The Crusaders will play the four-seed Vancouver College Fighting Irish at 5:15 this evening (Thursday).

The nine-seed Semiahmoo Totems fell 79-69 to the eight-seed Kitsilano Blue Demons. Brian Wallack with 22 points and Vlad Mihaila with 21 led the Totems offense.

The Totems will start consolation play today at 10:15 a.m. against the Mt. Baker Wild of Cranbrook.

The Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers are also on the consolation side of the draw, as the tournament’s 10-seed fell 89-56 to the seven-seed St. George’s Saints.

Dylan Kinley with 22 points was the top scorer for Lord Tweedsmuir, which will play the 15-seed North Peace Oscars of Fort St. John at noon today.
