OTTAWA,ON–The nations capital otherwise known as Ottawa, Ontario is currently the place to be for high school basketball. 18 teams from around the province have collided for one common goal; an OFSAA championship, a symbol of the ultimate success at the high school level.
#3 Holy Trinity Upset
Day one opened with a major upset victory as the #3-ranked Holy Trinity Titans fell to #18 Bill Crothers. Josh Bush dropped a game-high 23 points for Crothers while Holy Trinity’s high point man was Trevon McNeil with 21 points. Although HT is not yet eliminated due to defeating #16 Collingwood in the night game, they will be matched up against the defending OFSAA champion and #1 seed, Vaughan Voyageurs!
In other words, #1 will take on #3 on day two at 1PM…strap for seat belts folks!
#5 St. Mikes Health An Issue?
While #5-seeded St. Mike’s cruised to a comfortable victory over Ursiline 73-35, the storyline behind this game was far beyond the end result. Malcolm Duvivier, one half of what is arguably considered the most potent guard duo in the country has been hit with flu-like symptoms and did not suit up for game one. NPH had the chance to briefly chat with Duvivier, who says he hopes to be ready for day two. Duvivier has built a reputation on being a mentally and physically tough individual, and with this being said, expect him to suit up tomorrow by any means necessary.
Hometown boy, Marial Shayok Drops 35 in Victory
Coming into OFSAA, one of the marquee prospects was 2014 6’5 SG Marial Shayok. The Ottawa product portrayed his offensive prowess by registering a game-high 35 points, which was also good for the most point on day one. In the process, St. Patrick’s rolled over Mississauga’s Father Goetz 80-56. Expect the national cadet team member to be carrying St. Pat’s the rest of the way with big time performances, they will go as far as he takes them.
