It's do or die for the Sardis secondary senior boys basketball team in a Fraser Valley Championship game against Lord Tweedsmuir today (Thursday).
The winner goes to provincials; the loser goes home.
"We match up well with Tweedsmuir, and it should be a good game but a tough one," said coach Kyle Graves.
With a win, Graves (a Sardis basketball alumni) would lead his team to its first provincial trip in the school's history.
After beating Robert Bate-man 78-30 in the first round of the Fraser Valleys last Wednesday, the Falcons went down 75-64 to Enver Creek Friday before staving off elimination against North Delta 82-61 Monday.
That game was a "complete team effort," according to Graves, with five players put-ting up double-digit points led by Grade 12s Ryan Mcknight and Mike Gregory.
Mcknight came off the bench to hit four three-pointers. Grade 11s Hayden Lejeune, Eric Rogers and Cam Servatius also chipped in more than 10 points each. Grade 12 Falcons captain Jason Kroeker also put in a great defensive effort to shut down North Delta's star player.
Sardis's game against Lord Tweedsmuir tips off at 2: 30 p.m. in Surrey. Visit www. bcboysbasketball.com.
