Tourney expected to test Wolverines

Final two games will determine the clubs seeding for the upcoming Island playoffs.

The academic exams are finished for the first semester, but members of the EMCS Wolverines senior boys basketball team face perhaps their biggest test of the season this weekend.

The local Edward Milne Community School squad heads to Victoria Friday to participate in the annual Glenlyon Norfolk Island Showdown.

“This pretty much is the last test to see what we are lacking and what our last week of practice is really going to be focused on before we go into the city [playoffs],” said Wolverines co-coach Alex Wright.

The Wolverines have two regular season games remaining (tonight against Duncan Christian and travel to Pacific Christian School in Saanich on Feb. 11) before the city playoffs followed by the Island playdowns and provincial championships.

Both Pacific Christian and EMCS have the same record heading into last night’s game (6-3).

Those final two games will determine the clubs seeding for the upcoming Island playoffs.

“When we get into games that really matter, we find out more about ourselves and who we are as a group,” said Wright.

“We’re molding ourselves into who we want to be and it will bode well as we head into the playoffs.”
