Vernon Concept Physio fell 72-61 to Kelowna Appraisals in Kelowna Men’s 35+ Basketball League play Monday night.

Kelowna Appraisals has won the league title the last three years and watched as Wannes Luppins opened the scoring with an easy put-in off the boards.

Just a minutes later, Luppins added another two-foot rebound.

Kelowna Appraisals pulled ahead at the end of the first quarter where they led by 10.

By the half, Concept closed the gap to just nine as they struggled with perimeter shooting and the Appraisals’ zone defence.

Concept began building momentum part way through the third quartter as they began breaking down the zone dee through two unanswered treys on the perimeter by Luke Yanik.

A quick two-minute change to man defence hurt Concept.

This is Vernon’s first year in the Kelowna league.
