The Rebels opened the tournament on Thursday with a hard-fought 88-85 overtime victory against Abbotsford’s Mennonite Educational Institute Eagles. But that evening, the Los Angeles-based Fairfax Lions devoured the Rebels 111-43.
South then went on to lose 98-83 to Abbotsford and then 89-75 to the Oak Park Raiders of Winnipeg.
Fairfax defeated Abbotsford’s Yale Lions 91-67 in the tournament final.
