Kings and Queens basketball fall at Briercrest

It was a tough end to the first semester for RDC Kings and Queens basketball.

On the road Friday in Medicine Hat, the squads then traveled to Canaport, Sask. to take on the Briercrest College Clippers.

The Queens fell 107-94 and the Kings dropped a 106-89 decision.

Lauren Cardinal and Sophie Melin led the way offensively for the Queens, each picking up a double-double.

Melin was the leading scoring with 24 points, adding 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal. Cardinal poured in 21 points and also had 10 rebounds. Second-year guard Harneet Sidhu also had a strong game, putting up 16 points, a game-high seven assists and six rebounds.

Valentina Rincon also chipped in eight points off the bench. The Queens shot 47 per cent from the field, 30 per cent from three, but hit just 56 per cent of free throws.

Angenay Williams feasted on the Queens again, scoring a game-high 47 points. The guard went 17 of 34 from the field and hit 10 free throws.

The Queens have lost five in a row and sit at 4-6 heading into the second half of the season. They will take on the Olds College Broncos next in Olds on Jan. 18.

The Kings opened up a 24-16 lead in the first quarter and led at halftime but were outscored 68-43 in the second half on the way to the loss.

Spencer Klassen was the Kings top scorer, putting up 20 points. Tyronn King added 16 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals. Brett Hochhausen had 12 points in 20 minutes off the bench. Nicholas Gregersen led the way for the Clippers with 28 points.
