High school hoops playoffs begin tonight
At the last second of Saturday night’s hoops contest between Westview and the MRSS Ramblers, a Wildcats shot rimmed the basket and fell out, leaving the Ramblers with a 63-60 win.
The win left MRSS in fourth place at the end of league play in Abbotsford West. The Ramblers will begin league playoffs tonight at Yale Secondary.
The inspirational play of senior Tyler Pipke kept the Ramblers in the game. It was his first game of the year due to injuries, and his 12 points and play in the paint were key in the win. Amit Rakhra’s had 12 points with 11 rebounds
The Pitt Meadows Marauders beat the Terry Fox Ravens 67-58 on Friday night to finish their league with a perfect 10-0 record. Fox finished 8-2 in second place in the Fraser Valley North.
The sixth through 11th teams began play last night, and Pitt hosts a playoff game tonight at 7:45 p.m. against the winner of Charles Best or Centennial.
The tournament will see games played at Pitt at 6 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. on Friday, and Saturday there will be starts at 2:30, 4:15, 6 and 7:45 p.m, the last being the championship game.
