Victoria (8-2) 65, Fraser Valley (4-6) 63 Victoria had another come-from-behind victory over UCFV as Mike Tucker from UVic Sports Information Reports... Another comeback needed for Vikes victory VICTORIA - For the second straight night the University of Victoria Vikes needed to overcome a halftime deficit to defeat the Fraser Valley Cascades. Behind 17 points from Mitch Gudgeon, the Vikes downed the Cascades 65-63. Gudgeon scored seven points in the final frame, none bigger than a two-handed dunk with four minutes left to give the Vikes a four-point lead. Gudgeon drove baseline and poster-ized the Cascades defender with a vicious throw-down, and along with two late free-throws, secured the weekend sweep over Fraser Valley. The Vikes trailed 41-38 after the first half of play, and entered the final frame tied after Cascades fifth-year guard Lee Jackson ended the third quarter with a NBA-range three ball. Jackson totaled 11 points before fouling out. The Cascades made eight three-pointers versus one by the Vikes. After Gudgeon gave the Vikes an early lead in the fourth, the Vikes were able to control the clock with the lead in hand. The Vikes managed to extend their possessions, getting several second chance looks with seven offensive 'boards. In one trip down the floor, the Vikes grabbed three offensive rebounds before Tyler Hass made the Cascades pay dearly with a bank shot for a five-point lead with one minute remaining. On Fraser Valley's final possession they missed a three-pointer, but kept the ball in play. Freshman Tristian Smith scored on a drive through the lane, for his 10th point of the night, but left no time remaining on the clock. For the second night in a row Dwayne Harrison held the Fraser Valley high with, scoring 13 points on 4-for-8 shooting. The Vikes shot 41.5 percent. Second-year guard Brandon Dunlop netted 14 points, and helped force two of the Cascades 16 turnovers. Hass finished with 12 points, seven rebounds, six assists, and three steals. Last weekend Hass surpassed 1,000 career points in a Vikes uniform. With the victory, the Vikes move to 8-2 with a stranglehold on second-place in the Canada West. The Vikes will play their final two games prior to the exam break next weekend when they take on the UBC Thunderbirds. The Vikes take on the defending Canada West champs Friday and Saturday November 30-December 1. The first-place T-birds are 8-1 and ranked fourth in the CIS.
