LANGLEY — The B.C. boys junior basketball championships are set to tip off Feb. 26 at the LEC, and as we hit the stretch drive there is nothing much to report except the most topsy-turvy stretch of the entire campaign thus far.
Only two of the Top 10 spots remained static, headed by No. 1 Vancouver College.
Meanwhile, former honourable mentions Lord Byng of Vancouver and Spectrum of Victoria moved into the Top 10, and so did Surrey’s Elgin Park Orcas, who were completely unranked in the last poll.
