Kings 93 Trojans 84

The RDC Kings also beat SAIT on Friday, topping the Trojans 93-84 in a high flying affair.

RDC scored 28 points in the fourth quarter and Daniel Powell was once again massive in the victory with another double-double. The fourth-year from forward from Arizona had 33 points and 22 boards in the win.

Dshawn Tyrell, a first-year guard from Malton, Ont. had 21 points for RDC.

The Kings lead 44-32 at the half, but allowed the Trojans back in the game after the visitors scored 29 points in the third quarter.

Both the Queens and Kings are on the road tomorrow.

Kings 3 Trojans 4 (OT)

The RDC Kings hockey team dropped a 4-3 overtime game to the Trojans.
