Card was the Wolverines top point-getter this season, netting 90 points in nine league games.

“Nick’s a good little player,” said EMCS coach Trevor Bligh. “He’s a pleasant kid and gets along with everybody.”

Card is in good company as he competes at the all-star game. The game’s alumni include NBA great Steve Nash.

The Seniors Classic All-Star Games match the top Grade 12 high school boys and girls basketball players from the North Island competing against the South Island with the Malahat acting as the dividing line for the two regions.

Three all-star games are planned at Spectrum with the boys’ B game played at 3:30 p.m., the girls’ game at 5:15 p.m. and the boys’ A game at 7 p.m.

The 32nd annual Vancouver Island Seniors Classic All-Star Games is the longest-running high school sports post-season all-star event in B.C.
