Totems boys basketball teams to square off against Langley’s Brookswood Bobcats

The boys basketball season is set to tip off at Semiahmoo Secondary.

On Tuesday, the Totems will host four straight “home openers” at the school, beginning in mid-afternoon, all against Langley’s Brookswood Bobcats.

Billed by senior boys hoops coach Ed Lefurgy as a “program day” – meaning that multiple teams will be in action – the action begins with the Grade 8 boys hitting the hardcourt at 2 p.m., followed by a Grade 9 game at 3:30 p.m. and a junior game at 5 p.m. Lefurgy’s senior squad will lace up and play at 6:30 p.m.

Last year, Semi’s senior team advanced to B.C. championships for just the second time in the last 40-plus years – they qualified in 2015 to end a four-decade slump – and finished 11th overall. They spent much of the season ranked inside the top-10 among B.C. triple-A teams.
