The NVSS Viqueens Senior basketball team lost to College Heights on Friday, January 3, 56-57.

The Viqueens managed to stay ahead of College Heights for the first quarter but throughout the rest of the game the score would oscillate from one to the other with neither team getting a great lead on the other.

The teams remained within five points of each other for the entire time with the score at 32-28 at the end of the first half for College Heights.

College Heights managed to keep the lead up until the very last moments of the game when NVSS almost came back. The score was 56-57 for the last 60 seconds and when NVSS got possession of the ball with only 10 seconds left the coaches called a timeout to decide their move.

Everyone in the audience was discussing the strategy the teams would choose during that last tense timeout but NVSS failed to get the points needed to take the game.

Even though the Prince George team only had three substitute players whereas NVSS was working with six subs, the teams were evenly matched. The next game between these two should be very exciting.
