Hansen wins Timberwolves Classic tournament

Robert Bateman Secondary hosted the 6th annual Timberwolves Classic over the weekend.

The 6th annual Timberwolves Classic basketball tournament wrapped up on Saturday with a final game between the Robert Bateman Timberwolves and the Rick Hansen Hurricanes. The tournament featured 16 teams.

Hansen took the final 84-74 in front of a boisterous crowd. Bateman established a modest lead early in the game due to their high-tempo play, but Hansen surged in the third quarter.

Joban Pandher led the Hurricanes in scoring with 12 points (five Hansen players finished in double-digits). Iqbal Grewal scored 26 points for the Timberwolves, while Nate Friesen chipped in with 12.

Bateman athletic director Virinder Braich has organized the tournament since it began six years ago, and said that this year’s event was the biggest yet.

“The first year we actually started with six teams, and went to eight, and stayed at eight until this year,” said Braich.

The Timberwolves are currently an honourable mention in the B.C. Triple-A rankings.
