    Having seen this team played at the Colt Classic against higher ranked teams and having beaten them and having given Pickering a real run for the championship ... it begs the question!

    Bill Crothers is a sports school for high performance athletes. The Bill Crothers Excellence team is not considered for the Super 16 for this reason and are considered a "prep" team. They do no compete in a regular high school league in Ontario and they will not contend for OFSAA. So they are not included in the Super 16 or the FAB 48.

    There is a 2nd Bill Crothers team that competes in the York league. Only they would be considered for the Super 16.

    Bill Crothers are using the right formula.

    Teams like Campion, St John Paul and Pickering are wasting time playing in their respective leagues. There should be an "elite" league where these teams play each other. 1 or 2 from each region and any player can enroll without transfer penalties.

    It would level the playing field for the elite and the recreational players.

    That would help the growth of the game and development of players.

    People would pay to see that type of top level competition.

    Juel.ca already exists. It's only a matter of time before Bill Crother's is allowed join that league as a team.
    Girl's high school basketball is just a summer league to JUEL.

    Girl's high school basketball needs to step their game up. The current structure is flawed.
