The Corner Brook High Titans finished out of medal contention at the provincial 4A boys basketball tournament in St. John’s over the weekend.

The defending champions had a 1-2 record in round-robin play after the team’s fourth game was cancelled because of inclement weather and power outages in as a winter storm pounded the capital city over the weekend.

Alan Hoven collected 24 points to lead the Titans to a 96-22 win over Exploits Valley High of Grand Falls-Windsor for its only win of the tournament.

Thomas Stewart had a 15-point performance for the Titans, while Cody Power and Jordan Ryan had 10 points apiece.

The Titans opened the tournament with a 101-96 loss to Mobile High as Power paved the way with 24 points in a losing cause and Ryan finished with 23 points.

Ryan had 28 points and seven rebounds as the Titans lost 75-73 to Gonzaga High of St. John’s in a game that pushed the Titans out of playoff contention.

The Prince of Wales Collegiate Cavaliers eventually won the tournament with a 67-62 championship victory over Holy Heart of Mary.
