Bateman's Nate Friesen goes up for a basket at last year's Timberwolves Classic senior boys tournament.

The seventh annual Timberwolves Classic senior boys basketball tournament is ready to roll at Bateman Secondary starting on Jan. 21.

The three-day event features 16 teams from all across the province. It is a double-elimination tournament, with squads eliminated after losing two games.

Local teams competing at the event are the host Bateman Timberwolves and the Hansen Hurricanes.

Others teams participating include: Surrey’s Sullivan Heights Stars, the Mission Roadrunners, Richmond’s RA McMath Wildcats, Maple Ridge’s Thomas Haney Thunder, the Pitt Meadows Marauders, North Vancouver’s Bodwell Bruins, Nanaimo’s Wellington Wildcats, Vancouver’s Windermere Warriors, Richmond’s Steveston-London Sharks, the Salmon Arm Golds, Burnaby’s Byrne Creek Bulldogs, Langley’s Brookswood Bobcats, Burnaby’s St. Thomas More Saints, and Nelson’s LV Rogers Bombers.

The Hurricanes open against Sullivan Heights, while the Timberwolves play Mission to kick off the tournament. The championship game is set for Jan. 23 at 8:30 p.m.

The senior boys tournament is the fifth of six Timberwolves Classic tournaments in December and January. The junior girls hosted a tournament on Dec. 4 and 5, while the Grade 9 boys hosted on Dec. 18 and 19. The junior boys host on Jan. 8 and 9, with the Grade 8 boys on Jan. 15 and 16. The Grade 9 girls finish off the series of tournaments on Jan. 29 and 30.

All tournament games occur at the Bateman gym.

This year marks a change for the senior boys tournament, as in previous years it had occurred in December. Bateman defeated Highland in the final of the sixth edition of the senior boys event.
