It was a tournament which truly lived up to its billing.

Nine of the province’s top 10 AAA senior girls basketball teams, as well as three others listed as honourable mentions, hit the court over the weekend at the Centennial Secondary Top 10 shootout in Coquitlam.

And when it all said and done, the fourth-ranked South Kamloops Titans held the second-ranked Brookswood Bobcats offence in check, taking the tournament title 59-56.

Prior to that game, Brookswood had averaged nearly 86 points per game in their run to the finals.

The ’Cats beat Kitsilano 94-56 in the opener, beat the fifth-ranked Argyle Pipers 84-66 in the quarter-finals and then edged the third-ranked Handsworth Royals 79-76 in the semifinals.

Jessie Brown was named a first team tournament all-star, while Tayla Jackson was a second-team selection and Syd Williams was an honourable mention.

Brookswood hosts the W.J. Mouat Hawks in league play tonight (Tuesday).
