Father Henry Carr Early Bird Classic won by Orangeville Prep

On Point Basketball was on location at the 2016 Father Henry Carr Early Bird Classic Sr. Boy’s basketball Tournament in Toronto, Canada. The event featured tons of top teams including the hosts, Father Henry Carr Crusaders as well as Orangeville Prep, Thornlea Prep, Vaughan Prep, Athlete Institute, Central Tech, Bill Crothers and other top squads.

Gold medal game highlights featuring Orangeville Prep and Thornlea Prep. Orangeville won the game 84-82 in a double overtime thriller as Jordan Henry couldn’t connect on a layup in traffic which would have sent the game to Triple OT. Fast-rising 2020 prospect Cashius McNeilly of Thornlea continued to build his legend burying a baseline corner three to send the game into the first overtime period. This was one of the best games ever witnessed at the Early Bird!

Tournament MVP Ignas Brazdeikis let O-Prep with 25pts. While stellar point guard Henry paced the Thunder with 24pts of his own. Others who impressed included O=Prep’s Junior Farquha, Keshaun Saunders, Miguel Tonley, James Karnik and Aaryn Rai.
The Thunder had solid performances by McNeilly, Sean Miller-Moore, and Scott Hitchon.
