Defeat Pronghorns in final minutes Vikings learn lesson quickly The University of Victoria Vikings learned a valuable lesson from the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns Fri- day night and it paid off in the form of a victory before the weekend was over. The Pronghorns never gave up in the first encounter of the Canada West University Men's Basketball League weekend series Friday night and earned themselves a slim 7045 win over the Vikings in the dying minutes.

The weekend split leaves the locals in fifth place in the six-team conference with four wins and eight losses for eight points which is two points less than the fourth place Univer- sity of Calgary Dinosaurs and six better than the cellar- dwelling University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

Meanwhile in Saturday's contest, the Pronghorns came out like barn-busters in the opening half and applied enough pressure to carry a comfortable eight-point lead into the second half. The Pronghorns eventually realized that they were in deep trouble when the Vikings were finally able to a narrow 62-60 lead with remaining on the clock.

The Pronghorns had one chance to win the game, but Max Zaugg lost his scoring touch at the wrong time. Zaugg, who had hit his first four field-goal attempts in the second half, missed on a jumper from the top of the key with 11 seconds remaining and spoiled the Pronghorns' chances of sending the game into overtime. Zaugg and Tom Raffeiner hooped 10 points apiece for the locals while Phil Letham led the attack with 14. Holmes paced the Vikings scorers with 18 points follow- ed by Jim Hunter's 14-point outing and Jim Duddridge's 12.
