Father Henry Carr has captured the boys’ AAA OFSAA basketball championship.

The Crusaders were the clear favourites entering the tournament as the No. 1 overall seed. Henry Carr did not disappoint as they went a perfect 5-0 upon being crowned champions.

The finals were the toughest challenge for both Henry Carr and their opponents, Oakwood C.I. who cruised to the finals. Trading buckets for the entire first half, Oakwood C.I. took a 26-25 lead going into the break.

After a dog fight of a game, Henry Carr would eventually pull out the 61-53 victory.

Henry Carr capitalized on opponents’ mistakes to clear their way to victory. Ball protection proved to be an important ingredient for Henry Carr’s success as the Crusaders outscored opponents by a combined 88 points throughout the OFSAA tournament.

It is the first boys’ AAA OFSAA basketball championship for Father Henry Carr, a secondary school in Toronto.
