KAMLOOPS —  The B.C. boys basketball championships are underway in Langley -- day one -- and three Kamloops teams have seen their first action.

A year after missing out on a provincial championship by less than ten points, the number two seed South Kam Titans got a push from the number fifteen team from Campbell River.

South Kam won 58-51 with Nick Sarai scoring 21 points for the Titans.

Ripley Martin had 17 points and Reid Jansen came up a point short of a triple double --- with 9 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds.

South Kam will face Duchess Park of Prince George in the quarterfinals.

Duchess Park took down the Rick Hansen Hurricanes.

A year ago Rick Hansen defeated South Kam by six points in the championship game.

In the 2018 double "AA" championship the Westsyde Whundas, seeded second, started with a 55-37 win over Southridge.

Westsyde remains undefeated this season at 32-and-0.

The Whundas will play Clarence Fulton from Vernon in the quarterfinals.

The Sa-Hali Sabres went into the tournament as the number 14 seed and lost 93-43 to third ranked King George of Vancouver.
