Victoria 78, Saskatchewan 67

The Vikes had a much better overall defensive team effort and coach Craig Beaucamp shook up the starting lineup, bringing usual starter 6'4" Ryan MacKinnon off the bench and MacKinnon answered the bell with a team-leading 16-point performance, including 7-for-7 from the stripe.  Victoria got 34 points from their bench in the win.

Making the most of their first starts of the season, Pierce Anderson and Jeff Spoor chipped in 12 and 10 points, respectively. Zac Andrus contributed eight points, and seeing his first serious stretch of court time, Reece Pribilisky dished out five assists.

Jamelle Barrett led the home team in scoring with 29 points, but was the lone bright spot in the Huskies lineup that struggled offensively, going only 2 for 17 overall from downtown, shooting only 38% in the second half and turning it over 22 times including 9 by Barrett.  The loss spoiled Saskatchewan's Ring Night ceremony honouring last season's CIS national champions.
