Ennis and Findlay Lead Henry Carr Juniors to TDCAA Championship

Posted on 26. Feb, 2010 by Nolan Shulman in High School, Tournaments

 

Going undefeated is an unbelievable accomplishment.  Pefection can only be accomplished by bringing your hard hat and lunch pale to work every day and taking each challenge head on.  Yesterday, Tyler Ennis and Tevin Findlay led their Henry Carr Junior team to the TDCAA Championship, completing a 40-0 season and doing so in dominating fashion. 

Led by the #3 point guard in the class of 2013, Tyler Ennis, Henry Carr walked all over McGuigan right from the opening tip.  Tyler put his passing on display, recording a game high 13 assists and initiating the Carr transition game.  He made no look drop offs, on the money lead passes, and found his teammates open for three when pentrating the lane.  He showed his versatility as a point guard by also scoring 22 points and demonstrating an ability to finish at the rim and an improved deep ball.  His three point shot is still a work in progress, but he did connect on some deep triples both with his feet set and pulling up.   Simply put, he was the engine of the Carr juniors all season long and he didn't dissapoint when the lights shinned brightest. 

 

Tyler's playoff numbers were rock solid every step of the way.  He scored 31 points and added 10 assists vs. Dante, recorded a near triple double vs. Carr B (19, 8, 13), went off for 27 and 10 vs. Bosco, and lit up Neil McNeil for 33 and 11.  An outstanding playoff run for the best point guard in Canada's class of 2013. 

Tyler wasn't the only one who stood out for Henry Carr.  Tevin Findlay was also outstanding the entire tournament.  He also scored 22 points in the championship finals, but his game of the tournament came vs. Neil McNeil when the guard-forward went for 41 points and 7 rebounds.  Tevin is a very aggresive and confident player who's dynamic off the bounce.  He's one of those guys who's almost impossible to stop if he has his mind set on getting to the rim.  That's not the only thing that sets him apart.  His length and relentless effort also make him a very intriguing prospect. As his body continues to fill out and his ball handling improves, we could be looking at a tremendous shooting guard prospect down the line.   His shot is further along the curve than his handling, but he'll need to continue putting up shots in the gym to gain the type of consistancy he wants to achieve.

Both of these young men have difficult decisions ahead regarding whether to go to prep school or stay in Toronto another year.  For now they will enjoy their perfect season and TDCAA Championship and continue to grind it out working on their game. 

On the heels of the Carr senior team missing out on OFSAA despite high expectations, coach Paul Melnick can sleep easy knowing the future looks bright with these two likely being called up next year.

    Carr A went 40-0 last year.They defeated the top 5 teams and others twice,ie pickering,vaughan,mt,pope & eastern.How comes no one gave those guys the praises that they truly deserved.Those players were as talented as these guys and they did it fairly.
