Thanks for posting the draw Heritage Hoops. Would be great if other tournaments would do the same.

Some thoughts on a few of the match-ups

Top of Draw:
1. Kits over St George's in the quarters (Panorama Ridge could beat St George's as well)
2. KSS vs Terry Fox in other quarters (Fox will always battle)
3. Kits vs KSS in semi's - Is Simson still playing football...? KSS by 20+

Bottom of Draw
1. VC over Yale (with Braich getting 45) - VC has too much size
2. Oak Bay over Holy Cross (might be a record number of 3's attempted) - HC is still a year away
3. West Van over Mouat
4. Churchill over Port Moody - might get ugly
5. Quarters: VC over Oak Bay - too much size
6. Quarters: SWC over West Van - quite the starting 5 for SWC
7. Semi: SWC over VC. VC has a size advantage, but skill-wise, SWC wins by 20+

Final: SWC over KSS - might be the 1st close game either team has. KSS wins IF Shepard goes for 30 (& Simson plays)
MVP: Pajayon - SWC

As mentioned previously, this was an outstanding tournament last year (just looked at some of the comments/game reports from last year). Coach Yash mentioned a few "underclassman" names that stood out - Riley Braich (Yale), Rysen John (VC), Pajayon, Virk, Lui (SWC), Madhu McConnell (Oak Bay), Keegan Konn (Holy Cross). Add to that all the KSS, Kits talent.

Too bad that Walnut Grove isn't in it with all their exceptional Gr 11's.

Anyone else with some early picks or players to watch...?

I heard that Gabe Laza tore his ACL, if that's the case I'm afraid  that Fox won't be heading to LEC this year. I watched him last year at the Kodiak tourney and Legal Beagle, he put on quite a show. Unfortunately injuries and sports go hand in hand, sometimes we see our favorite heroes fall from grace, not by their own doing , but by unfortunate circumstances. Does anyone know his situation? Wish him all the best.

Some thoughts on Day 1 - lots of lopsided scores, more than I thought. A few headlines for me:

1. No, Riley Braich does not need JBB to score. The kid can shoot. He can score. He can dish (as a last resort).
2. Best game of Day 1: Yale vs Oak Bay. Yale dominated the paint and boards, & Braich scored at will, but a late barrage of 3's & a good 2nd half from Myka Tang Blumenshein kept Oak Bay in game. Blumenshein had a chance to win it with 2 seconds left. Solid game by both teams.
3. My heart hurt as Fox got lit up by KSS.
4. Mouat is my surprise team - played well against West Van, & better than score indicated vs SWC.
5. Early season blues - VC & West Van
6. Football & volleyball powers might need a little more time to get up to speed. Overheard someone mentioning Oak Bay was missing 2 SR starters. Likely other teams are experiencing similar issues.
7. Overemphasis on the 3. Is it just me or do teams rely too much on the 3. Their %'s are low, they don't get as many offensive rebounds, & they don't get to the free throw line as much. Maybe I'm old school, but scoring from the paint isn't a bad thing. I watch the provincials most years & the teams that rely on the 3 rarely win. It works in the NBA, but high school...?
8. Interested to see Yale play Churchill. Everyone underestimates Yale, this year AND last year. They protect the ball, they play tough defense, they aren't tall - but their bigs are aggressive, & most importantly they keep the ball in their best players hands (alot). That's not a bad thing. I don't think their coach gets enough credit. Churchill relies on skill & they have an abundance of it with their 4 "Drive/BC Team" key players, all who have won a provincial championship. Yale could surprise.
8.My pick is KSS. While SWC matches up with KSS skill, they have no answer for Grant Sheppard. Who does? Maybe Walnut Grove - but that's for another time & place.

Special thanks to Heritage Woods & Port Moody - great tournament.
Anyone else like to share...?
