Victor Mijas, DVC's dead-eye outside shooter, bombed in seven 3-pointers and scored a season-high 26 points, and Rodney Pope added 19 points as the Vikings thumped visiting Cosumnes River 82-68 on January 20 in the Big 8.
A big Golden State Warriors fan and a 6 foot 4 graduate of Estrella Sirius in Brazil, Mijas helped the Vikings (15-6, 3-3) stay just two games behind conference, leading Santa Rosa. Pope, a former Freedom High star, has been solid all season running the offense.
Sophomore forward Kyla Miller, a College Park graduate, had a career game, with 20 rebounds and 12 points in the Diablo Valley womens basketball team’s 60-58 win over upset-minded Sacramento City on January 17 in the Big 8. The Vikings, who played without floor general Safiyyah Yasin, rallied from an 8-point deficit, with a 20-10 fourth-quarter run.
On Friday, January 13, the Vikings lost a tough contest to Northern California No. 1 Sierra 78-75, playing without Yasin in the second half after she scored 18 points in the first half.
