Guard Korissa Williams was named the tournament’s most valuable player. She told a national audience watching on the Score network that it is “an honour” to play on the squad, which went undefeated through the season. Williams scored 46 points through three games at the tournament.

The CIS named Miah-Marie Langlois its defensive player of the year at its pre-tournament banquet Thursday. The fourth-year guard won the same award last year.
Coach Chantal Vallée called Langlois a force at both ends of the court: “She always responds with eagerness to get the job done, from stopping the opponent’s best player to running the team at the point.”
Lancer Korissa Williams was named MVP of the CIS women’s basketball championship tournament.
