Dalton Olinoski had a game-high 24 points and was named tournament MVP as his Georgetown senior Rebels captured the championship of their sixth-annual Tip-Off Classic Against Cancer at Georgetown District High School on Saturday, defeating Guelph's J.F. Ross 66-51 in the final. J.F. Ross led 31-29 at halftime before the veteranladen Rebels took over, with Brett Neumann serving as an imposing force on defence while scoring 21 points. Georgetown also thumped Milton District on Monday to improve its record to 4-0 in the Halton North Division and 9-1 overall. In the junior final, Iroquois Ridge beat Etobicoke's Silverthorn Collegiate 37-35, while Christ the King's junior Jags downed Georgetown 37-19 in the consolation matchup. This week, Georgetown coach Steve Pettit's seniors will travel to Edmonton for the 16-team Jasper Place High School REB Invitational International Basketball Tournament, in which they'll face some of the top teams in western Canada. The Rebels will play their first game Thursday against Edmonton's O'Leary. Meanwhile, the Acton Bearcats claimed the consolation title at the E.C. Drury Spartan senior boys' tournament on the weekend, defeating Oakville's T.A. Blakelock 37-23. Corey Tennier scored 11 points and Seb Mena was the game's MVP. In a preliminary round contest, Acton's seniors beat Christ the King 55-40 as T.J. Fry dropped in 18 points. Ryan Sheppard replied with 11 points for the Jaguars. Last week, the senior Bearcats received 18 points from centre Adam Grove in their 53-36 league win over E.C. Drury.

The sixth-annual tournament drew four senior and four junior boys' basketball teams and about $100 was raised for Cancer Assistance Services-Halton Hills. The Rebels got past Iroquois Ridge 53-33 and J.F. Ross of Guelph 66-51 to take the title and the team now heads to Alberta for an elite-level tournament in Edmonton this weekend.
