The Sudbury Selects U14 Bantam Boys lost only one game at the Blessed Sacrament Invitational Tournament two weeks ago in Hamilton, but they learned all that they needed to know in that contest.

The Selects posted a 2-1 record in Pool B play, falling 47-46 at the hands of the Whitby Wildcats. By the time the teams met again in the final on Sunday afternoon, it was a vastly different story as Sudbury bounced Whitby 46-27, walking away with the hardware.

The locals started strong, kicking off the tournament with a 47-30 win over the MYAA (Mississauga) Jaguars, before falling to 1-1 with their loss to the Wildcats.

Undeterred, the northern lads earned a berth in the semifinals, outscoring the Centre Wellington Celtics 50-38. Now on a roll, the Selects maintained their momentum with a 45-32 victory over the London Ramblers, setting the stage for a rematch with Whitby.

The Sudbury crew received solid contribution across the roster, with the scoring parade for the weekend led by the likes of Abraham Soumahoro (55 pts), Brennan LaPierre (46), Liam LaPierre (43), Eric Senechal (27) and Miguel Poulin (14).

The 2013-2014 edition of the Sudbury Selects bantams includes Julien Berthiaume, Miguel Poulin, Anthony Kenny, Brennan LaPierre, Liam LaPierre, Carter Smrke, Cédric Lessard, Jordan Maguire, Abraham Soumahoro, Eric Senechal and Ryan Badger.

The team staff includes coaches Megan Chute, Dwayne Maguire and Alison Bujold. The team now continues their preparation towards the Basketball Ontario championships in the next few weeks.
