UVic-Logo web-(1)November 23, 2012, VICTORIA - The University of Victoria Vikes women's basketball team picked up their third-consecutive Canada West victory defeating the Alberta Pandas 77-70 on Friday in Edmonton.

Fifth-year Vike Debbie Yeboah (Winnipeg, MB) continued her scoring domination with 23 points, six rebounds and three steals. Point guard Cassandra Goodis (Penticton, BC) logged heavy minutes and amassed an impressive 19 points, eight assists, six steals and seven rebounds.

For the Pandas, Sally Hillier was the leading scorer, as the third year impressed with 19 points despite fouling out in the final minute of the game.

The game got off to a close race with the Vikes getting on the board early with jumpers from Yeboah and Chelsea McMullen (Prince George, B.C.) but the home side pushed back to edge the Vikes 19-18 after the opening quarter.

The Vikes opened up a lead in the second quarter, gaining as much as a five-point advantage thanks to some a series of solid shooting that started with a three pointer from Jessica Renfrew (Victoria, BC). The Vikes sealed the half with three unanswered buckets from Goodis to enter the break leading 33-28.

The Pandas found their edge, matching the Vikes in scoring for the third quarter, as fifth-year Katie Arbuthnot and Hillier both got comfortable from outside the arc. The let a seven-point lead slip away to find the game tied at 43 but a series of treys from Shaylyn Crisp (Victoria, B.C.), Jenna Bugiardini (Hamilton, ON) and Renfrew put the Vikes back up 54-48 at the end of the third.

The Vikes shot 80 per cent from the free throw line in the second half and out-scored the Pandas in every quarter to earn the 77-70 victory, improving their Canada West record to 5-2, while Alberta drop to 4-3. Next up, the UVic side will travel to Saskatoon to face the Saskatchewan Huskies at 4:15 p.m. PST. The game will be broadcast live athttp://canadawest.tv
