This proved to be the difference, alongside a monster game from Jaden Bediako (27 points, 15 rebounds and 8 blocks). Ryan Brooks' positional defense was also a factor for Ontario, as he drew offensive fouls on a number of Quebec drives to the basket. Quebec's Joshua Mein and Damion Squire combined for 38 points.
