It may have been the first game of the tournament – the game hit the Langley Events Centre’s arena bowl court bright and early at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday – but the Semiahmoo Totems came ready to play.
The South Surrey squad – one of four Surrey teams in the 4A tournament – won their opening round game of BC High School 4A Senior Boys Basketball Championships 95-74 over Rutland Secondary, who were representing the Okanagan region.
Semiahmoo, the No. 6 seed in the tournament, will play the winner of Handsworth-Holy Cross Thursday in Round 2.
Handsworth and Holy Cross are set to play at 3:30 p.m. today.
Other Surrey teams in action on Day include Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers, who tip off against Burnaby South this evening at 5:15 p.m., and the Tamanawis Wildcats, who will play the North Peace Oscars at 6:45 p.m.
