Several local basketball players ended their high school careers in style in Langley on Saturday at the BC boys high school basketball all-star game.

The game featured the top talent from all tiers, with 20 players split into squads. Teams were coached by Kelowna’s Harry Parmar and Southridge’s Steve Anderson.

Abbotsford talent suiting up for the game included Abbotsford Senior‘s Chase Claypool, Yale‘s Riley Braich, Hansen‘s Jobhan Pander and Mouat‘s Jordyn Sekhon on Team Parmar, and Mouat’s Jass Singh on Team Anderson.

Team Parmar trailed 111-82 with seven minutes left, but made a late surge to narrowly win 121-120. The team scored 44 points in the game’s final quarter to secure the win.

Claypool scored a team-high 25 points, with Braich adding 18. Sekhon scored 10, Pandher added three, and Singh scored 10 for Team Anderson.

UFV recruit Daniel Adediran from Surrey’s Pacific Academy scored 15 points for Team Parmar and got to share the floor for the first time with fellow Cascades recruits Braich and Sekhon.

The trio are set to suit up for the Cascades this fall.
