The Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs senior boys' basketball team finished fourth in their annual home tournament January 10 and 11.
Estevan opened the tournament with an 86-68 loss against the Moose Jaw Vanier Vikings, but recovered to beat the Oxbow Black Knights 87-59. Their 1-1 record left them second in their pool, and they played the bronze medal game against Yorkton Sacred Heart. Estevan lost that game 58-41.
"They are really catching on to a new offence that we've been doing the last couple of weeks," said head coach Shane Ross.
But the club's defensive play was not as strong, and that's something they'll have to work on.
Moose Jaw Vanier defeated Balgonie in the tournament's finale.
The Elecs were competing in their fourth tournament of the year. They finished second in their first tournament in Melville, but since then, the results have been sliding.
They've also been competing without two Filipino players who haven't played or practiced with the team yet this year. They've spent the last month-and-a-half in their native country. Ross hopes that they'll be able to add a lot to the team once they arrive.
Up next for the Elecs is a tournament in Swift Current.
