The No. 1-ranked Kelowna Owls senior boys basketball team will be shooting for its third tournament win of the season this coming weekend when they head to the Snowball Classic at Abbotsford Secondary.

The Owls first game is Thursday afternoon against the winner of a morning game between MEI and St. Georges.

KSS is coming off another dominant performance at the Legal Beagle tournament at Terry Fox.

The Owls claimed their second title of 2015-16 with a 97-68 blowout of the No. 2 ranked Oak Bay Oaks in the championship.

In a balanced attack, tournament all-star Davide Ciancio led the Owls with 22 points. First team all-star Mason Bourcier had 18 points, Nav Sandhu scored 17, while tournament MVP Matt Lafontaine added 13.

Kelowna opened the tourney with a lopsided 113-57 victory over No. 8 Kitsilano. Bourcier and Grant Shephard led the way on the scoresheet with 22 points each, while Bourcier added a team high nine rebounds.

In their second game of the day, the Owls showed some fatigue and tired legs but still managed to beat the 10th ranked W.J. Mouat Hawks 92-79.

The Hawks held a two-point lead in the second half, 55-53, before the Owls went on a 15-0 run to finally take control of the game.

Parker Simson scored 18 points, while Bourcier and Lafontaine chipping in with 17 each.
