March Madness in Alberta

As March Madness takes over North America, Alberta has it's own version come mid March, the Provincial 4A boys high school basketball championships. This year 16 teams traveled to Lethbridge, Alberta, in hopes of winning the top 4A title in the province.

This year's final game saw Calgary's Bishop McNally Timberwolves play the Cardston Cougars in the sold out gym at the University of Lethbridge campus.

The Timberwolves wasted no time getting a lead of 23-14 after the first quarter coached by Tyler Korol. As head coach Korol has won 3 Calgary city championships and has been to the provincials 4 times but has never won.

The Timberwolves did not let up in the second quarter and went into the locker room with a 48-31 lead.

The Cougars exchanged baskets with the Wolves in the third quarter to keep the dominate Calgary team from running away with the game, but the Timberwolves would not back down in the fourth, outscoring the Cougars 24-17.

McNally would not be denied this year and defeated the Cougars 95-70 to win the Provincial Championship crown.
