Elsewhere in Surrey this week, Semiahmoo Totems will look for a fourth straight tournament title during the 29th edition of the Surrey RCMP Classic, which started Sunday (Jan. 12) and runs until Saturday (Jan. 18). The boys of Holy Cross play in the BC Catholics tourney instead, due to scheduling conflict.

For 2020, 48 senior and junior teams will shoot for glory in the all-Surrey high school boys Classic, with a championship final played at Enver Creek Secondary’s gym (14505 84th Ave.) on Saturday starting at 7:45 p.m.

Among Canada’s largest high school basketball tournaments, the Surrey RCMP Classic involves close to 700 teen athletes playing a total of 87 games during a busy week of action. Schedules and scores are posted to surreybasketballclassic.info.
