Clan star has monster game

Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe had a monster game for the Clan scoring 26 points and bringing down 16 rebounds as the Simon Fraser University Clan defeated the visiting University of Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks 71-55 on Saturday.

The wins give SFU a 9-2 record in Great Northwest Athletic Conference NCAA Division II play and a 16-3 overall record.

Next up for Simon Fraser is the Western Washington University Vikings, who clipped the Clan by two points in a game earlier this year in Bellingham, on Saturday starting at 7 p.m.

The men’s team didn’t have the same success as the women, although a narrow loss Saturday was termed “a strong step forward” by the Clan’s Anto Olah.

The Australian scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in a 73-69 loss to the Montana State University-Billings Yellowjackets.

The Clan are 6-13 overall and have a 1-10 GNAC record. They will take on the Central Washington Wildcats in Ellensburg on Thursday.

• Cody Coombes, a graduate of Burnaby North secondary, defeated Casey Quinn of the North Idaho College Cardinals by decision in the 174-pound weight class at a dual wrestling men’s meet in Cour d’Alene, Idaho on Thursday. SFU lost the meet 29-15.
