FLIMS, Switzerland -- Canadas Kelsey Rocque defeated South Koreas Kyeong-Ae Kim 6-4 to win the womens title at the world junior curling championships on Wednesday. Rocque and her Edmonton rink stole two points in the eighth end and hit out for the win after South Korea scored a single in the ninth. "Honestly, this is unexplainable," Rocque said. "We came into this tournament really wanting it, and its awesome to see all our hard work pay off." In mens play, Canadas Braden Calvert settled for a fourth-place finish after dropping a 7-5 decision to Norways Eirik Mjoeen in the bronze-medal game. Rocque and third Keely Brown, second Taylor McDonald, lead Claire Tully and alternate Alison Kotylak are the first Canadian team to win the world junior womens title since Saskatchewans Marliese Miller (now Kasner) won the championship in 2003. "Its almost less pressure knowing Canada hasnt won the gold (in 11 years)," Rocque said. "Its awesome to get it again." The Canadian rink had won six games in a row entering the final. Rocque had last-rock advantage because of her win over Kim in the Page 1-2 playoff game. Kim led 3-2 after six ends but Canada regained the lead with a double in the seventh. Rocque added another deuce in the eighth end when Kims takeout attempt rolled too far. "They are a very strong team," Rocque said of the silver medallists, the first South Korean team to qualify for this event. "She made a clutch shot in the ninth end and we knew it would be right down to the bitter end with them. It was a well-played game." "Im so proud of the girls, they just played great all week and we just had an awesome week," she added. "I couldnt ask for anything more."

"Were disappointed with our play today and know we can play better," said Calvert. "Were hungry for more. We just got out of the starting gate a little slow today and picked it up late, but not soon enough."

It certainly isnt a coincidence that Dwight Howard has scored at least 20 points in each game of the winning streak. Howard had 34 points and 14 rebounds to help the Rockets beat the Phoenix Suns 122-108 on Wednesday night. "Ive just been being patient and letting my teammates find me in the right spot and not rushing my shots," Howard said. The centre has been spending extra time after practice this season working on post moves with former Rockets assistant coach and general manager Carroll Dawson. "We talk about after I got my man beat, just slow down and make the shot," Howard said. "So Ive just been trying to do that." Howard also had three steals and two blocks, and James Harden added 23 points for Houston. It was the fifth game this season where Howard had at least 30 points and 10 rebounds, which is the most by a Rocket in a season since Yao Ming had six in 2007-08. Houston coach Kevin McHale is encouraged that his guards have started to get a better feel for how to get the ball inside to Howard. "I thought we missed him a couple of times, but we found him better," McHale said. "We just have to keep working on passing the ball to him, being better post feeders." The Suns cut it to four points with about 6 minutes left before Houston went on a 10-3 run to make it 113-102. The Rockets capped that run when Harden knocked down a 3-pointer, Howard blocked Goran Dragics shot, and Chandler Parsons added a layup. Phoenix missed four shots, had a turnover and a shot-clock violation in that span. Dragic had 23 points and eight assists for the Suns, who have dropped two in a row after winning five straight. They lost at home to Chicago on Tuesday night. "We didnt stop anybody," Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek said. "We didnt stop anybody last night, either. Our defence has not been very good." Chandler Parsons and Terrrence Jones added 19 points each for Houston, which was playing the second of just three home games this month.dddddddddddd.
