Basketball dominated the Boston Pizza RDC athlete of the week voting.

Kings guard Ian Tevis not only received the RDC award, but was named the ACAC male athlete of the week. Second-year guard Eva Bonde picked up the top female award for RDC.

Tevis showed why he’s one of the premier players in the province as the Kings split a weekend doubleheader in Medicine Hat against the Rattlers.

The Kings lost 76-73 on Friday with Tevis finishing with 23 points, two steals, two assists and six rebounds. On Saturday he nailed a three-point basket with three seconds remaining in overtime to give the Kings an exciting 99-96 victory.

The Kent, Wash., native, who is in Kinesiology and Sports Studies, finished with 42 points, one steal, two assists and seven rebounds.

Bonde also turned in a strong performance as the Queens split their weekend series against the Rattlers.

The Denmark native had four points, six assists, one steal and 10 rebounds in a 68-52 loss Friday. On Saturday afternoon the point guard hit seven points and grabbed 12 rebounds in a 77-66 victory.

Her defence also played a major role in the win, which kept the Queens in the battle for a playoff berth.

The RDC basketball squads have a tough weekend ahead as they host the Lethbridge Kodiaks Friday and Saturday.

The women tip off at 6 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday with the men to follow.

The Lethbridge women have an 11-0 record while the Queens sit fifth in the ACAC South Division at 5-8 and are two points back of Medicine Hat. The Kings lead the South with a 9-4 mark, but Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and SAIT are all 8-3.
