Cowichan Secondary’s junior boys basketball team was sunk by a buzzer-beating three-pointer as the team finished eighth in the Thunderbird Classic last weekend.

The T-Birds lost 67-42 to Oak Bay in the first round, then fell to St. Michael’s University School 68-49 in the second round. It looked like they were going to win the seventh-place game against Dover Bay before a desperation three-pointer put victory in the hands of the Dolphins.

Handsworth ended up claiming first place, while Stanley Choo was named MVP. Behind Handsworth were W.J. Mouat, St. George’s, Oak Bay, Claremont, St. Michael’s, Dover Bay and Cowichan.
