EDMONTON, Alta. - The NAIT Ooks men's basketball team defeated the King's Eagles 93-76 on Saturday night in the NAIT Gymnasium.
The battle of the birds was a tight one through the first three quarters. NAIT maintained a small lead for most of the game, but the Eagles never went away. It wasn't until the fourth quarter when the Ooks pulled away, as they outscored the King's 28-18. NAIT was led once again by Sean-Michael Clancey who put up 30 points, which is two better than his league-leading 28 points per game.
"We were pretty disappointed with our effort on Friday night. We came into tonight's contest with a focus on competing at a much higher level, and the effort was closer to what we expect," said Ooks head coach Slav Kornik. "Hopefully, it's a learning lesson for us, and we're ready to compete against a very tough Keyano team next week."
