VIDEO: Vikes headed to final four on buzzer-beater

UVic Vikes going to final four with last second win over Calgary Dinos

The UVic Vikes needed a buzzer-beating rebound to defeat the Calgary Dinos in men’s playoff basketball action, Sunday afternoon in Victoria.

Terrell Evans grabbed the rebound from Ryan MacKinnon’s shot and threw it up and in to make it 90-88 with no time left, as the Vikes sparked jubilation from the 1,340 fans at Ken and Kathy Shields Court.

With the win Vikes will face the Fraser Valley Cascades in the Canada West semifinal, Friday March 2 at the University of Saskatchewan.

MacKinnon led the Vikes with 33 points, three assists and eight rebounds to help the Vikes capture the best-of-three Canada West quarterfinal series.

“Once I knew Terrell’s (shot) was good, I was ecstatic,” MacKinnon said. “I could not control my emotions… I kind of went and tackled Terrell to the ground and threw a couple of punches at him. It’s an unbelievable feeling.”

The Vikes bounced back from losing 73-68 in Game 1 on Friday, by winning 68-61 over Calgary on Saturday.

Fans can view the live feed of the Vikes and Cascades, 4:15 p.m. PST on Canada West TV. Saskatchewan Huskies will host the Alberta Golden Bears in the other semifinal, later that night.
