Briercrest College Clippers earn dominant win over RDC Queens

Angenay Williams scores game-high 39 points for Clippers

Clippers 93 Queens 75

The RDC Queens simply had no answer for Angenay Williams.

The American import went off for a game-high 39 points, leading the nationally ranked Briercrest College Clippers to a dominant 93-76 win over the Queens Saturday afternoon.

Williams is currently second in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference behind Olds College Broncos Brittney Thibeaux with 28.8 points per game.

“We didn’t have an answer for any time we’ve played her. She’s an unbelievable talent. She played Div. 1 in the States. She’s just a phenomenal athlete and nothing we seemed to throw at her could stop her, it was tough,” said Queens head coach Mandy Botham.

Mistakes and missing easy baskets hurt the Queens in the loss. Not only did they get off to a slow start, falling behind 19-6 in the first quarter, the Queens turned the ball over 31 times in the loss and shot just 47.8 per cent from the free throw line.

“I thought today was frustrating. We were inconsistent with our effort and our execution,” said Botham.

“At times we did really well and other times, just hard to recognize my team on the floor. We struggled with inconsistency. Something we’ll have to work on.”

Two bright spots for the Queens, they actually outscored the Clippers 24-23 in the fourth quarter and shot 38 per cent from three point range.

Second-year guard Harneet Sidhu led the way for RDC with 17 points and was efficient from the field hitting six-of-10 shots. On the flip side, the young guard also turned the ball over 10 times in the loss.

Second-year guard Valentina Rincon of Calgary also had a productive game off the bench, scoring 12 points. She was the Queens player of the game.

“I was really impressed with the way she took leadership out on the floor. She was communicating effectively on defence,” Botham said.

“She was getting some good looks and taking those shots with confidence, I just thought everything she did was good today.”
