Eagles climb to fifth place

Kwantlen Polytechnic University women's team wins three straight

The only thing to slow down the Kwantlen Eagles women’s basketball is a six-week break in the schedule.

After losing three of their first four PacWest league games, the Eagles have reeled off three wins in a row to move into fifth place in the nine-team provincial lead.

Tipping off against the Langara Falcons last Tuesday night in Vancouver, Kwantlen improved to 4-3 (won-lost) with a 55-46 victory. They are two games up on the 2-5 Falcons, who are in seventh place, one position out of a playoff spot.

Sam McPhail, a second-year centre from Vancouver, had a solid all-around game for the Eagles with 12 rebounds, two steals, a pair of blocks while scoring five points.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s men’s team didn’t have the same success, losing 96-64 to the Falcons. The Eagles struggled in two areas of the game, collecting only 33 rebounds to Langara’s 60 while shooting just 37 per cent from the free throw line.

Aaron Ram, a first year guard from Seaquam Secondary, was the team’s high scorer with 23 points. A.J. Adusei of North Delta added 14 points and four assists.

Adusei leads the league in scoring, averaging 28.86 points per game, and is ranked seventh with 3.71 assists per game.

The seventh-place Eagles fell to 2-5 on the season, two games back of both Langara and the Douglas College Royals, who are tied for fifth.

Kwantlen’s two teams resume league play on Jan. 13, when they travel to Prince George for a game with the University of Northern B.C. Timberwolves.
