Burnaby Mountain does not have much time to regroup after dropping its second consecutive game at the B.C. high school AAA boys' basketball championships.
The top-10 ranked Lions were beaten 67-47 by honourable mention Pitt Meadows Marauders yesterday afternoon in Langley, following a first-round upset by Caledonia on Tuesday.
The results dropped the Burnaby/New Westminster champions to the bottom bracket and a Thursday morning matchup against the North Peace Oscars at the Langley Events Centre.
Against Pitt, Mountain shot a dismal 20 per cent from the floor and collectively made just one-of-16 three-point attempts. Mountain led at halftime 28-27 following an 18-9 second quarter.
The Marauders made good on more than 45 per cent of their buckets and beat up the Lions under the glass, blocking eight Mountain shots and outscoring the Burnaby team 22-6 in the paint.
Jaryn Bailey had 14 points and Atdhe Hajrizi scored 10 for Mountain. Jordan Rich led Pitt with 29 points and 15 rebounds, while Sebastien Marshall tallied 21 points and eight assists for the winners.
