Basketball wins 3 of 4 at home

November 19th, 2017

The VIU Mariner basketball teams hosted the Douglas Royals on Friday night in front of a packed gym. A 69-52 win for our women's team was a good start to the evening. Emma Platner had the hot hand scoring 19pts. A celebration of the Men's Soccer National Championship win took place during the intermission between the women's and men's games. The team paraded out waving the banner and hoisting the trophy high, to the roar of the fans.
A 89-77 win for the Men's basketball team saw Usama Zaid post 25pts and Jerod Dorby contributed 21pts. 
VIU men are now undefeated at 4-0!!
Saturday afternoon our women's team were out scored by Capilano 15-8 in the second quarter, which led to a 71-63 loss. Victoria Brown had a strong game posting 14pts. In men's action, VIU led Capilano Blues from start to finish. A final score of 86-73 saw Usama Zaid leading the Mariners again in scoring with 30pts.

Thanks to the VIU Dance team for performing throughout the games!!
