Boys' City Basketball Champs Crowned

Weston CI qualifies for OFSAA basketball for first time ever; Oakwood back for another run at gold

The Toronto District Secondary Schools Athletic Association (TDSSAA) crowned its 2017 Senior Boys’ basketball city champs on February 23, and for the first time in the school’s 159 year history, Weston CI will be moving on to represent the TDSB at the provincial Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) basketball championships, taking place in March in Sault Ste. Marie. 

Weston qualified for the Ontario AA tournament by virtue of its convincing win over Jarvis CI by a score of 69-44 at Ryerson University. Perennial powerhouse Oakwood CI Barons took the AAA championship, besting Emery CI 52-48. They will move on to OFSAA provincial games in North Bay.

Weston made an impressive playoff run after a 2-3 regular season record. “We did not expect the team to gel as fast as they did,” said coach Matt Hug, adding that two extra tournaments, coupled with over 90 hours of practice helped solidify the squad. “As coaches we stressed a full denial man defense and ran the team daily to build up their cardio. That with some luck, propelled us to this spot.” 

Despite a back and forth city championship game, Weston's lockdown defence propelled the team to victory over Jarvis and cemented their status as a top tier team in the city.  Shane Jack scored 31 points to lead Weston and Frank Gymfi added 25. Shemar Brown scored 18 points for Jarvis, while Uriah Brown had 14.

For Oakwood, they are in familiar territory. The team has qualified for the provincials eight of the last ten years, winning gold at OFSAA in 2010 and 2014. Last year they took the silver after losing a tight match to the Father Henry Carr Crusaders.“This is really an inexperienced group [this year] that has developed as the season progressed,” said Oakwood coach Anthony Miller. “I really think we can still get better going into OFSAA. After losing in the finals last year, this new group is really seeking some level of redemption.” 

In the city championships, Jacob Masters led the Barons with 14 points while Geogri Nedyalkov netted 12 points. For a very game team from Emery CI, Lucky Osuigwe scored 18 points and Dejon Livingston added 15 more.
