VIU Mariners hosting 2015 Women's Basketball CCAA Nationals

January 12th, 2014

The VIU Mariners will host the 2015 CCAA Women's Basketball National Championship in Nanaimo, B.C.
 
As hosts, the VIU Mariners are guaranteed a spot alongside seven other top teams. They're currently undefeated in B.C.'s PACWEST conference, and fourth in the CCAA national rankings.
 
Games will take place March 19-21 in the Vancouver Island University Mariners' home gym, which reached maximum capacity when it hosted the 2012 CCAA Women's Volleyball National Championships. Since then, the hard court has been refinished and new bleachers from the Richmond Olympic Oval have doubled the gym's seating.
 
"Nanaimo is traditionally a strong supporter of basketball so attendance is expected to be excellent," says tournament chair Bruce Hunter. "We'll also be webcasting all matches."   
 
The 2014 CCAA Women's Basketball National Championship will take place March 12-15 at Champlain College St. Lambert in St. Lambert, Que.
