teams played where the Vikings were victorious.
Even with another good performance from senior leader Demonte
Flannigan with 16 points and 9 rebounds going 8-14 from the field, but

enough to seal a victory for Oakland by a final score of 53-51. Flannigan
also had 3 steals.

moved to 18-7 overall 8-4 in league play.
