Vancouver Coastal A (green) plays against Vancouver Coast (white) in the gold medal game of 3x3 basketball at Abbotsford Middle School.

Vancouver Coastal teams dominate in boys 3×3 basketball

Two teams from region took top spots, coach played against self.

Basketball coach Sylvester Noel found himself in an “interesting” situation in the gold medal 3×3 game at the BC Summer Games.

The two teams in the final — Vancouver Coastal and Vancouver Coastal A — were both under his coaching direction.

Noel split his time evenly, spending one half on each bench.

Although the “A” team won the gold medal, he said both accomplished all three of their main goals: learning the game, having fun, and winning games.

He said the 3×3 format forces players to work on all aspects of their game, especially defense.

In the bronze medal game, the Vancouver Island Central team beat Vancouver Coastal C.
