MBB: Vikes spoil no. 7 Trojans' undefeated season SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The University of Victoria Vikes wrapped up their two-game set south of the border with a 74-72 victory over the Trevecca Nazarene Trojans. It was the first loss of the season for the NAIA's no. 7-ranked Trojans. Using a career high 18 points from third year forward Mike Hull, the Vikes overcame a nine-point, 44-35 halftime deficit to complete the sweep in Scottsdale. Friday the Vikes defeated Vanguard Lions, giving them three wins over U.S. schools on the season. Trevecca Nazarene entered the game undefeated at 7-0, and were ranked no. 7 in the NAIA D-1 polls. The Trojans are four-time NAIA National champions, with their last title coming in 2006. Fourth-year forward Mitch Gudgeon matched Hull's high of 18, while Tyler Hass contributed 12 points and five assists. Second year guard Brandon Dunlop added eight points and eight assists. The Vikes resume conference play January 4-5 when they travel to Langley, B.C. to face the Trinity Western Spartans.

Trevecca has appeared in the national tournament four times, not won it.
