CIVL station manager Aaron Levy loves the UFV Cascades and is stoked to see them head into the CanadaWest Regional Basketball Tournament this week against the UBC Thunderbirds Men’s, Regina Cougar’s Women’s and the CCAA National Championship Tournament for the PacWest champion Women’s Volleyball team.
Cake – “The Distance”
Both basketball teams have a reputation of going for speed, and I wouldn’t want to try to clock Kayla Bruce’s spike manually by assessing the pressure as it “cascades” off of my forehead, but they will be all alone if you don’t show up or tweet your support this weekend.
Notorious B.I.G. feat. Puff Daddy and Mase – “Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems”
Substitute the word money for success, and that basically encapsulates UFV teams’ struggles this year, essentially all stemming from the fact that everyone else in their divisions were gunning for them all year long. Nothing makes things tougher to move ahead through than having more of what other people want.
Kanye West ft. Daft Punk – “Stronger”
All three teams have been at the top of their respective games for a couple years now; finally, in 2012-2013, people and peers are starting to take real notice, but even ramping up their game hasn’t been enough to stop these Cascades yet – that’s how long they’ve been on ya.
Deftones – “Be Quiet and Drive”
Driving is an effective metaphor for nearly any sport, especially when you have BC Women’s Basketball’s Kobe Bryant in Kayli Sartori on your team, or UFV’s thunderous new Toronto recruit Kevon Parchment – we already know what I think of Kayla Bruce’s power. Cascades undress you in the post; now drive.
