Bombers open AA tourney Wednesday against Kelowna Christian
The L.V. Rogers Bombers tangle with Kelowna Christian on opening day of the B.C. High School AA Boy’s Basketball Championships Wednesday in Kamloops.
The Bombers, winners of the Kootenay Zone title, meet the fourth-ranked Kelowna Christian at 1:30 p.m. in the Tournament Centre.
LVR enters the tournament ranked 13th while Kelowna is fourth.
“We were there last year so hopefully that helps us this year with us being nervous,” said Bomber captain Matt Zukowski after LVR knocked off Golden Eagles to capture its second straight zone title.
Zukowski is one of the keys to any LVR success.
Also needing to come up big for the Bombers is point guard Jack Sturrup, Grade 11 forward Isaiah Kingdon and seniors Cail Spencer and Jesse Zak.
The latter Bomber sat out most of the Kootenay Final with a leg injury.
On the girl’s side of the draw Kootenay Champ J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks meet Holy Cross at 10 a.m.
This is the final season both tournaments will be hosted in Kamloops.
The two provincial AA events move to the Langley Events Centre in 2014.
