UVic quick preview from Victoria News

A small piece on the Vikes that is part of a larger story on all UVic sports.

Goodbye Mitch Gudgeon, so long Tyler Hass. The two forwards were born and bred in Victoria and defined the Vikes for the past half-decade.

Also moving on from the team is starting point guard Brandon Dunlop, who's taking a leave for personal reasons. In his departure there are a handful of guards hoping to step in to the point guard role, one of which is hard-working guard Cyril Indome, the team captain. Indome will have to wrestle the spot from second year Zac Andrus, a 5-foot-10 point guard from Vashon Island (Wash) who played for Whatcom Community College last year.

In the same mix of point guards are Jeff Spoor and Jeff Cullen, both returning with an eye on increased floor time. Oak Bay grad Cullen has toiled patiently for a chance at the next step while Spoor has yet to bring his dominating college game to the CIS level.

Andrus comes to the Vikes with fellow recruits Dan Evans, (Capilano College), Adam Connolly (Shawnigan Lake) and Trevor Scheurmann (Winnipeg).

"All four players bring a different dimension to the roster and should complement each other and our existing core," said Craig Beaucamp, beginning his seventh year as head coach.
