The Unity Christian Flames senior boys basketball team went 2-1 at the Bodwell Classic tournament in North Vancouver.
The Flames opened with a thrilling 63-61 win over St. Johns (Vancouver). Down nine points with three minutes to go, UC went on an 11-0 run to erase the deficit and earn the W.
The Flames dumped Carver Christian 68-28 in their second game.
Missing their captain and leading scorer, Nathan Vugteveen, in game three, UC dropped a 65-61 decision to Duncan Christian. Down 43-22 at halftime, the Flames did well to claw back and make it close.
UC’s performance at the tournament should cement their status as the fifth ranked single-A team provincially.
Ryan Billsten, Jason VanWyk, and grade 10 rookie point guard John Vugteveen were all voted tournament all stars.
