kadeem willisKadeem Willis from the UFV men’s basketball team will walk away from his last season with a Canada West bronze medal.

He’s one of two graduating players, along with Jasper Moedt.

Willis  says he wishes the team could have made the CIS final 8, but  he’s proud of what the team accomplished and says he loved playing in front of the UFV fans.

“Last year we didn’t have much of a crowd but this year it was pretty sick. That’s one thing I’m going to miss is the atmosphere of walking in that gym and the crowd, and everyone being there for the team and just cheering us on.”

Willis, who is originally from Ontario, transferred to UFV from Lakeland College in Lloydminster a couple of years ago after talking to a close friend at the school.

He says his personal highlight was an October game in which he went a perfect 17 for 17, scoring 41 points.
