The VIU Mariners men’s team are back to back PACWEST champs and are primed to make another run at the title this season looking for a three-peat. CCAA Player of the Year Usama Zaid returns to the Mariners and will be an instant threat.

Head coach Matt Kuzminski believes Zaid is even better than last year and has filled his roster with tremendous talent around him. He previews his team with Ryan Watters as his club is preparing to open the new season on Thursday night at home against the Camosun Chargers.
