Owls clean up at Heritage Woods

KSS, ranked No. 1 in B.C. high school boys basketball, go 4-0 at Kodiak Classic

The KSS Owls will hold on to their No. 1 ranking in B.C. high school boys AAAA basketball after taking care of business in a convincing manner at their first tournament of the 2015-16 season.

The Owls downed the second-ranked Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs 113-93 on Saturday in Port Coquitlam to capture the Kodiak Classic at Heritage Woods.

With a balanced attack KSS, which went 4-0 over the weekend, averaged 108 points per game, while allowing 71.

Kelowna also defeated No. 4 ranked Kitsilano 117-93, No. 10 Terry Fox 106-59 and Killarney 95-38.

While head coach Harry Parmar thought his team’s defence could have been a little tighter, he was happy with the results.

“We went down there to see where we’re at against other teams and the kids played well,” said Parmar. “We had balanced scoring all across the board, which was good to see.”

In the final against Churchill, Matt Lafontaine and rookie Mason Bourcier each had 25 points. Seniors Parker Simson and Nan Sandhu had 16 and 15 points, respectively.

Grade 11 post, Grant Shephard, had one of the best individual efforts of the weekend, with 42 points and 19 rebounds against Kitsilano.

Parmar said the Owls weren’t really pushed but that could change this coming weekend as KSS heads to Edmonton for the REB tournament at Jasper Place, where two American teams are on the draw.

“We didn’t face a whole lot of adversity (at Heritage Woods) so we’re looking forward to this tournament,” he said. “You need adversity to keep improving.”
