Just a day after one of their best performances of the year, the RDC Queens came up empty against the SAIT Trojans.
On the road in Calgary, the Trojans got the best of RDC in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference basketball play in a dominant 57-39 win.
No Queen hit double figures and rookie guard Harneet Sidhu was their leading scorer with eight points. The Queens shot just 23.5 per cent from the field and turned the ball over 30 times in the loss.
The RDC Kings played better defence on the road in Calgary but still came up short against the top team in Canada.
RDC only trailed by one after the opening quarter but was outscored 28-12 in the second and was never able to recover in the 87-72 loss. They did push back in the fourth with a 25-point quarter.
Fourth-year guard Spencer Klassen of Red Deer once again carried the Kings in the contest, with 33 points, hitting on five threes. Khurram Sultan was the only other King in double figures with 12 points and Malik Smith pulled down 11 boards.
Three of five starters for SAIT scored 20 points or more, as John Smith led the way with 22 points.
