Williams leads Canada to FISU Silver Medal

Former Lancer and alumna Korissa Williams has helped The Canadian women's basketball team claim the Universiade silver medal after falling 82-63 to the United States in the gold medal final, at the 28th Summer Universiade on July 13.

Canada's silver medal is the program's best result at the games. Prior to this, the team’s highest finish was a bronze medal on two occasions in 1979 (Mexico City) and 1991 (Sheffield, England).

The game started close, but the tables turned in favour of the USA in the second quarter, as Canada struggled with turnovers and rebounds.
Williams logged 32 minutes in the contest and finished with 8 points, 3 rebounds and two assists.

"I am tremendously proud of our girls and their performance at these games," said head coach Fabian McKenzie. "Our first silver medal at the Universiade is a huge step for our program."
