A bandaged up shooting hand did not slow down SFU Clan women’s basketball player Kristina Collins during a match against St. Martin’s University last week.

The former Riverside Rapids point guard wasted little time finding her scoring touch, adding 13 points in an 82-45 victory.

“It’s nice because once you are playing you forget about the injury and just go with it,” said the Port Coquitlam player after the game. “I’ve worked this week on shooting with the hurt hand so I’m glad that practice paid off tonight.”

The Clan managed to capitalize on the Saint’s 27 turnovers, scoring 38 points off SMU’s mistakes.

The win improves the Clan’s record to 7-1 on the season and 1-0 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play.
