Klassen with another big night, Kings top Kodiaks

The RDC Kings picked up a huge win over the Lethbridge College Kodiaks.

They knocked off the Kodiaks 81-72 for their second straight Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference victory.

Red Deer native Spencer Klassen had his eighth 30-point contest of the year with 31 in the win. It was also the fifth time in the last six games for the fourth-year guard from Red Deer that he was over the 30-point mark.

He went 12-14 from the free throw line, pulled down 12 rebounds and only hit one three.

Kings guard Malik Smith had 13 points.

RDC was up five points at halftime but were outscored 18-14 in the third quarter. In the fourth, they put up 28 points and only allowed 20 to pick up the victory.

Lincoln Anderson had 27 points for the Kodiaks.

The RDC Queens struggled in another losing effort against the Kodiaks.

RDC dropped its fourth straight game Friday in ACAC women’s basketball play.

Lethbridge held RDC to just nine points in the third quarter and that was the difference in the 68-61 victory for the visitors at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.

At the half, RDC had a 31-30 lead, but the Kodiaks outscored the Queens 19-9 in the third. RDC pushed back with a 21-point fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough to erase the deficit.

First-year Harneet Sidhu led the Queens with 16 points, six rebounds and three assists. She also was four-of-seven from three point range. Second-year guard Sandra Garica-Bernal was busy on the glass with 14 rebounds and 11 points. She also had five assists in the loss. Rookie Katie Ballhorn of Wetaskiwin also had a strong game with 15 points and eight rebounds.

The Queens take on the Kodiaks at 1 p.m. at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre Saturday and the Kings play at 3 p.m.
