The Gleneagle Talons have already locked up a berth in the AAAA basketball B.C. Provincial Championship next month but there are still a couple games left in the Fraser Valley playoffs.
And according to Talons head coach Tony Scott, they are far from easy victories for his young squad.
First up is Walnut Grove, a team that has defeated Gleneagle twice during the regular season, in large part thanks to the play of the Langley team's point guard Jaden Cohee.
"They have one of the best point guards in the province," Scott said. "The last time we played them he scored 40 on us. The time before that it was 30."
Needless to say, Gleneagle will have to minimize Cohee's point output during tonight's game if they hope to come away with the victory.
Scott said his team will be focusing on Cohee, with the hopes of keeping him to the outside for most of the match.
There is some good news, however. Gleneagle dealt Walnut Grove its only loss of the regular season, a performance the Talons hope to repeat tonight.
A victory Friday would set the stage for a championship game between either Holy Cross or Tamanawis secondary, depending on the results of that semifinal match.
Meanwhile, the Terry Fox Ravens and the Heritage Woods Kodiaks are playing for their playoff lives. The two teams were expected to play each other Thursday night, The Tri-City News' deadline.
The winner of Thursday's match would have to win one more game on Friday night in order to secure the wildcard spot in the provincial championships.
