix 2012
Athletic wing player with outstanding leaping ability. Had some ferocious slams and big time blocks. Carried his weaker team throughout the weekend
Aaron Redpath 6’4 SG Burlington Panthers 2011
Solid play on both ends of the floor, can’t expect anything less from this guy night in night out. Could have been more productive from the arc. Probably gets the most 4 pt plays then anyone else out there.
Joe Rocca 6’3 Burlington Panthers 2011
Put up lots of shots this weekend, aggressive on both ends of the floor, ran the floor well and had great positioning for easy hoops.
