Keyano Huskies 73 Concordia University of Edmonton Thunder 76

 

In what had to be the loudest men’s basketball game in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference history, the visiting Concordia University of Edmonton Thunder edged the host Keyano College Huskies 76-73.

The noise factor was raised more than a few notches, due to the fact that a Back To The 80s YMM / Battle Of The Legends concert started at 8 p.m. in one of the field houses at the Syncrude Sport & Wellness Centre (SSWC).

Although the Canadian National Resources Ltd. Gymnasium is separated from the concert by an indoor soccer pitch...the musical vibrations could be heard and felt throughout the men’s game.

In fact, there was a slight mist hovering over the court for the second half....special effects from the concert having floated over.

Tied at 35-35 after 20 minutes, the Huskies were outscored 27-18 in the third quarter.

A spectacular breakaway dunk by Huskies' Stefan Jovic with 1:14 in regulation brought the home team within a point 72-71.

Ronald Bacon Jr. making two out of four free throw attempts in the final seconds secured the win for the Thunder.

Jovic was Huskies nod for Player of the Game honours with 17 points, nine rebound and two steals in 34 minutes. D'Aubre Doucette added 17 points to go along with two steals and six boards.

Huskies leading scorer for the early season, Augusta Kievisaite (20.2 points per game) was held to four points in the first half.

A big time three-pointer by Sarah MacDonald in the closing seconds of the third period gave the Huskies a 38-31 advantage...one they would never surrender winning the contest 50-45.

MacDonald was Huskies Player of the Game with 12 points, six rebounds and two steals. Toure had a team high 16 points and 13 rebounds.

Huskies outrebounded the Thunder 35-27.

Keyano Huskies 60 Concordia University of Edmonton Thunder 72

 

For her first three years of post-secondary  basketball, Fort McMurray’s Danielle MacLellan suited up for the Keyano Huskies.

For the 2018-2019 season though, the 5-foot-11 forward/centre took her hoop talents to Edmonton enrolling in Bachelor of Arts at Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE).

The CUE Thunder rolled into Fort McMurray tonight to face off against the host Huskies at the Syncrude & Sport Wellness Centre’s Canadian National Resources Ltd. Gymnasium.

MacLellan, matched up against Huskies’ veteran 5-foot-10 post Moiyan Toure, scored the first two baskets of the game to spark her team to a 72-60 victory.

She would finish with eight points and nine rebounds in 21 minutes.

Controlling the Thunder offence, guard Morgan Dool would earn Player of the Game honours for the Edmonton squad, dropping a game-high 25 points to go along with four steals while playing all but three minutes of the game.

Huskies Player of the Game was Toure with 21 points and 14 boards.

Augusta Kievisaite added 19 points.

Averaging nearly 20 three-point attempts in their first four ACAC games of the season, the Huskies only took 10 in this match.
