The W.J. Mouat senior boys basketball team hosts its annual Hawkball Tournament this week.

The tourney tips off Thursday with a trio of games. The AAA No. 10-ranked Enver Creek Cougars of Surrey face the Maple Ridge Ramblers at 3:15 p.m., followed by the MEI Eagles vs. the North Surrey Spartans at 5 p.m. A third Surrey team, the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers, wrap up the opening-day action against the Wellington Wildcats of Nanaimo at 6:45 p.m.

The host Hawks, currently an honourable mention in the AAA rankings and runners-up at the Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament, have a first-round bye. They play the Enver Creek-Maple Ridge winner at 1 p.m. Friday, and the other semifinal goes at 4:30 p.m.

Saturday’s action is highlighted by the bronze (12 p.m.) and gold (1:45 p.m.) medal games.
