Eagles win a pair at home

First games of the season at Kwantlen Polytechnic University campus

The Kwantlen Eagles basketball teams took advantage of winless opposition last weekend, helping the men’s and women’s club go a combined three-for-four in PacWest league play.

The women’s team thumped the Columbia Bible College Bearcats 119-52 Friday night at the Surrey campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University, while then men topped the Bearcats 94-82.

In New Westminster Saturday night, the women edged the Douglas College Royals 50-48 to even their record at 3-3 (won-lost), while the men fell 96-88.

Playing on their home court for the first time this season, the Eagles dominated Columbia Bible College from start to finish in the women’s contest, converting 21 of 47 three-point shots. Anna Work led the way with 37 points, also adding seven assists and seven rebounds, helping Kwantlen crack the 100-point mark for the first time in school history.

The Eagles trailed for much of Saturday’s game, before taking the lead in the final minute. Centre Samantha McPhail dominated the boards with 10 rebounds for Kwantlen, now in fifth place in the nine-team league.

Guard Aaron Ram of Surrey led Kwantlen’s men’s team to their win Friday. The graduate of Seaquam Secondary in North Delta netted 21 points, with Princess Margaret graduate Ali Bosir adding 18 points and 18 assists. Point guard A.J. Adusei of North Delta chipped in with 17 points and seven assists.

Kwantlen finished the weekend at 2-4, one game out of sixth place and a PacWest playoff position after their loss to Douglas on Saturday.

Adusei led the scoring with 26 points, with Ram adding another 25. Bosir, a six-foot-six centre, had his second double double with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

Both Eagles will be in Vancouver tomorrow (Thursday) for games against the Langara Falcons.
