VIU Mariners host U.S. team

The Vancouver Island University men’s basketball team has three exhibitions this month, starting with a home contest Saturday (Dec. 3).

The Vancouver Island University Mariners have finished up their PacWest fall schedule, but will try to continue to keep sharp.

The men’s basketball team has three exhibitions this month, starting with a home contest Saturday (Dec. 3) against Another Level, a Seattle men’s team.

“They should be solid. They’ll be older guys with some experience and it should be a fairly good game for us,” said Matt Kuzminski, VIU coach.

He said his team has been working on some pressing in practice and will try it out in a game situation, and VIU will also have a chance to get different guys into the lineup including guard Trevor Davidson, who has rejoined his hometown team.

Saturday’s game starts at 2 p.m. and admission is free.

Later this month, the VIU men’s hoops teams will travel for a pair of exhibitions in Portland Dec. 16-17.
