The No. 2 B.C. ranked Kelowna Owls are at Vancouver College this weekend for the Emerald senior boys basketball tournament.

The No. 2 B.C. ranked Kelowna Owls are at Vancouver College this weekend for the Emerald senior boys basketball tournament.

KSS will play its first game against No. 6 Pitt Meadows.

The Owls are fresh off a pair of Okanagan league wins this week to push their regular season mark to 5-0.

After a disappointing loss to Kent-Meridian last weekend at the King Holiday Hoopfest in Seattle, the Owls rebounded on Monday night with a 110-61 win over Mt. Boucherie.

A balanced Owls attack was led by Grade 11 guard Mitch Goodwin with 18 points, while Tanner Leimert and DeBoe Truss had 14 each, and Braxston Bunce added 13 points and 12 rebounds.

For the Bears, Luke Oloffs led the way with 15 points followed by Adam Tilley with 13.

The following night the Owls travelled to Salmon Arm where they routed the Golds 105-50.

Kelowna shot 45.6 per cent (36-79) for the game as Grade 11 Dejo Oyelese topped the scoresheet with 22 points, followed by Goodwin with 17.  Senior Ross Ciancio had a season high 13 along with Leimert.  Neven Knezevic was the top rebounder with 11. 

The victory was not without its costs as Owls’ leading scorer DeBoe Truss went down with an ankle injury in the first quarter and did not return for the remainder of the game.  His status remains day to day.
