2015-2016 Juvenile Boys

SUMMARY


The juvenile boys basketball team experienced a growing season. Challenged to do without the commanding post presence of last year’s team leader Ethan Fung, who played up with the juniors this season, the boys adopted a run-and-gun style of play, founded on stifling defence and quick passing. Bringing new life to the group were the determined Quinn Johnston, talented grade 8 Tony Yue, along with the rebounding spark of Ngozi Asiegbu.

The team competed in three tournaments, going undefeated at Eric Hamber and finishing 2ndat New Westminster. After struggling at Sutherland’s tournament in North Vancouver, the team came together to close out the regular season with a four-game winning streak, including a rematch victory against rivals Kitsilano Blue Demons. Every player contributed to this run, as the team earned a 7-3 record in the regular season, good for 3rd in Vancouver’s west division.

In the first round of the playoffs, the boys worked hard against a quick Windermere team, the 2nd ranked team from Vancouver’s eastside, holding a lead against a barrage of 3-pointers by the Warriors, but fell short in the dying minutes in their bid to make the city championships. Their season came to an end with an overall record of 14 wins and 11 losses, finishing 6th in the city playoffs. Regardless of the outcome of each game, the boys demonstrated fair play and learned the value of teamwork.

Crucial to the team’s success were the contributions of managers Lulu Wang, Mia Hua, Cinya Li, Margaux Arboleda, Kimberly Payba, Alvina Leung and manager/practice-player Cameron Hong-Tai. Thank you to everyone who supported the team this year.
