The tournament came to an end today, with the Quebec Bulldogs going home with shiny new gold medals. Though Toronto (Scarbarian Tigers) kept it close in a low scoring first half, Quebec started to take over the pace of the game in the 3rd. This was the lowest scoring game for Quebec, who averaged 71 points per game. The Quebec club went undefeated for the entire tournament. It’s been a great weekend for Maxime Poulin, of Quebec, who was named Male Athlete of the Year by Wheelchair Basketball Canada last night.
Congratulations to the Toronto Academy, who defeated the Twin City Spinners this morning to earn their seeding into the Gold medal game. They went 4-2 in the tournament and closed out with silver medals. Mike Frogley and the National Academy should be proud.
The Twin City Spinners worked their tails off to get their bronze medal. After being defeated in a long game against Toronto at 8:00 this morning, they quickly prepared themselves for a 10:00 AM game against Team BC. They edged out BC 56-54 in a tightly contested match that came down to a missed shot by Team BC with one second left on the game clock.
Congratulations to all the clubs and staff, it’s been a great tournament and we look forward to hosting more events in the gorgeous TCC. We’d also like to thank our sponsors and partners. Their donations and support have been paramount to the success of the event, and we couldn’t have done it without them.
Thank you, and we’ll see you all again soon!
