The next big event for the Mouat senior boys team is the Tamanawis tournament in Surrey from Dec. 28 to 30. The Yale senior boys are off until Jan. 5.

Across town it was the 13th annual Roundball Classic at Hansen Secondary.

Eight senior boys and eight senior girls teams hit the floor, with the host Hansen Hurricanes beating the Bateman Timberwolves in the final on Saturday to earn the title in the senior boys division. Langley Christian beat BC Christian Academy in the consolation final to place third.

The Yale Lions senior girls continued a strong December, with a tournament win at the Roundball Classic.
