Surrey’s Tamanawis Wildcats hold No. 1 seed heading into 32-team B.C. junior boys tournament! No. 2 Van College, No. 3 Bby South and No. 4 Sullivan Heights provide the push heading into Saturday’s opening tip-off at LEC!

No public high school from Surrey has managed to win the B.C. junior boys basketball championships.

The Tamanawis Wildcats, installed as the No. 1 seed in the 32-team event set to tip off Saturday at the Langley Events Centre, have a chance to change all of that if they live up to their top billing within a projected Final Four which also includes the No. 2 Vancouver College Fighting Irish, the No. 3 Burnaby South Rebels and the No. 4 Sullivan Heights Stars of Surrey.

Vancouver College defeated Burnaby South 51-45 in last season’s title game. Earlier in the 2022 tournament, Burnaby South eliminated Tamanawis in the Sweet 16 round 56-44 behind a 26-5 game-closing run.

Quarterfinals will be contested Sunday afternoon and semifinals on Monday night ahead of Tuesday’s 7 p.m. title tilt on South Court. 

Here’s the full draw. We’ve also included host Ten Feet Sports and Entertainment’s tweet as well, just in case the viewing there is better. Older readers like myself have been challenged by the small type. Apologies.
