Ejim, Kazami-Keane say they don’t regret being Ravens

It was March 15, 2015, and the Carleton Ravens men’s basketball team have just won its fifth straight Canadian Interuniversity Sports (CIS) (now U SPORTS) championship.

Wood shoots from bench to Player of the Year

Kaza Kajami-Keane takes the ball up the court for the Carleton Ravens. He drives left bringing in two Calgary Dinos defenders, a move that forced the Dinos to leave one of Carleton’s best shooters alone by the three-point line. Kajami-Keane passes the ball to Connor Wood, who knocks down the wide open shot. It’s a scene Carleton fans have witnessed for years—but one that won’t last past March 12.

Before leaving, Wood earned himself the Mike Moser Memorial Trophy, known as Player of the Year, and was also named to the First Team All-Canadian—a goal he said he set for himself when he […]
