I know this doesn't have anything to do with current BC highschool basketball and the moderator may delete this post but wanted to post anyways.

Gil Cheung played at Richmond High in the late 90's, he coached highschool, provincial and college teams in BC before moving on to the head coach position at Brandon university.

Recently a student selected Gil to take a half-court shot on his behalf to win free tuition. I'll let you guess what happens.

This is currently being shown on:

Over a million hits on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnUEhREh5iQ

CNN: http://www.cnn.com/video/?hpt=hp_c4#/video/sports/2013/02/18/early-half-court-shot-tuition.cnn

ESPN: http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/8956532/brandon-university-coach-half-court-heave-pays-student-tuition

Always cool when a local guy gets his 15 minutes of fame.
