Can You Lend Us An Assist?

It's been about 6 years of running CWOSSABasketball.com, and it's time for some changes -- in a positive way. With some additional time to dedicate to the site this year, there's a few things I'm looking at accomplishing and improving during the 2015-16 season. Of course, considering the expenses associated with the following, I'll need your help along the way:

#CWOSSARoadTrip: Stretching from Delhi through to Wiarton, my goal for this season is to visit EVERY CWOSSA school that fields a basketball team (keeping in mind there's 60 or so!) for at least one game during the 2015-16 (girls or boys) season. Along with reporting on the game that I see that day, I also hope to include additional features or information about a student, the school itself, or the surrounding area (not necessarily basketball related). Some of the funds raised will be used to offset the expenses associated with this massive project.

OFSAA Coverage: Helping to defray the cost of attending the OFSAA championships (boys and girls) in Windsor this coming year, and reporting on things from a CWOSSA-specific perspective.

Photos/Videos/Highlights: Hiring an individual (and/or company) to provide game highlight videos that will be posted on the website. My goal is to start with major games (championships, etc.) and have highlights of other games if funding allows.

Website Improvements: Although the blogger platform is functional, I would like to switch to a more professional look. Any funds left over after the first several items will be put towards this purpose.

Whether you can spare $2, $5, or $25, any donation is appreciated to help continue the promotion of CWOSSA Student Athletes. Please take a look at the Indiegogo Crowdfunding link for CWOSSABasketball.com here, and thanks in advance for your support!

D10 Senior: Unbeaten Centennial Survives Another One

The undefeated Centennial Spartans survived yet another close one in D10 league play on a rare Wednesday night game yesterday.

The Spartans travelled down the Hanlon Parkway to battle the Lourdes Crusaders and came away with a narrow 63-62 win. This marks the fifth time this year that Centennial has won a game by 4 points or less.

For the Spartans, Adrian Varilla (18) and Jay Francis (17) led the way while the usual suspects were at it again for Lourdes ---- Mike Finoro had 27 while Sharieff Peru connected for 19 points.

The moves the Spartans to 12-0 on the year, while Lourdes falls to 5-7 in a very balanced D10 league. Centennial's average margin of victory in their 12 wins has been only 11.8 PPG. If you exclude their first two games against Bishop Mac and CW, it's 7.5 PPG.

Still, the fact of the matter remains that the veteran Spartans are undefeated and perhaps these close games will help them down the stretch in the D10 playoffs and (should they advance) into CWOSSA.
In the junior portion of the doubleheader, the CWOSSA #3 Lourdes Crusaders held off Centennial by a 58-54 score. Chris Watson had 24 points for Lourdes, while Aleks Kaludjerovic led the Spartans with 18.
