Danish basketball club teams visiting Vanier

Games will be played both Thursday, May 21 and Friday, May 22

Four teams from a Danish club basketball program will be at G.P. Vanier on May 21-22 to play some international hoops.

The stop is part of their West Coast tour.

“Their #1 team features some national team players and will play the Vancouver Island University Mariners men’s team on Thursday night at 7:15 p.m.” said Larry Street.

“Our Vanier team, featuring Anders Storgaard from that Danish club who played here this past year (Vancouver Island first all star and Best Defensive Player) will play another team from the club at 5:30 p.m. There is also a girls’ game at 3:45, and a boys’ game at 2 p.m.”

Action resumes Friday with game times the same (2 p.m., 3:45 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.). “Our Vanier boys will try to take on the Danish #1 team at 7:15 p.m.,” Street noted.

The Danish students are staying with local home stays from the three schools, and will be visiting the Valley until Sunday, May 24.
