A definitive game for DRIVE Alum @jussunga who leads UNBC to a monumental 86-76 win vs UBC in the Canada West playoffs.

Justin dazzled from start to finish as he led UNBC to their greatest win in Canada West history.

The former BC MVP for Burnaby South showed why he is one of the best players to come out of BC in the last decade by continually making huge plays and controlling the game from start to finish.

One of our best DRIVE players ever.

Proud of you Jus! 🙏🏀🇨🇦🏆 #DriveFam
...

DRIVE standout @roop_jaswal has been an important part of our program for the past 8 years.

He was a great youth player for DRIVE and has continued that all the way through HS now in his Gr. 12 year at Steveston London.

Roop recently poured in 40p to lead Steveston London to a big win vs MacNeil in Richmond league play.

Roop is one of the best players in the Province and also one of the the best players ever at Steveston London.

An ultra skilled player who has worked extremely hard to get to where he is!

Proud of you Roop! 🙏🏀🇨🇦🏆 #DriveFam

DRIVE Alum @linder.luke has made the most of his Prep year @ctawest.

Luke has proven to be one of the best scorers in all of Canada`s prep ranks.

He`s had multiple big games vs some of the best Prep schools displaying his natural ability to create his own shot and make shots in the mid-range.

Luke is being recruited by many USports schools including University of Fraser Valley and University of Victoria.

We have no doubt that Luke is on his way to a successful University career.

Way to go Luke, proud of you! 🙏🇨🇦🏀🏆 #DriveFam
...

DRIVE legend @jameswoods1193 put on a trademark performance in his last regular season game for @ubc_mbb in front of a very large crowd at War Memorial Gym.

James poured in 28p on a spectacular array of dribble moves, long jumpers and floaters, leading UBC to a big win over Calgary.

He played with the heart and passion that has made him one of the best DRIVE players ever and one of UBC`s great players.

James received a well deserved standing ovation when he checked out of the game with 2:00 mins left.

Congrats Woodsie, we are super proud of you! 🙏🏀🇨🇦🏆 #DriveFam #BoyWonder

DRIVE kids playing at halftime on @jameswoods1193 Sr. Night! 🙏🏀🇨🇦🏆 #DriveFam ...

How do you tribute someone who was larger than life?

We lost an important part of our DRIVE community with the loss of Stanojko Zaharijevic, the father of Luka, Petar & Adi, all dedicated and loyal coaches for many years in our DRIVE program.

Stan had an extremely positive affect on anyone he came across and was a pillar of our DRIVE community over the years.

He was one of the first parents to trust us when he brought his extremely talented young son Luka to our DRIVE program almost 20 years ago.

Over the years, it was such a treat to watch Stan enjoy (and yell) from the sidelines as Luka blossomed into one of the best DRIVE players ever and one of the best players in BC in that decade.

Stan`s loss hurts us all so very deeply.

His love for all the DRIVE players, constant encouragement & his warm and kind words will be sorely missed.

Seeing him wear DRIVE clothes and be so proud of not only Luka, but also Petar & Adi being dedicated staff for DRIVE is something that warmed our hearts.

Sending love to everyone impacted by this tragic loss, especially the immediate family.

Basketball is such an amazing sport that allows you to meet people who truly become your family.

It`s true what they say, "family isn`t always blood."

RIP ❤️

Please visit our IG story to find a Go Fund me link to support the Zaharijevic family during this tough time.

DRIVE Alum @jerricpalma recently had his Sr. Night at @westernbasketball.

Jerric has started every game he has played for Western the last 3 years and is one of the most important players they have had in recent years.

He has consistently averaged double figures and is one of the best 3pt shooters in the entire country.

Jerric paved the way for recent DRIVE grads @coledumont_, @tiny.mcj & @mikylemalabuyoc to join him in the great @westernbasketball program.

Jerric is graduating with honors from Western and we are excited to see where his basketball and academic career take him next.

One of our all-time DRIVE players, Congrats Jerric! 🙏🇨🇦🏀🏆 #DriveFam
