    strong field indeed

    Father Henry Carr
    George Harvey
    J. Clarke Richardson
    Loyola
    Martingrove
    Mother Teresa
    Pickering
    Richview
    Silverthorn
    St Patricks
    Thornlea
    Vaughan

    Top 4 teams in m eyes are :
    Martingrove
    Henry Carr
    Pickering
    Mother Teresa

    Martingrove last year's Early Bird almost knocked off #1 Mother Teresa
    (Martingrove up 14 in the 2nd Q. Marice Walker took over 2nd half)

    Pickering last year's Early Bird defeated Carr in the finals
    (Rob G.'s dramatic 6 threes)


    Finals should be:
    Henry Carr vs. Martingrove
    -- I see Martingrove winning the Henry Carr Early Bird
    (1st Early Bird win by Toronto West)

    Do not count out Loyola who won the Constalation championship last year, as well as Vaughan who should be strong...any word on St. Patrick's roster?

    I would hesitate to even guess. Its seems the "big" schools have all lost quite a bit. How much has not been fully disclosed. They will always be up there because of the quality of their coaching and the depth of their programs.

    Martingrove appears to return a large part of their lineup so they should be in the mix. Beal is a strong program as is St. Patricks.

    I will not be brave enough to venture a seeding since I would be guessing at the relative strength of these teams. I know one thing it should be a very competitive tournament.

    I agree Coach Clement, that is why I am asking for input. I want to have balanced pools to be fair to everyone.

    We have lost several players, BUT we are still very deep. We will certainly miss the student-athletes that have graduated and moved on to other schools, but I am very pleased with the character, skill level, and work ethic of the current Crusaders.

    Thanks for being honest. It wont be easy to seed the teams. I hope we get it right!

    No, of course not. And neither is anybody else. What kind of question is that?

    Does anybody know if Matthew Wright from Martingrove is returning? please provide this info. This tourney looks like a strong and exciting one to watch this year. I would like to see Carr go all the way back to the finals along side pickering which was a very interesting final to watch last year. But I do got some sleeper teams that have the potential to make noise in this years tourney. For some reason I've always loved the style of play of Silverthorn. They were always a simple, fundamental squad that were down in games and suddenly creeped their way back into games and come out with a win. I dont know if Big John is still coaching over there but I got them to do some damage along side Mother Teresa & Loyola.

    Coach Wheeler Signing Offff!

    Graduated? Did those players graduate from Henry Carr?

    Some seniors graduated and moved on to college, the other underclassmen have moved on to other high schools/prep schools.
