This group of tenth graders played a year up, and were still able to get it done at the OBA U17 Ontario Cup, as the Ottawa Guardsmen defeated Motion in the championship final. Four players on this team were invited to Cadet National Team try outs; Eddie Ekiyor, Malik Turenne, Jacques Lukusa, Maxime Boursiquot, with two that made the team in Ekiyor and Turenne.

Yesterday, Turenne was integral in Team Canada’s victory over Puerto Rico, registering 14 points, six assists and five rebounds off the bench, while Ekiyor pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds and three blocks.

In this championship game however, Viktor Lorenzen was an x-factor, hitting five critical three-pointers to help carry the Guardsmen to the championship.
