Jr. boys basketball teams are in Terrace this weekend to battle for provincial berth at the northwest zones.

Teams from Terrace, Smithers and Prince Rupert are competing against each other today and tomorrow in the Skeena Secondary school gym.

Game one tipped off with the Skeena Wildcats taking on the Smithers Gryphons at 2:30 this afternoon.

Smithers will meet up with Prince Rupert’s Charles Hays at 7 p.m. tonight, and Terrace and Prince Rupert will meet up at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

“I would like to see the boys use the skills they’ve acquired over the season and play their hearts out this weekend,” says coach of the Skeena Wildcats, Jag Aujla. “If we can play with the same effort and work ethic we have in practice we are going to do just fine.”
