    I read that Bill Crothers won this tournament and it was called a high school tournament yet there was nothing posted on this form. Was it a Prep school; tourney & does bill Crothers have a high school & a prep school team.

    Thank you, Crabber.

    It is my understanding that it was the Bill Crothers Elite team that played in this tournament (not their high school team). I believe that they will once again have both. Thornlea played in this tournament as did the prep team from the Athletic Institute.

    Interesting article in Sportsnet Magazine entitled "Prep School Confidential" that you might find interesting.

    It is definitely an exciting time for youth basketball in Ontario. I imagine it will take awhile to figure out the roles that high schools, club teams, and prep teams will play in the development of these extremely talented student-athletes.
