This past weekend Barriere senior boys basketball competed in the St. John’s Basketball Jam in Vancouver which features some of the best single “A” teams in the province.

Barriere’s first round match up was against provincially ranked 10th place team Unity Christian from Chilliwack.

Tyler Schilling led the way for Barriere with 24 points, Tristan Brackman adding 18 points and Dustin Pawloff chipped in with another 15 points for the cougars. Barriere came up a little short in this contest losing by a single point, 85-84.

With the loss Barriere’s next game saw them match up with Glenlyon Norfolk from Victoria where Barriere dominated from start to finish with strong defensive and excellent outside shooting winning 83-48.  Tyler Schilling again lead the way for Barriere scoring 22 points, Tristan Brackman had an excellent game from behind the arc nailing five three-pointers in this game on his way to a 19 point performance, and Nick McInness added another 13 points.

Barriere’s last game of the weekend had them match up against provincially ninth ranked Gabrielle Roy Phoenix located in Surrey. Luck wasn’t on Barriere’s side in this hard fought battle.
