RDC used a 30 point second quarter to earn the victory and added another 45 in the second half to close out the game.

Jouvon Edison was the leading scorer for the Broncos with 20 points.

The Olds College Broncos topped the RDC Queens in ACAC play for the second straight night.

Brittney Thibeaux had a monster night for the Broncos with 46 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks. She made 18 of 31 field goals in the contest.
