Cowichan’s Junior Thunderbirds are too strong for many opponents even without their best players on the floor.

Cowichan romped to an 80-25 junior boys’ basketball victory over Gulf Islands last Tuesday at Cowichan Secondary School while giving guys off the bench the most playing time.

Jeevan Sall led the scoring with 22 points while Corwin Trent (17) and Callan Rakimov (10) also hit double figures.

Josh Brown accounted for most of the Gulf Islands scoring with 14 points.

Cowichan plays its next game Thursday at home against Brentwood College A, starting at 3:30 p.m.

The Thunderbird Classic tournament follows Feb. 1 and 2. Walnut Grove of Langley, Handsworth of North Vancouver and Valleyview of Kamloops are in the field.

Cowichan plays its opening game Friday at 3 p.m. against Stelly’s. St. Michael’s, Claremont and Oak Bay are the other island teams.
