Road to Final 8: Terrell Evans Tip in at the buzzer sends Vikes to 2012 Canada West Final Four

Fourth-Year Forward Terrell Evans (Las Vegas, NV) tipped in a Ryan Mackinnon missed jumper at the buzzer to lift the Victoria Vikes 90-88 over the Calgary Dinos.

The hard-fought victory gives the Vikes a 2-1 series win and berth in the upcoming 2012 Canada West Final Four.

Fifth-year senior Ryan Mackinnon had a game-high 33 points and 8 rebounds. Michael Acheampong broke out of his playoff slump by adding 18 huge points. Mike Berg added 14 points and Evans capped off the double-digit scorers with 12 points and none bigger than his final two points.

Tyler Fidler was outstanding in his last CIS Basketball game with 30 points including a gorgeous move to tie the game at 88-88 with 15 seconds left.
