Rebels cruise into Crehan Cup

The Burnaby South Rebels will head into the Lower Mainland senior girls basketball championship as the top representative from the Burnaby/New Westminster high school league.

The Rebels downed the Burnaby Mountain Lions 72-36 Wednesday to take the BNW banner. In the Lower Mainland tourney known as the Crehan Cup, Burnaby South will face the winner of a game in Richmond on Saturday morning between Burnaby Mountain and the Killarney Cougars, the fourth seed from the Vancouver league.

While South, ranked 10th in the province, defeated the Byrne Creek Bulldogs 72-36 in the semifinals, the Lions pulled off an upset by downing the New Westminster Hyacks 70-50 Tuesday. New West finished second in regular season play with a 5-1 record while Mountain was 4-2. Both the Bulldogs and Hyacks play wild card games at Byrne Creek on Friday with the winners advancing to the Crehan Cup.

Three teams will advance to the provincial championship in Langley March 6-9.
