Douglas College - On Sunday afternoon the inaugural Underclassmen All-Star games took place hosted by Douglas College. 60 of the top Grade 8, 9, and 10 athletes from around the province gathered for the new addition to All-Star weekend, the day following the Senior Boys All-Star games. All teams were given the chance to practice together on the Douglas College floor the night prior to ensure athletes could adjust to the full size floor and their new teammates.

Grade 10

No different than the first two games, the Grade 10 All-Star game was packed with talent, however the teams had a much different dynamic. For starters, this would be the first time a number of the athletes would compete against other players their age having spent their Junior year playing up with the Senior teams. Additionally, a trio of St. George’s athletes, and a pair from both Holy Cross and Lord Tweedsmuir were split up - going from teammates to foes which brought an intense level of competition to the game. The game was close for three quarters but the Away Team would use a large fourth quarter to defeat their All-Star competitors 81-65.

Leading Scorers:

Away Team:

Hunter Simpson (Kelowna) - 18 Points

Brent Padilla (Holy Cross) - 11 Points

Jaxon Cohee (St. George’s) - 10 Points
