St. Michaels 75-60

Our Vikings picked up win number 16 on the season last night with a 75-60 victory over the St. Michaels Crusaders.  Dynamite Davey Buster hit for a game high 39 points as he continues to rewrite the AISD record books.  The Buffalo Bandit Martez Barron, Tajik Majik Bartholomew, and Marine Mike Coleman all contributed 8 point games.  Big men Colby Francis (5) and De'jon Swist (4) helped control the paint for the Viks, and Agent Q3 Quinte Gibson, once again brought the fans to their feet, with his deadly from distance shooting adding another made 3-pointer to his growing resume.  Next week the Viks travel to Reagan Tuesday, then host the LBJ Jaguars in a Friday night first place showdown.  Come one, come all.


McCallum 53-36

Our Vikings picked up the road win at McCallum last night with a 53-36 victory over the Knights.  Dynamite Davion Buster (28) and Tajik Majik Bartholmew (16) led the way scoring for the Vikings once again.  Sammy Roach (4), Michael Coleman (3 points, 6 rebounds), Martez Barron (7 rebounds, 5 assists), and Colby Francis (2 points, 9 rebounds) provided the punch to put the Viks over the top.  The Viking Tough Belt is handed to Michael Coleman for his outstanding toughness and effort.  Fan of the Game goes to Viking lead singer Ryan Hopkins (feel free to insert suck up comment) for his loud and proud Viking fandom in the hostile McCallum gym. 


Crockett 81-62

Friday night our Vikings picked up a third straight district victory with 81-62 win over Crockett.  Dynamite Davion Buster (28) and Tajik Magic Bartholomew (23) both finished with 20 point scoring game.  The Buffalo Bandit Martez Baron also had double digits with 11.  Colby Francis (7), De'jon Swist (6), Sammy Roach (2), and Mike Coleman (2) added to the scoreboard for the Viks.  The night was closed out with another crowd frenzy inducing basket from Agent Q3 Quinte Gibson.


Travis 78-61

Last night our Vikings picked up win number 13 on the season and started district play 2-0 with a 78-61 win over Travis.  Little Dynamite Davion Buster registered a team high 35 points, 7 assists and 4 steals to lead the way.  Tajik Magic Bartholomew poured in 20 points.  Colby Francis (11 points, 8 rebounds) and De'jon Swist (7 points, 9 rebounds) helped to control the backboards and played big in the victory.  The Buffalo Bandit Martez Barron (3) and Sammy Roach (2) rounded out the scoring.  Friday night is another big district match up for the Viks when the Crockett Cougars come up north to the Viking Ship.  Varsity game tips at 8:00.  Come out and show your support.


Austin 70-63

Our Vikings opened district play last night with a nail-biter.  Down one point going into the fourth quarter, several Viks stepped up to make clutch shots in a 70-63 win over Austin High.  The Buffalo Bandit Martez Barron strolled into the night time wearing the coveted Viking Tough Player of the Game Belt as his delivered 3 3-pointers with a 9 point, 7 assist night.  Grammar wiz Colby Francis had a monster night on the glass with 17 rebounds, along with 8 points, and a perfect 4-for-4 from the free throw line.  Little Dynamite Davion Buster (27 points, 5 assists), Tajik Majik Bartholomew (13 points, 4) and Marine Mike Coleman (13 points) all registered double digit scoring nights and kept the Viking Ship a-rockin'.  Fan of the Game goes to Viking Legend Khalil Lewis.  Although he will never be close to as cool as his dad, he was still able to bring his understated charisma and fashion game to the contest.
