The Vancouver Volcanoes began the night receiving rings and ended it having had rings run around them.
Nearly 11 months removed from winning their first International Basketball League title, Volcano players and front-office personnel were presented with championship rings before Friday’s game against the Bellingham Slam.
The ceremony introduced each member from that title-winning roster, and concluded with the unveiling of a championship banner that hangs over the east-side bleachers of the O’Connell Sports Complex.
Players celebrated euphorically last July when the final seconds ticked off the clock in the IBL title game.
And for a few minutes Friday, they were able to reminisce on what remains a treasured achievement.
