NORTH DELTA — Our learned basketball elders have spoken.
After what were surely furious debates, they have delivered the opening-round results in our BCHSBBA 75th anniversary All-Time B.C. Boys Basketball Tournament Bracket.
As one member of the panel said to me: “If half the people are happy and the other half furious, then I guess we nailed it.”
Really, we expect no less.
A lifetime of pride has been invested in the memory of each and every team selected, and for that matter not selected.
So classy, good-natured discussion is what we hope is the end result, as per this tremendous Twitter posting by Aaron Mitchell, the St. Thomas More senior boys headcoach and former 1994 Terry Fox Raven:
I love my ‘94 Ravens but I hope everyone knows I’m only joking around, people are really getting upset about this 75th annual draw! You, or someone you know won a title just relax people! @htsumura @BCHoopScoop @CoachEbe @bcboysbball 1/2…..— Aaron Mitchell (@AARON_MITCHELL_) January 31, 2020
