High School

Kelowna Owls Mitch Goodwin shacking the rust off

The most amazing thing about watching Mitch Goodwin weave his magic on the basketball court Thursday afternoon was to realize that the player who many call the most accomplished point guard in the B.C. high school ranks, was actually just starting to dust the rust off his game.

He led his No. 9-ranked Owls to a 68-61 victory over the No. 6-ranked and host Kitsilano Blue Demons in the quarterfinal round of the Telus Basketball Classic.

Goodwin was doing the kinds of things with a basketball that players who don’t practice for two weeks because of provincial Triple A volleyball tournament commitments could never dream of pulling off.

Never mind the game-high 14 points he scored to move the Owls into a semifinal contest today (5:45 p.m.) against the St. George’s Saints, he was simply unstoppable down the stretch drive of the contest, breaking all measure of pressure and traps and getting into the open floor where his next-level vision and passing made all of his teammates so much better.
