Updated: Terry Fox Ravens fly into semis

The Terry Fox Ravens are flying into the semifinals of the BC High School senior boys AAAA basketball championships.

The Ravens scored into the triple digits for the second time in their two games at the provincial finals, as they defeated Oak Bay, 100-66, Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre.

Cameron Slaymaker netted 31 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to lead the third-seeded Ravens. Grady Stanyer also registered a double-double. He scored 22 points and retrieved 21 rebounds.

But more importantly, Terry Fox defenders limited Oak Bay’s scoring sensation, Diego Maffia, to just 23 points. Early this season, Maffia caught the attention of the basketball universe when he netted 96 points in a game against the Ross Sheppard Thunderbirds, from Edmonton, during the 46th annual Western Canada tournament in Kelowna.

Fox never trailed in the quarter-final game. They led 26-19 after the first quarter and 51-33 at halftime.

The Ravens will play the Kelowna Owls in Friday’s late semifinal at 8:45 p.m. at the LEC. 

Kelowna beat the Heritage Woods Kodiaks 84-77 in their quarter-final game on Thursday.

The Centennial Centaurs also lost their quarter-final game, 81-60, to the defending champion Burnaby South Rebels.

Burnaby South will now face Lord Tweedsmuir in Friday's early semifinal, after the Panthers upset top-ranked Holy Cross Crusaders, 79-69.
