· 10:51pm January 22nd, 2013
The Vinton-Shellsburg basketball team struggled early against Marion; the Vikings went nearly four minutes before scoring and ended the first quarter down, 10-9, to the Indians.
The Vikings struggled for a couple minutes in the second quarter until two consecutive 3-point shots by Max Griffith turned a three-point deficit to a 19-16 lead on their home court. The Vikings never trailed again, and defeated Marion, 70-48.
Grant Sagan hit 12 of his 17 shots and led the Vikings with 32 points and 12 rebounds. Nolan Sagan scored 13 and Griffith added 10. The Vikings host Center Point-Urbana on Friday, during their Pink Night event to raise funds for fighting breast cancer. The Stormin Pointers have given the undefeated, top-ranked Vikings the toughest contest so far this season; the Vikings defeated them by two points in Center Point in December.
