Lord Byng dominates at the 2023 Big Ticket as contenders emerge for Senior Girl’s title

The 2023 Big Ticket basketball tournament kicked off with a bang, creating an electrifying atmosphere across eleven gyms in the province. Junior and senior teams put up a great performance on the court to prove their mettle and establish themselves as the best in British Columbia. Throughout the week, we will be keeping you updated with all the storylines and results for the tournament, so stay tuned!

The Lord Byng Grey Ghosts have been creating a lot of buzz this season, and they are the BCSportsHub AAA top-ranked team heading into the regular season. They did not disappoint their home crowd and lived up to the hype by securing an impressive 65-27 victory against David Thompson.

As the tournament progresses, Lord Byng will be hosting Rockridge at 2:15 PM, looking to take another step closer to winning the championship. It will be interesting to see how they fare against their opponents.

Contenders for the Quad A Senior Girl’s title kicked off their campaign in a big way, setting the stage for some exhilarating matchups later in the week.

Starting with the reigning champions, Riverside, the Rapids dominated Crofton House with a massive 95-14 victory. The Rapid’s brilliance from beyond the arch paired with a deep roster of scorers, facilitators, and defenders is a tough group to handle, but for many AAAA programs, a tournament win here can set the tone for the season and provincials.

Argyle also pushed forward to the 2nd leg of the tournament after a tightly contested battle with Brookswood, pulling away with a 56-47 victory. This was destined to be a close game as both Brookswood and Argyle are strong teams in their respective divisions. Argyle’s impressive performance will be something to watch as they hope to progress through this tournament. Despite the defeat, Brookswood will still have the confidence and hunger with a brilliant effort against the 4A side Pipers.

Charles Best and Seaquam girl’s teams also showed out in a big way, scoring 85 and 87 points in dominant wins to open their tournament. The 2024 graduating class is stacked to say the least and with the talent spread out throughout the division, each team has an answer for anything a competitor can throw their way. It will be exciting to see how the rest of the tournament unfolds, with so much talent on display.
