LANGLEY — If you go by the pollsters provincial point tallies, we’ve got one heck of a Final Four brewing on the road to the B.C. senior girls basketball championships tipping off March 1 at the Langley Events Centre.
PoCo’s Riverside Rapids, continue to hold down top spot, yet by only four poll points (71-to-67) over Langley’s Walnut Grove Gators.
No. 3 Burnaby Central sits with 60 points, while Abbotsford’s No. 4 Yale Lions continue to climb, moving into the top four with 55 points.
