Spartans Drop Two in Victoria
TWU falls 84-71 Saturday night.

VICTORIA, British Columbia – The Trinity Western University men’s basketball team is having a tough start to the 2005 Canada West season. The Spartans are hanging tough with each opponent, but they have yet to record a win as they fell 84-71 to Victoria Saturday night. The second loss of the weekend drops TWU’s record to 0-3 in conference play.

It took just over two minutes for the first basket and rookie Jacob Doerksen (Abbotsford, B.C.) did it big, hitting a three from the corner.

After struggling last evening, the UVic offense was much crisper in the early going. Quick transition and rotation opened up Chris Trumpy (5th year, Victoria) for the second score, another three and the Vikes were up 6-2.

With the score at 18-12 and 8:23 to play, the Vikes went out on a 10-0 run over the next three minutes, to take their biggest lead of the half at 16 points.

Trinity Western picked up the pace down the stretch. Trevor Nerdahl (2nd year Caronport, Sask.) hit for two with just over three minutes remaining to pull the Spartans within six, 31-25.

With the Vikes back up by nine with 20 seconds remaining, Trinity Western team captain Brian Banman (3rd year, Kelowna) hit a three to cut the lead back to six.

Victoria would finish the scoring with Steve Moore (4th year, Victoria) hitting a jumper at the horn, giving them first half lead of 41-33.

The second was an end-to-end affair with teams exchanging hoops for most of the half. This enabled the Vikes to maintain their double-digit lead throughout most of the second frame.

Trinity Western was back within seven, midway through the half and could have cut that to five after a beautiful fast break but the hard rim rejected the Spartan dunk attempt.

It was bend but not break for the Vikes down the stretch but the closest Trinity Western could get was within six as Victoria held on for an 84-71 win.

The Spartans will continue their three week road trip next weekend when they travel to Regina, SK for a pair of games against the Cougars.
