  Over the course of ten years, there have been three teams to lay claim to the Hoopfest BC Men’s championship (The School 6, Runnin’ Rebels 2) and as of August 17, 2014, Athelite can proudly join the list as repeat champions.  Not to be outdone, the UFV Cascades matched Athelite’s accomplishments by becoming back to back champions in the Women’s Division, setting a precedence for any challengers in the second decade of the Hoopfest BC Tournament. With a batch of new faces and new teams, along with the ongoing contribution of the GET BUCKETS program,  the future of the Hoopfest BC Tournament looks promising. MEN’S DIVISION: Following an undefeated round robin schedule on Saturday, Athelite received the top seed in the Hoops Nation bracket, leading to a first round playoff victory over the NEC Nighthawks and a repeat semi final defeat over their...

The 9th Annual Hoopfest BC Tournament presented a changing of the guard (pun slightly intended) as for the first time in tournament history a team other than The School or Runnin’ Rebels was crowned Men’s Division Champion, while on the Women’s side the continued growth leads to promise for local female ballers down the road.  Over the course of August 17/18th, 8 men’s and 5 women’s teams from throughout the Lower Mainland filled the Langley Events Centre Field House for the largest Hoopfest BC field  in  tournament history.  While the on court action was not only a resounding success, this talented collection of players came together to raise $710 for Kidsport Langley through the GET BUCKETS program. MEN’S DIVISION Last year, Athelite suffered a two point loss to the Runnin’ Rebels in the tournament championship game.  This year they extracted...

In order to win, teams have to have a certain balance of talent, chemistry and luck.  Occasionally you may see a team get by without one of the three to claim a championship and people will tab them with an asterisk or a fluke.  For teams to win multiple championships, the word dynasty starts to get thrown around in conversation.  Add in a win loss record of 31-1 and six championships over the course of their seven appearances in the HOOPFEST Tournament and the respect has without doubt been granted and earned by the basketball community.  Returning to the Langley Events Centre for the 7th Annual HOOPFEST Tournament on the weekend of August 20-21st, The School walked away with their hands and stomachs full of accolades.   Since the inaugural tournament tip off in 2004, while there have been a few tinkerings to enhance the event, the one constant has been that either or both of The...
