As the high school season has come to an end, the top basketball programs in the country have established their positions in the “NPH Top 25 National High School Rankings.”
While there were some surprises at provincials across Canada, including British Columbia’s R.C Palmer capturing the first ever championship in school history, there were also powerhouse teams that sustained their dominance.
Nova Scotia’s Auburn High battled with Citadel all season long [and Cole Harbour to some degree] for the top spot in Nova Scotia. Although Citadel cpatured the regional crown, Auburn had the last laugh by defeating Horton at the provincial championships. The squad is led by the triple threat of star point guard A.J Simmonds and complimenting guards Shaquille Smith and Shaquille Johnson.
Largest Plummet: Burnaby South went from being among the top teams in the country to hurting their resume in the provincial championships, placing seventh. Many had the Rebels as favourites entering the tournament
Other Provincial Champions:
-Oak Park: Manitoba
