Francis, who leads the league in scoring, collected 12 points and hauled down 14 game-high rebounds. Francis also contributed three assists, two blocked shots and a steal to the win.

The Royals got the better of Kwantlen the following night, winning 81-56 on the strength of a 28-point final quarter.
The win left Douglas in a four-team tie with CBC, Camosun and Capilano, all teams with 10 points. Kwantlen fell to last place with a 4-9 record.
Devan Haynes led the Royals over Kwantlen with a game-high 22 points, including nine-of-13 from the floor, and 23 boards.
