Kings 96 Vikings 69

CAMROSE — The RDC Kings used their superior talent to defeat the Camrose Augustana Vikings 96-69 with an underwhelming performance in men’s college preseason basketball action on Wednesday.

“It was just our third game this fall, the first one on the road. So there was a bit of rust,” said Kings coach Craig Behan.

“We have better talent than Camrose and we let up a bit with our intensity level.

“We didn’t play our style for most of the game. We lost a lot of turnovers to a team that wasn’t pressing and we didn’t rebound worth a damn. So there are some things to work on.”

Sean Giscombe paced the Kings with 15 points, while Graeme McCallum added 14 and Joel Carroll had 12 for the winners, who will meet either Lakeland or Augustana in the King’s University College tournament in Edmonton at 6 p.m. today.

Vikings 72 Queens 53

“We didn’t play our best game,” said RDC Queens coach Dawn Smyth, following a 72-53 loss to Augustana in the women’s contest.

“We only shot 10 per cent in the first half, so it wasn’t one of our better games. But we did learn that we have to bring our intensity every game because no one is going to give it to us.”

Chelsea Dyck and Megan Ivancic each scored nine points for the Queens. Dyck also added five rebounds.
