Tough loss for the WIT Vikings Men's Basketball Team to DCU but a semi-final spot secured and an opportunity to redeem themselves in Dublin this week

Travelling to Dublin was always going to be a tough task for our men’s WIT Vikings basketball team in Dublin against DCU, it was not made any easier travelling with only six players. A poor start saw them 14 points down before they managed to get on the scoreboard, however the guys showed good fight and had recovered well to go into the half one point ahead 45 to 44.

The third quarter was a battle with both teams not giving an inch. Unfortunately for the Vikings they ran out of steam in the fourth quarter and DCU managed to pull ahead. Vikings mounted a small comeback but unfortunately it was too little too late and DCU came away with the win 94 to 79.

Chance for redemption

However WIT Vikings had already qualified for the league semi-finals and although they dropped two games in the league play, they will be fired up to redeem themselves in this competition as they play TU Dublin CC this Thursday, 5 March in Dublin. Best of luck to the team and coaches.
