The Vikings won both of their contests at the South Point Holiday Hoops Classic on Dec. 18 and 19 in Las Vegas, squeaking past previously unbeaten and No.14-rated Drury MO, 72-69, then cruising to a 103-74 decision over Central Oklahoma.
Senior guard John Allen received GNAC Player of the Week and SPHHC Most Valuable Player accolades as he scored 47 points in the two wins, including a season-high 32 in the victory over Central Oklahoma.
Allen is averaging a team-high 18.9 points per game, third among GNAC leaders, and has a team-best 33 assists (3.7 avg.). He was picked as the preseason GNAC Player of the Year and was a Division II Bulletin Super 16 selection.
Senior forward Paul Jones is averaging 14.6 points and 6.6 rebounds. He leads the GNAC in 3-point accuracy at 73.3 percent (11-of-15) and is third in field-goal shooting at 62.0 percent (49-of-79).
Senior center Chris Mitchell is averaging 10.6 points and 6.9 rebounds. He was a SPHHC all-tourney pick with 24 points and 15 rebounds in the two games.
A top player off the bench has been senior guard Rico Wilkins, averaging 10.6 points.
WWU leads the GNAC in scoring margin, outpointing its opponents, 92.2 to 68.9, field-goal percentage (51.2), 3-point shooting (42.6), free-throw accuracy (75.3), offensive rebounds (42.1), and blocked shots (4.4).
The Vikings rank among the top six nationally in five team categories. They are No.2 in rebound margin (12.1), No.3 in field-goal percentage, No.4 in both scoring offense and scoring margin and No.6 in 3-point percentage.
Thompson Rivers is 4-9, losing its last five games. Top players for third-season coach Scott Clark (14-41) are second-year 6-7 forward Will Ondrik (16.5 ppg, 6.1 rpg), fifth-year 5-11 guard Kevin Pribilsky (14.5 ppg, 2.7 apg), a transfer from Simon Fraser, and third-year 6-4 guard Brett Rouault (13.0 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 1.7 spg).
Clark previously coached 15 seasons at Simon Fraser (113-96), directing the Clan to 10 straight Canada West playoff appearances.
This is WWU's first meeting with the Wolfpack.
Seattle Pacific, which was the GNAC preseason favorite in the coaches' poll, is 9-1 overall, 4-0 at home and 2-0 in league play. The last meeting between the two teams was at the West Regional championship game in Bellingham, where WWU prevailed 56-50.
The Falcons, who have participated in the last eight NCAA tournaments, the longest current playoff streak in Division II, rank eighth nationally in scoring defense with a 58.2 average.
Leading SPU are two returning first-team all-conference picks - 6-2 junior guard David Downs (13.0 ppg, 5.4 apg) and 6-11 senior center Any Poling (10.1 ppg, 3.8 rpg). Also back is 6-6 senior forward Jobi Wall (14.1 ppg, 4.9 rpg).
A top newcomer for coach Ryan Looney (4th year, 74-25; 9th overall, 169-80) is 6-8 senior forward Patrick Simon (14.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg) from Washington State.
The Falcons have won five straight games after suffering their only loss, 60-55, to San Francisco State.
WWU trails 76-48 in the series, but has won the last three meetings.
SPU outpointed the Vikings, 97-90, as the two teams were 1-2 in the GNAC preseason coaches' poll. The Falcons received eight first-place votes to WWU's two.
MSU Billings is 6-6 overall (Dec. 29 hosts Carroll) and 0-2 in GNAC action. The Yellowjackets, 3-1 at home, do not return a starter from last year's 18-12 team for second-year coach Jamie Stevens (24-18). The top returnee from that squad is 6-2 senior guard David Arnold (10.1 ppg).
Two talented Division I transfers are 6-7 senior forward Jarrell Clayton (15.0 ppg, 6.7 rpg) from Boise State and 6-3 senior guard Omar McDade (12.5 ppg) from Fort Hays State.
WWU holds a 14-3 series advantage, but lost to the Yellowjackets in the 2012 GNAC tournament semifinals, 82-78, at Lacey, after winning both regular-season meetings.
ALLEN 1,000 AND BEYOND: John Allen became the 23rd Viking to reach the 1,000 plateau in career scoring, and just the fifth who did not play four seasons at WWU to accomplish that feat, on Dec. 8 vs. Quest BC. Allen currently ranks 18th at 1,068, and needs 16 points to climb to 17th (1,084, Stan Peterson, 1947-51) and 25 to move into 16th (1,093, Mike Clayton, 1966-70).
STREAKS: The Vikings are working on a 15-game winning streak over the last two seasons. The string is tied for the second longest in school history with the other one being from Nov. 25, 2005 to Jan. 26, 2006 and the school record of 23 being from Feb. 20, 1971 to Feb. 15, 1972 ... That 15-game streak is also just three short of the GNAC record of 18 set by Alaska Anchorage during the 2007-08 season ... WWU also has won 14 straight home games (4-0 this season) with the school standard being 20 (1970-72) ... The Vikings' unbeaten start of 9-0 is tied for second in school history. They were also 9-0 in 1967-68 and 1987-88, and a school record 21-0 in 1971-72.
