Vikings at a Glance: The Vikings picked up their second win of the season on Monday at 'The Bubble' with a 68-60 victory over NCAA Division II University of Minnesota Crookston. Valley City State was down by one point at the break and used their pressure defense and an efficient second half offense to outscore the Golden Eagles by nine points in the final half.
