Canton Tournament Trivia:

Canton was eliminated in the 2015 tournament in a double overtime thriller by Farmington

2014 marked the first time since 1997 that Canton went winless in a tournament.

The 2010 consolation trophy was won by Canton which was made even more remarkable given the fact they entered the tournament with an 0-8 record.

After spending the previous two holiday seasons at the Charleston tournament, Canton returned to the M-WHT in 2009 and won the title.

Canton is 11-9 (.550) since returning to the M-WHT.

Jordan Fouts was named MVP of the 2009 tournament.

Wes Emberton was the 2003 tournament MVP and the only Little Giant to be named to the all-tournament team that year.

Canton has appeared in 132 tournament games. Only Macomb (163) and Pittsfield (146) have played more M-WHT contests all-time.

Shannon Pritchard was the 1986 Tourney MVP.

Hunter Rhodes made 32 free throws during the 2013 tournament to break a 43 year old record. He surpassed the former mark of 30 made by fellow Little Giant Alex Henseler in 1970.

In 1979, Canton set a tournament record when they made 36 free throws in a game.
