End of the line for Knights and Lancers boys basketball
2024-03-17

The high-school boys’ basketball season came to an end earlier this month with a pair of local entries representing NOSSA hopes in Ottawa (AA) and Hamilton (AAA).

With a timely win at NOSSA, the Lo-Ellen Park Knights earned the right to travel to the nation’s capital, opening play with an 84-47 victory over the St Joseph Rams from St Thomas as Adam Scott and Quin Mazzuchin paced the offense with 21 and 19 points respectively.

A 68-44 loss to the eventual gold medal winning St Joseph Jaguars from Barrie would see Mazzuchin bump his two-game point total to 32 as the Knights were sent to the consolation draw. A 20-point performance from Adam Scott was among the several highlights as Lo-Ellen bounced the Westgate Tigers (Thunder Bay) 72-35.

The talented teen was at it again in a game four losing effort, netting 36 points as the Thornlea Thunder (Thornill) stopped the south end crew 95-82.

Over in Hamilton, Sylas Asare-Corbiere would lead the Lasalle Lancers in scoring in each and every game as the New Sudbury lads were defeated by the St Marcellinus Spirit from Mississauga (76-43), outlasted the St Peter Saints from Peterborough (53-48) before being sent packing by the top-seeded and eventual champion Oakwood Barons from Toronto, 71-27.

Asare Corbiere would finish the tournament with 54 points, putting together a run of 18-19-17 over the course of his three games.
