The KW Titans lost 105-104 to the Saint John Riptide Thursday night.
It was a close game of back and forth between the two, with the teams more or less even within the box.
However, it was the Riptide's three-point success that gave them the edge over the Titans.
Asthon Smith lead the Titans with 24 points and 13 assists.
Joel Friesen did well off the bench with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
The Titans go back to the court on Tuesday when they take on the Cape Breton Highlanders in an 11:00 am start at the Aud.
