The No. 1-ranked Kelowna Christian Knights lived up to their billing by capturing the Glenlyon Norfolk senior boys basketball tournament last weekend.

The Knights were convincing in defeating the host team 85-62 in Saturday night’s final.

Kai McGrath paced the Knights with 22 points, Noah Reich added 17 points and 12 rebounds, while Brendan Rempel had 10 points in the title game.

The tournament didn’t start as easily as KCS needed overtime to beat Bodwell 81-74.

“Bodwell, who carries a number of international student athletes, gave us all we could handle,” said Knights coach Gib Hinz.

Kelowna’s Simon Benson had 21 points, including seven three-pointers, while McGrath added 19.

In the semifinal, the Knights took care of West Point Grey 79-48.

McGrath had 17 points and Rempel added 15 as KCS jumped out to a 16-point first quarter lead and never looked back.

Brendan Rempel was named the tournament MVP for the Knights, ranked No. 1 in B.C. boys A basketball.

The Knights will be at OKM for an exhibiton game Friday, then will host Abby Christian Saturday.
