It’s busy playoff season in B.C. high school basketball, with championships happening for every gender, age and school size.
Several South Fraser-area teams, including those in Surrey and Delta, are in action.
The many provincial championship tournaments will again take place at Langley Events Centre, starting with junior boys on Saturday (Feb. 25), followed by junior and senior girls (March 1-4) and senior boys (March 8-11).
Starting today (Friday) in South Surrey, Semiahmoo Secondary will host the South Fraser regionals for 4A senior boys teams (largest school enrolment) over the coming week. South Fraser receives four berths to the 4A provincial championships in Langley.
Four opening-day games Feb. 24 include Elgin Park vs. North Surrey at 3 p.m., followed by Holy Cross/Panorama Ridge, Queen Elizabeth/McMath and Frank Hurt/Lord Tweedsmuir.
The game winners will face either Tamanawis, Enver Creek, Fleetwood Park or Semiahmoo, depending on seed. The South Fraser “final four” placings will be determined Friday, March 3 at Semiahmoo’s gym.
