Car­bon­ear played its first game on March 11 against Bre­ton So­lu­tions, keep­ing the game close, only to lose 76-73. The team re­bounded the next morn­ing to earn its lone vic­tory of the tour­na­ment, an 85-51 blowout win over Lewis­porte.

That af­ter­noon, Car­bon­ear faced the Goulds Bombers. The game was an­other close one, with the Goulds team prov­ing tri­umphant in an 83-77 vic­tory. Car­bon­ear fin­ished play that evening with a tough 7146 loss to M-5.
