VIU wins exhibition hoops matchup

The VIU Mariners got in some more pre-season action and showed that they're continuing to get their game in order.

Vancouver Island University's men's basketball team played the touring Canadian Mennonite University squad on Saturday at John Barsby Community Secondary School and came away with a 94-49 win.

"We were able to wear them down a little bit with our full court pressure," said Matt Kuzminski, VIU coach. "And some of the things we've been putting in offensively looked pretty good."

Brandon Jones and Clayton Billett were VIU's high scorers with 17 points each. Jason McKee added 16 points and Tyler Olsen scored 14.
