Lions of L.A. devour Burnaby South Rebels

The Burnaby South Rebels senior boys high school basketball team got schooled by one of the best in North America at Abbotsford Collegiate’s Snowball Tournament last week.

The Rebels opened the tournament on Thursday with a hard-fought 88-85 overtime victory against Abbotsford’s Mennonite Educational Institute Eagles. But that evening, the Los Angeles-based Fairfax Lions devoured the Rebels 111-43.

South then went on to lose 98-83 to Abbotsford and then 89-75 to the Oak Park Raiders of Winnipeg.

Fairfax defeated Abbotsford’s Yale Lions 91-67 in the tournament final.
