TOWERING forward Kyler Filewich, 16, had impressive numbers for Manitoba in three contests at the Games, including 10 points and eight rebounds against Alberta Tuesday. None of that matters with his club on the outside of the final four, he said.

“It’s very tough being done already. Going to practice for months and then just going out like this, it’s not fun,” said 6-8 Filewich, after an 87-66 loss to Alberta eliminated Manitoba. “This is very tough. We came out strong but we just couldn’t keep it going. They played really well and it seemed like we just kind of gave up.”

Manitoba led 22-17 after the opening quarter but was doubled up 24-12 in the next 10-minute period and simply couldn’t recover.

"That’s the way it goes in sport. You have two forces going against each other and sometimes one overwhelms you."

Shawn Maranan led Manitoba with 18 points, while Mark Tachie added 14.
