T-Birds split pair
Cowichan Thunderbirds split their first two senior boys’ high school basketball games with Ronnie Doman at the helm as coach.
Doman took over on an interim basis from Sandeep Heer, who stepped down last week for personal reasons.
Cowichan hosted the Claremont Spartans in exhibition play Friday and lost 70-59.
Andrew Larson led the T-Birds with 23 points. Jerod Dorby scored 19 and added 13 rebounds while Cyrus Gray collected 12 points and seven rebounds.
The T-Birds won Saturday’s exhibition game at Mount Douglas 66-61 in overtime.
Dorby set the pace with 16 points and 14 rebounds. Larson and Gray had 15 points apiece.
Marcus Morano hit a pair of clutch three-pointers in overtime.
