Clan women pound Bisons

The SFU Clan women's basketball team prepared to get back to the business of conference games by beating their old Canada West rivals, the University of Manitoba Bisons, 83-61 Wednesday.

The Clan showed they didn't indulge too much over the short Christmas break by charging out to a 14-4 lead less than six minutes into the game and never looked back. They led 44-32 at halftime.

The Bisons did manage to scratch their way back to within 10 points after the break, but a 22-0 run by SFU put them out to pasture permanently.

"It's always nice to get that first win after the Christmas break," said Clan assistant coach Courtney Gerwing in a release. "It's tough to be sharp after a week off.".

Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe led all Clan scorers with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Kelsey Binns scored 16, Chelsea Reist netted 15 and New Westminster's Kia Van Laare also hit double digits with 10.

The Clan will play the Trinity Western Spartans in Langley on Friday before traveling to Bellingham, WA on Saturday for a conference game against the Western Washington University Vikings.
