Male Athlete of the Week
Usama Zaid – VIU Mariners
There are talented players in the PACWEST and then there is Zaid. The Los Angeles native took over the PACWEST championship tournament last weekend and simply dominated both the semi-final and gold medal games. He finished the tournament with 57 points, nine-three pointers, 15 rebounds, five assists and six steals and was named MVP. He led the Mariners to their third straight PACWEST gold medal and will now lead his club to the CCAA Nationals in PEI where they will be the third seed and face the #6 seed George Brown Huskies, a wildcard entry from the Ontario Conference.
