EDMONTON, ALTA. - The first placed Concordia Thunder defeated the NAIT Ooks 98-64 in ACAC men's basketball action Friday night in the NAIT gymnasium.
It was all Concordia in this one as the first placed team came in ready to play. The Thunder outscored the Ooks in 51-24 in the opening half. The second half was not much different as NAIT would be outscored once again in the third quarter 28-18. The fourth quarter the Ooks would show signs of life outscoring the Thunder by three, but it was too little too late as the home team would fall 98-64.
"We didn't compete with a level of urgency that is necessary to even be allowed in the gym," said Ooks' head coach Mike Connolly following the loss.
