A tough loss following a triumphant win for the Blue Devils, as they fell at home to the Hurricanes of Holland College, 73-88. A slow start that was never truly remedied saw the King’s Ladies trailing by 18 at the half. Standout performances from HC’s Sophie Atkinson (24 pts.) and Aki Kobayashi (19 pts.) propelled the Hurricanes for most of the game, despite losing the 3rd and 4th quarters to their hosts. Claire Hickman led the way for the Blue Devils with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Elsewhere, there was a visible drop in minutes from senior guard Geana George, playing only 20 and scoring only 6. The Newfoundland pair of George and Hickman will need to be in top form heading into the final games of the season, where the Blue Devils find themselves one game off the 3-way tie for first place.
