M's fill home gym with hoops
The VIU Mariners will try for a strong finish to their homestands this weekend (Jan. 18-19).
Vancouver Island University’s men’s and women’s basketball teams are in the midst of a favourable schedule of home games this month, and they’ll try to take advantage.
The Mariners play the Quest Kermodes on Friday and then the Capilano Blues on Saturday at the Vancouver Island University gym. Quest’s men’s team has been bolstered this winter by a new point guard, while Cap’s men are coming off back-to-back wins.
“They’re both going to be improved teams,” said Matt Kuzminski, coach of the M’s men. “Even the first time we played Quest they were tough, and I think Capilano’s gotten better; I think they’ve sort of changed up the systems they run.”
GAME ON … VIU’s women’s b-ball team takes on Quest on Friday at 6 p.m. followed by a men’s game at 8 p.m. On Saturday the women’s game tips off at 1 p.m. and the men go at 3 p.m. … For results of last weekend's basketball games, please click here.
