Come out and cheer on the Varsity and Junior Varsity basketball teams as they compete against some of the top teams from around Manitoba over Feb 13-15.   The teams will compete in both the Eddie Cass and the newly opened Richardson Gyms.    The tournament tips off today at 3:30 pm with the JV team facing the Miles Mac Buckeys, while the Varsity team plays Portage Collegiate at 5:15 pm.

The tournament is named in honour of former St. Paul's teacher, basketball coach, and Director of Advancement Nick Laping.   Nick was a teacher and coach at St Paul's in the late 1960's and early 1970's coaching the basketball teams in those years.   He remained a strong supporter of the school and Athletic teams over his entire life, until his death in 2009.
