Oakwood CI wins provincial basketball tourney

Oakwood CI wins provincial basketball tourney

The Oakwood CI Barons are the 2014 OFSAA senior boys' AAAA basketball champs. On March 5 at Humber College, the TDSB team prevailed over a tough Father Henry Carr squad, which was ranked number 2 going into the provincial championship tournament.

The game was close throughout with number 5 ranked Oakwood holding a slim 2 point lead going into the fourth quarter. The teams were knotted at 34 with less than 5 minutes to play but Oakwood surged ahead to take a 38-34 lead, and then held on tightly for a 40-38 win in what was a great defensive battle from beginning to end. Guard Jordan Rose led the Barons with 11 points in the gold medal game. Rose and fellow guard Calvin Epistola were named MVPs for the championship game. 

Earlier in the day, Oakwood defeated Notre Dame in the semis with 6' 7" forward Brody Clarke leading the way with 13 points. That followed a big win over TDSB crosstown rival Eastern Commerce the night before.

Oakwood principal Ellen Austrom was at the game and remained throughout, despite admitting to some anxiety as the game ticked down to the final seconds. "I am so proud of the team," she beamed afterward. "Anthony Miller and his coaching staff – Norm Clarke, York Elvie, Dave MacDonald, Branko Samsa, Marie Ramos and Oniel Kamaka – have worked tirelessly with the team to bring them to this point," she said. "The lessons learned in practice and in play are lifelong. Being a part of an OFSAA championship team is now part of their life story." 

The victory capped a dream season for Oakwood. They were 13-2 in league play and an impressive 36-5 overall before entering the provincials. Then they went on a 5-0 run at OFSAA. After the gold medal game, Coach Miller told his players to "take your time, enjoy the moment, get all the photos you want with your team and family. This is for you!"
