A total of 14 teams took to the courts of the Russell Gamble Gymnasium over the holidays for the 22nd annual Festive “C” Son Challenge.

With games running from the afternoon of Dec. 27 to the evening of Dec. 30, there was plenty of free basketball action for fans to take in. The finals of the 12-team men's tournament saw the undefeated Friendship House Cubs take on the Crest High Ballerz, the second time the two had met after the Cubs won 69-54 in the semi-final earlier in the day. The High Ballerz earned their spot in the final with an 82-74 win over the Friendship House Chiefs in the b-bracket final and made the most of the opportunity by winning the tournament with an 83-69 victory.

The Most Sportsmanlike Team award went to the Night Sailors, and the Most Sportsmanlike Player was Glen Blandov of the Friendship House Cubs.

There were just two teams playing each other in the 15 and under division, with Lax Kw'alaams winning both games against the Friendship House by scores of 65-58 and 71-67. John Tait of Lax Kw'alaams was named the Most Sportsmanlike Player for that division.