THREE-DOT NOTES: John Allen and Richard Woodworth were co-MVPs at the WWU Chuck Randall Thanksgiving Classic ... The Vikings received one first-place vote in the NABC Preseason Top 25 while being picked No.6 ... WWU was tabbed No.8 nationally in the Division II Bulletin preseason poll ... The Vikings will host Simon Fraser, the NCAA's first international member, in a nationally televised game on the CBS Sports Network (CBSSports.com) on March 2 (7 p.m.) ... WWU, which is the GNAC's defending regular season champion, was picked second behind Seattle Pacific in the league's preseason coaches poll. WWU tied for the GNAC title in 2002 and 2005, won it outright in 2009 and took the regular-season crown in 2012.
PRE-SEASON HONORS: John Allen was picked as the preseason GNAC Player of the Year and was a Division II Bulletin Super 16 pick. Besides Allen, Paul Jones and Richard Woodworth were named to the GNAC preseason all-conference team.
COACH DOMINGUEZ: Tony Dominguez (9-0) is in his first season as head coach at WWU after being an associate head coach the previous two seasons and an assistant 17 years overall, all at WWU. During that stretch, the Vikings posted a 317-165 (.658) record, made six regional appearances and won five conference championships. WWU took the NCAA II national crown in 2012, winning a school record 31 games, and reached the national semifinals in 2001. As an assistant, Dominguez was responsible for coordinating scheduling, scouting and budgeting. He played a major role in the recruiting classes of past 12 seasons. Those teams had a winning percentage of .711 (246-100).
TOUGH EXHIBITIONS: The Vikings accounted well for themselves in a pair of road exhibition games against NCAA I opponents. They lost 88-78 at Washington on Oct. 24 and fell 105-87 at Duke, currently ranked No.1 in the Associated Press Preseason Poll, on Oct. 27. WWU trailed by just two points, 74-72, against Washington with 4:30 to play, and versus Duke was within 11, 69-58, with 13:58 to go and 14, 99-85, with 2:13 remaining. The 18-point margin was the closest any defending DII national championship team had gotten to Duke since the Blue Devils began inviting those squads for exhibitions six years ago. In the combined second half of the games with Washington and Duke, the Vikings trailed by just four points. John Allen and Chris Mitchell each scored a team-high 17 points against Washington and Paul Jones added 15. Jones led the Vikings versus Duke with 20 points, 14 in the second half. Allen had 17, Woodworth 13 and Rico Wilkins added 12 off the bench.
NATIONAL CHAMPS! WWU won the 2012 national championship, defeating Montevallo, Ala., 72-65, on March 24 in a nationally televised game at Northern Heights, Kentucky. The Vikings finished 31-5, the win total being the most in school history. They won their final six games following a loss to Montana State Billings in the GNAC Tournament semifinal after winning the league's regular-season crown. It was the first NCAA basketball title at any level for a school from the state of Washington since Puget Sound won the NCAA II championship in 1976.

The schools entered the contest as two of 13 teams remaining unbeaten in NCAA Division II. The defending national champion Vikings, ranked No.5, remained unbeaten at 8-0 and have won 14 straight games over the last two seasons, which ties the fourth-longest winning streak in school history. Drury, rated No.14, fell to 7-1. Forward Ian Carter led the Panthers with game-highs of 20 points and 11 rebounds. Drury tied the game at 67-67 on a fast break dunk by Cameron Adams with 2:17 to play, but Adams was assessed a technical foul for hanging on the rim, and Allen put WWU in front to stay with two free throws. A Woodworth free throw extended the margin to three, but two Carter free throws with 1:07 remaining narrowed the gap to one, 70-69. A shot clock violation gave the ball back to Drury, which ran a pick-and-roll that got Brandon Lockhart into the lane on a drive. Lockhart's layup missed, and Mitchell grabbed the rebound and was fouled, then hit two free throws. Drury had a pair of 3-point attempts in the final 10 seconds, but both were off line. Allen finished with 15 points for the Vikings and moved into 11th place in WWU career scoring. Woodworth added 12 points, all in the second half. Lockhart had 15 points for the Panthers, who had a 47-39 advantage in rebounds, and Alex Hall added 12. Despite hitting just two of their first 19 shots from the field and shooting a season-low 26.5 percent (9-of-34) in the first half, the Vikings trailed by just two 38-36, at halftime. Drury still led, 48-44, nearly five minutes into the second half, but WWU rallied with eight straight points, taking the lead on a Jones free throw and extending the margin to four, 52-48, on a 3-pointer by Woodworth with 12:40 to play. The 8-0 start is matches the fourth best in school history.

The No.5-ranked Vikings improved to 9-0 and the win was their 15th straight over the last two seasons. Those two strings are both the second-longest in school history. UCO, which fell to 3-7, was led by the 20 points and seven rebounds of forward Josh Gibbs. The Vikings led by just four, 34-30, with six minutes left in the first half, but ran off 14 straight points, including a trio of 3-pointers by Wilkins, to open up a 48-30 lead with 3:06 remaining. WWU, which hit nine of its last 13 3-point attempts in the period, held a 55-37 lead at halftime. The margin was never less than 17 in the second half, with the biggest gap being 34, at 95-61, with 5:49 remaining. Allen, who played just 25 minutes, was 9-of-13 from the field, including 6-of-9 on 3-pointers, and 8-of-9 on free throws. He had 20 points, going 7-of-9 from the field, in the first half, when WWU shot 56.7 percent (17-of-30) from the field, including 10-of-17 (58.8 percent) on 3-pointers.
