St.Michael’s College 51st Annual Tournament: Day Two Recap

Posted on 08. Jan, 2011 by Nolan Shulman in High School

While there weren't a slew of upsets like there were on day one, we did see one of the favorites go down.  HB Beal was able to pull away from Loyola (Oakville) down the stretch and will face off vs. Vaughan (who handled their business) tomorrow in the Quarterfinals.  PIckering and Eastern also advanced as expected on day two.  Here's a look at the results, play of the day, and standout prospects.  



G7: Vaughan 80 (Andrew Wiggins 19) - Jean Vanier (TDCAA) 62 (Shakele Henry-Osborne 19)
G8: H.B. Beal (London) 47 (Malcolm Brown 14) - Loyola (Oakville) 46 (Rohan Boney 16)
G9: Eastern Commerce 73 (Aaron Best 24) - Cathedral (Hamilton) 48 (Keith Brown 16)
G10: Pickering 68 (Asher Tulloch-Lewis 20) - Holy Names (Windsor) 53 (Junior Osuntola 20)


Andrew Wiggins didn't have as many showtime moments as usual, but it was one of his more effective games of the season.  That said, he did manage to drive the lane and create our day two play of the day.  




Andrew Wiggins, Vaughan (6-7, 2014, SF)

Andrew was as efficient yesterday as I've seen him all season.  He had his first 14 points on just 5 shots and certainly came out ready to play for Vaughan's 10am game.  He made 4 three's early, and used his length and outstanding lateral speed to disrupt and make life difficult for Shakele.  With Vaughan up huge in the second half, Andrew and the rest of his teammates had it one cruise control a bit.  Didn't matter.  We saw all we needed to see in the first half.  

Shakele Henry-Osborne, Jean Vanier (6-3, 2011, SF)

Shakele drew a tough assignment both offensively and defensively.  Going up against one of the best players in Toronto, Andrew Wiggins, Shakele made the most of his opportunity.  Shakele is undersized at 6-3, but makes up for it with his terrific wingspan.  He proved he could make shots facing the rim, and create some offense for himself off the dribble.  it was our first look at Shakele and we came away very impressed.  


Rohan Boney, Loyola (Oakville) (6-4, 2012, SF)

Another guy who you can expect to make a leap in our rankings, is 2012 forward Rohan Boney.  He's an exceptional athlete, has a better jump shot than he's given credit for, and seems to play the game with hunger and passion.  While they mostly use Rohan out of the post, he's certainly capable of stepping out onto the wing and demonstrating his perimeter skill set.  I am officially on the bandwagon.  

Chavaun Miller-Bennett, HB Beal (6-0, 2011, PG)

Chavaun is the engine of HB Beal.  He's a tough, shifty, hard nosed point guard who scores and puts pressure on the basketball.  He only had 10 points, but his defense, energy, toughness, and presence were instrumental in Beal upsetting Loyola (Oakville).  He drew a tough matchup in Mike Lafricain, but proved he was more than up to the task.  



Ammanuel Diressa, Eastern Commerce (6-3, 2011, PG)

Manny is a guy we've been sleeping on some.  While I always knew he was terrific, I din't realize how smooth he was.  He's kind of a jack of all trades.  He can shoot it some, can get in the paint some, can run half court sets, transition offense, and can guard in spurts too.  I really think he's the catalyst to Eastern's effectiveness.  When he is running on all cylinders, so is Eastern.
