The PACWEST women’s basketball schedule will be released on Friday.  

The PACWEST bronze medalists VIU Mariners are once again looking forward to making another run at the championship banner, but they will do it under new guidance.

The Mariners have a new head coach as Tony Bryce rejoins the institution after spending time as the men’s coach at VIU from 2006-2012.   In his six seasons as the bench boss his Mariners were 87-15 in PACWEST play and is a three-time PACWEST Coach of the year.  In 2012 Bryce was named the CCAA National Coach of the Year.

Now back on campus as the women’s head coach Bryce speaks to Ryan Watters about reasons for returning along with who he can see filling the large hole left by All-Canadian Sienna Pollard who graduated following last season.
