    CBC STORY: This family is building a basketball dynasty in small town Manitoba


    In the little border town of Sprague, in the southeast corner of Manitoba, basketball is practically a religion. In many small Canadian towns the hockey rink may be the church. But here, the school gym is the cathedral.

    "I think basketball will always be our life here," said Jared Baines, the principal of Ross L. Gray School in Sprague.

    Tianna O'Connor is the school's star player. She's in Grade 12, and is a starter for the Ross L. Gray Lady Raiders. The 17-year-old has been with the team for three seasons — and they've won three straight provincial titles.
