The Semiahmoo Totems are one of only four teams left standing at BC High School Triple-A Senior Girls Basketball Championships, after a convincing win over Langley’s Brookswood Bobcats Thursday at the Langley Events Centre.
In the quarter-final matchup, Semiahmoo – one of the youngest teams in the tournament – beat the Bobcats 87-56, led by Grade 9 guard Deja Lee, who had 25 points and seven assists, and Grade 11 Faith Dut, who had 18 points and 16 rebounds.
Now, the Totems prepared for a semifinal matchup against the No. 1-seeded Kelowna Owls, led by NCAA-bound Taya Hanson. The two teams are scheduled to hit the LEC’s centre court at 5:15 p.m. tonight.
In the other semifinal – scheduled for 3:30 p.m. today – Abbotsford Senior will play Walnut Grove.
Semiahmoo won its opening-round game Wednesday afternoon against New West.
Surrey’s other entry into triple-A provincials, Sullivan Heights, also won it’s opener Wednesday – 69-64 against Carson Graham Secondary – but couldn’t make it two in a row, losing in quarter-finals 63-55 to Abby Senior on Thursday.
Sullivan Heights was competing at provincials for the first time in school history. They’ll play Riverside Secondary today at 1:45 p.m., and can finish the tournament as high as fifth overall.
