The Burnaby South Rebels lost their No. 1 provincial ranking following a 79-71 loss to host Terry Fox Ravens in the final of the annual Legal Beagle boys' basketball tournament.
The defeat came in what proved to be an unlucky 13th game of the season for now 12-1 South, which led 37-35 at halftime and 55-54 at the third-quarter mark.
But in the final quarter and with the lead in hand, Terry Fox was near-perfect from the charity stripe, making good on 16 free throws to keep the Rebels' attempted comeback at bay.
First team all-star Jermaine Haley scored a game-high 27 points in a losing cause for the Rebels. Tyus Batiste was also named to the all-tournament team.
South defeated Alberta No. 1 Harry Ainlay Titans from Edmonton 92-83 in the semifinals behind Haley's 32 points and nine rebounds.
Earlier in the day, Haley tore it up with 44 points in South's 83-74 victory over Heritage Woods from Port Moody.
