The VIU Mariners women’s basketball team sits at the top of the PACWEST standings at the Christmas / exam break with an 8-0 record. They are a veteran laced team that has been dominating the opposition winning all but one game so far by double-digitals.

The motor of the Mariners is their point guard Amber Lease in her final campaign. She is tied for the team lead averaging 12.3 points a game and leads the Conference with an average of six assists a contest.

She goes under the PACWEST Spotlight with Ryan Watters to talk about the season, hosting the CCAA Nationals and admits she almost didn’t return for this year. We also find out about a Lease family Christmas tradition.
