Grizzlies battle Brentwood College in Showcase finale

The top two teams on each side of the AA Showcase Invitational bracket met in the middle in Saturday night's championship game.

The two best teams on the boys side of the GW Graham AA Showcase Invitational made it to the final, where Brentwood College knocked off the GWG Grizzlies 94-85.

For the second straight year the Grizz made it to the final of their home tourney and came up short.

A 47 point effort from GWG guard Gabe Mannes was topped by the deadly shooting of Brentwood’s Brandon Sullivan, who earned tourney MVP honours.

GWG started last Thursday with an 85-60 win over Langley’s Credo Christian Kodiaks.

They took down the Duchess Park Condors (Prince George) Friday morning, winning 84-62.

A 93-52 win over the Westsyde Whundas (Kamloops) landed GWG in the tournament final.

Brentwood College came through the other side of the bracket with wins over Sa-Hali (Kamloops, 101-42), South Okanagan secondary school (Kelowna, 90-67) and Surrey’s Pacific Academy Breakers (92-69).

GWG’s Mannes and Curtis Kmyta were both named first-team tournament all-stars.
