2014 Most Valuable Player – #8 Luka Lizdek – Kitsilano
Luka Lizdek is the point guard and leader for the Kitsilano Grade 9 Boys Basketball Team. His offensive and defensive dominance helped Kitsilano to a 39 – 1 record in the 2013 – 2014 season. Luka looks to make his teammates better first and foremost. His understanding of the point guard position (at such a young age) and what it means to the team is Luka’s biggest strength. Luka earned first team all-star, or MVP, in each of the 8 tournaments Kits played in during the 2013-2014 season, including the MVP at the Provincial Championships. Luka’s performance at the Grade 9 Boys Provincial Basketball Championships was as close to perfect as a player could get. This same Kitsilano team won the Grade 8 Provincials last season, and Luka was very focused on repeating as Provincial Champions again before this season began. This focus along with that of his teammates’ focus helped Kits realize their goals and return as Provincial Champions.
