The battle for local basketball bragging rights is back as the UBC Thunderbirds are set to host their crosstown rival SFU Red Leafs in the 57th edition of the Buchanan Cup on Friday October, 28th with a 7:30 p.m. tip off at UBC's historic War Memorial Gym.

DRIVE Alum & @ubc_mbb star @jameswoods1193 was featured in an awesome article in Varsity Letters previewing the big game:

"Deep down in his basketball soul, James Woods has always been Boy Wonder. It’s the nickname he picked up before he was old enough to shave, before he even started to play high school basketball for Langley’s Walnut Grove Gators."

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

We lost an important part of our DRIVE community with the loss of Todd Anderson.

Todd had an extremely positive affect on everyone he came across in life, at DRIVE it was no different.

He started out in DRIVE Surrey and moved over to DRIVE Langley once it got opened. Both of these DRIVE communities will miss him dearly.

Sending love to everyone impacted by this tragic loss, especially Todd's immediate family.

Basketball is such an amazing sport that creates bonds & shared memories.

We thank Todd for helping us deliver & promote the sport to so many youngsters. He was a great guy and staunch supporter of our program. We were lucky to have him.

RIP ❤️

Marvin has continued to improve every year. He's come up clutch in so many games & had great performances vs some of the most talented teams in the Pacific NW.

Marvin follows a long line of some of the greatest young players to ever play in our program.

He's humble, hard working and one of the most talented young players we've ever had!
