Tsumura Basketball Invitational 2018: Great guards galore and a rugged Raven named Grady ready to grind for gritty Terry Fox

PORT COQUITLAM — Oh how far they have come in just 12 months. A year ago, at this very juncture of December, one week into the 2017-18 season, the Terry Fox Ravens were preparing for the opening round of the Tsumura Basketball Invitational as the only unranked Quad A team in the elite 16-team field.
