Every year, the Father Henry Carr Early Bird is the tournament that tips off the high school basketball season.
FHC invites some of the top programs in the province to get an early test and inside look at what each team will bring to the table this year. The 2013 Early bird will feature teams from Toronto, Brampton, Hamilton, Ajax, Vaughan and London, Ontario.
Last year, it was the home team Crusaders that won the gold, lead by Tanveer Bhullar (New Mexico State), Josh Bell (Lakehead) and big time 2015 prospect Dillon Brooks, who broke out last season.
Entering this year’s tournament, it won’t be easy to repeat with stiff competition in the draw. As always, you can expect teams and players to step up and break out. You can expect high energy basketball, and you can expect a packed house.
The basketball season is upon us…it’s GAME TIME!
