B.C. Kids claim basketball title

On July 30, The B.C. Kids men’s basketball team came up from the loser’s bracket to defeat the No. 1 seed, Woodbury Law, in the Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department’s summer league. Ryan McQuillan shot the game-winning 3-pointer with two seconds to go to clinch the 50-47 win.

B.C. Kids had to win three games in a row to claim the title. They beat Boulder Dam Credit Union 65-56 in the first game. They easily maneuvered past Woodbury Law in the championship game, giving Woodbury Law its first loss of the tournament, said Kelly Lehr, sports coordinator. The two teams had to meet again, with both teams having one loss.

With big scoring from Dave Randall (11 points per game) and Jordan Peel (11 points per game) from Woodbury Law and McQuillan (13 points per game), James Wilson (13 points per game) and Mike Hernandez (17 points per game) from B.C. Kids, the game remained a tie until the final seconds.

The next men’s basketball league is scheduled to begin Jan. 3. Games will be played Tuesdays and Thursdays through the beginning of March.
