It was never in doubt. The Edmonton Stingers became the first repeat champions of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) with a convincing 101-65 win over the Niagara River Lions in front of 2,710 ecstatic fans at the Expo Centre in Edmonton.
The game was the culmination of an incredible week celebrating the game and culture of Canadian basketball. In addition to a series of community basketball events, 2021 CEBL Championship Weekend showcased the CEBL Awards on Wednesday and a series of top musical acts including Roy Wood$, and an incredible halftime spectacle from Kardinal Offishall and 4Korners.
