St. Thomas More Knights may have lost a battle, but not the war.
The King George Dragons were sobered last week when their 27-1 record was sullied not just by a loss but by a blow-out of a defeat. On Friday night at Kitsilano, the No. 5 AA Dragons dropped a stunning 85-49 game to the No. 8 AAA Demons.
If there's one attribute everyone repeats about the King George Dragons, it's that the senior boys basketball team is well coached. It's becoming a tradition.
A brief but competitive and dynamic season of city hoops awaits this winter.
Last season, the B.C. High School Boys AAA Basketball Championships moved from its storied decades-long home at the PNE Agrodome in Vancouver to a more modern facility in Langley. At the time, many local high school basketball aficionados had many reservations about the loss of tradition, the dreaded commute to the suburbs, and, most importantly, what impact this might have on the local high school basketball scene. Couple this loss with paranoia that teacher job action might cut our basketball season short and city hoops fans have cause for concern. Given the numerous tournaments and high-profile exhibitions games being played in a jam-packed high school basketball season, high school hoops nuts will be well-fed. Not a week goes by without several great games and tournaments being offered up for Vancouver high school hoops consumption. City hoops is alive and well.
