Titans contend for provincials

The SRT Titans split a pair of senior boys’ AA basketball playoff games last week.

The Titans opened the Fraser Valleys in Chilliwack against traditional AA juggernaut Pacific Academy, losing despite a six-point lead at the half.

Titans head coach Scott Tomlin said his team just “ran out of gas” in the second half.

On Feb. 23, the Titans bounced back with a hard fought victory over the Burnsview Wildcats, 60-54.

The Titans were led by shooting guard Kaden Ball, who scored 20 points and had the Wildcats on their heels all night with his deadly outside shooting and slashing to the hoop.

Fellow seniors Dexter Steward, Connor McKellar and Brayden Slaughter also had 12,13, and 8 points, respectively.

The win set the Titans up for a rematch with Delview, Friday. The winner moves on to the  consolation final to play for the last berth to the provincials.
