VIU Mariners add swingman

The Vancouver Island University Mariners continue to add talent as they create competition from within.

VIU’s men’s basketball team announced last week the signing of Morgan Proctor, a 6-foot-3 swingman from Courtenay’s Isfeld Ice.

“He’s an athletic player I think who has a lot of upside and might be able to help us out right away,” said Matt Kuzminski, VIU coach.

The Ice won the Vancouver Island championship this past season and Proctor hit some big shots along the way.

“He gets points from his athleticism,” Kuzminski said. “He’s a good cutter, he’s a smart player and he’s good at sprinting the floor and getting transition-type layups.”

COURT SHORTS … VIU’s athletics department is now accepting registrations for its summer sports camps. There will be basketball, volleyball and soccer camps for boys and girls this August. Kuzminski, one of the coaches, said last year’s b-ball camp saw a surge in registration. “It’s good to see that the excitement’s growing around it and I think the kids have had a lot of fun at camp,” he said.
