GW Graham Grizzlies wounded by Whundas in Showcase final

The Grizzlies went 3-1 at their home tourney, beating Sa-hali, St. Thomas Aquinas and Britannia.

The GW Graham Grizzlies advanced to the final of their home tournament last weekend before falling to the Westsyde Whundas.

The Grizzly Showcase featured some of the top high school basketball teams in the province.

GW Graham tipped off last Thursday with a 76-57 win over the Sa-hali Sabres (Kamloops).

Geevon Janday led the way with 19 points, shooting seven of eight from the field and four for four from the free-throw line.

Ty Hall (14 points), Grayson Weston (11) and Jude Hall (10) hit double digits in scoring.

GWG went on to defeat Vancouver’s Britannia Bruins 83-77 and North Vancouver’s St. Thomas Aquinas Fighting Saints 81-70.

In the Saturday night final against the Kamloops-based Whundas, the No. 3 ranked AA team in B.C., Janday was the lone Grizzly to hit double-digits in scoring.

He recorded 12 points in a 65-49 loss.

Janday was a rebounding monster, pulling down 11 boards (10 defensive, one offensive), while Ethan Bartha added six rebounds.

Janday and Weston were named first-team tournament all-stars while Ty Hall got a second-team nod.

The Grizzlies open their regular season schedule Thursday vs the Samuel Robertson Tech Titans.
