Spartans Fall Short
Luke Robinson’s last second shot just misses as TWU drops game to Victoria 59-56

VICTORIA, British Columbia –Jon Schmidt's (Abbotsford, BC) 15 points and eight rebounds was not enough for the Trinity Western University men's basketball team as the Spartans fell by a score of 59-56 to the University of Victora Friday night in Victoria, BC.

"Trinity Western played well tonight," said Vikes head coach Craig Beaucamp following the game. "We struggled on offence all night but our defense was good. It was our defense that won us the game."

It took Steve Moore (4th year. Victoria) less than a minute from the opening tip to launch the Vikes into their 2005-2006 season. Moore, with an open look from outside, drained a three to put UVic up 3-0.

The aggressive man-to-man defense limited the Vikes chances in the first but ten minutes in Tyler Hass (2nd year, Victoria) brought the crowd to their feet. Hass slipped outside into the corner where Chris Trumpy (5th year, Victoria) fed him a perfect thread. Hass took one-step and went high to throw down a major jam, to put Victoria in front 16-8.

Michael Brouwer (2nd year, Nanaimo.B.C) was the hot-hand for the Spartans early in the half. By the mid-point his 4-6 shooting and 8 points made up for half of Trinity Western's points.

Third year guard Jon Schmidt (3rd year, Rosedale, B.C.) was also solid in the first, hitting on two-of-three from beyond the arc. It was on one of his two pointers though, with a minute left in the half, that brought his Spartans even for the first time in the game.

UVic would score before the buzzer to move in front by two at the break, 36-34.

It was a quick start in the second for the Vikes as Brandon Ellis (4th year, Courtenay, B.C.) made a big steal and ran the floor, finishing with a lay-in to put the Vikes ahead by eight.

UVic opened up their largest lead at 13, six minutes into the second but Trinity Western continued to creep back in and were within three down the stretch.

With a minute left to play, Hass picked up another steal and charged down the hardwood, capping the play with his second major jam of the night, to put the Vikes up 59-54.

On the ensuing possession, Trinity Western raced up court and dished off to Brower who threw down a big dunk of his own, to pull the Spartans back within three with ten seconds to play.

Trinity Western were forced to foul, putting Trumpy on the line twice. Uncharacteristically Trumpy missed all four and the Spartans grabbed the rebound off his final shot.

With seconds left on the clock, Trinity Western had a chance to hit a three to force overtime. Luke Robinson (3rd year, Ahousat, B.C) threw up a shot at the buzzer. the ball hit the glass, bounced off the rim and fell away, giving UVic a season opening 59-56 victory.

Trinity Western and UVic will return to action again on Saturday night for the second game of their weekend series. Tipoff at McKinnon Gymnasium is 8 :00PM.
