Rebels finish championship season 14-0
By Nik Kowalski
Fourteen games played, 14 games won. 2019-20 has been a season of perfection for the Red River College men’s basketball team — their latest feat an MCAC title.
RRC clinched their third consecutive title Saturday afternoon, defeating the Providence University College Pilots 90-73 on RRC’s home court at the Notre Dame Campus.
It was going to take a major upset to keep RRC from ending their MCAC season without a championship banner. Providence had the best chance at doing so with some special scorers.
Earlier in the season Pilots’ star forward Jordan Lawson scored 52 points in a 20-point loss to the Rebels. Providence guard Joshua Armstrong scored 27 points in the MCAC semi-final against Canadian Mennonite University Thursday.
Both gave it their all Saturday but RRC still prevailed with a double-digit win at the packed gym.
