MBB: Vikes take another win from U.S. school SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - For the second time this season the University of Victoria Vikes defeated an American opponent. Friday morning the Vikes took a 75-64 win from the NAIA's Vanguard Lions. Fourth-year forward Mitch Gudgeon paced the offense with 20 points, and also added four rebounds, as the Vikes took their second win of the season against international competition. In addition to defeating Vanguard, the Vikes were victorious over UC-Santa Barbara in pre-season action at McKinnon Gym. Second year guard Jeff Cullen added 11 points, freshman guard Julian Spear Chief-Morris contributed nine, and sophomore forward Mike Hull provided eight. As part of their Phoenix road trip, the Vikes also took in the Steve Nash-led Suns' match against the L.A. Clippers. The Vikes attended the morning shoot around before watching the Suns take a 94-88 victory. Vikes assistant coach Ian Hyde-Lay was Nash's high school coach at St. Michaels University School in Victoria. The Vikes' Scottsdale series concludes Saturday morning when they play the Trevecca Nazarene Trojans. Tip-off is slated for 10 a.m.

Northwood U. (NAIA) 91, Windsor 61 Here is a game report from the Northwood web site plus the Box Score The Lancers played without Greg Allin and Isaac Quon and substituted freely. Windsor was in front until the 10 minute mark of the first half but Windsor's fouls started to mount (16 fouls in the first half alone) so Northwood was able to get back in the game at the line. Northwood then took over in the second half. Note that Windsor got a contribution from returning forward Rich Allin, who scored 11 points in 22 minutes but went only 3 for 14 from the foul line according to the box score. Allin sat out the entire first half of the season while adjusting to Teacher's College but will suit up for the Lancers in the second half and if fit should provide another big piece off the bench.
