Southridge boys set for provincials

For the fifth year in a row, the Southridge Storm senior boys have punched their ticket to double-A provincial basketball championships. 

The Storm earned their spot in the big dance after an 88-73 win over Pacific Academy Thursday, and then followed that by winning the Fraser Valley third-place game over provincial No. 1 G.W. Graham, 76-62.

The win over the Graham Grizzlies not only gave the Storm a better seed at the provincial tournament – slated for Kamloops later this month – but also avenged two losses to the Grizz earlier this season.

Jacob Andreou had 15 points and 12 rebounds against Graham, and Rider Laskin had 19 points. Other players to finish in double figures were Ben Severide (15 points) and Shahbaj Dhillon (10).
