Mariners Dominate Bearcats

January 21st, 2018

It was a very entertaining friday night full of great basketball, dance and celebration. Both basketball teams got the job done with the women starting it off with a 80-48 win over CBC. Rookie sensation Madeline Hart led the team with 14pts. The men's team then took the floor and took the lead, never letting go, winning the game 95-73. This was Coach Matt Kuzminski's 100th PACWEST league game wins! These 100 wins came in 113 games (68-3 Over the past 4 seasons)! Having won 3 consecutive  PACWEST Championships, going for a fourth.

Thanks to the  VIU and ADSS dance teams for providing entertainment throughout the games! Great energy.

Saturday afternoon the VIU basketball teams continued to roll with women winning 72-57 and the men 115-56. Emma Platner and Danielle VanBergen both contributed 13pts in the women's win, Bryson Cox had a massive game and probably a career high of 35pts for the men. 

Next up a roadtrip to Douglas this weekend and then back home for the last league home games of the season. The Mariners will face the Quest Kermodes in a doubleheader Feb 2nd and 3rd, with the men's team celebrating their senior night friday.
