The ACAC website said, “In what was an outstanding effort by the MHC Rattlers, Kieron Burgess led the way in a 108-61 victory over the visiting Ambrose University Lions. Kieron finished with an impressive 41 points and a staggering 31 rebounds. For his efforts, Kieron set 2 ACAC records.

“His 31 total rebounds in a game broke the previous mark of 30 and his 24 defensive rebounds bested the old mark of 19. It is not often that records fall and to see 2 set in the same game highlights just how impressive Kieron’s performance was. Congratulations Kieron.”

“I just went out and played hard,” Mr Burgess told Canada’s Chat News. “At the end of the game, they said I had the record. It was a great feeling, to be honest.”
