The Humber men’s varsity basketball team won its record-sixth national championship on Saturday and Humber News spoke with the team’s power forward, Chad Bewley about the victory.

Ranked the fourth seed in the CCAA national tournament, the Hawks dismantled the tourney’s top two teams en route to their title.

After defeating Vancouver Island University 68-62 in the gold medal game, the Hawks stormed the gym floor of Hamilton Mohawk College in celebration.

Hawks veteran, Chad Bewley, said the feeling of being a national champion hasn’t quite sunk in yet.

“This year has been a long year,” said Bewley, who started at power forward for Humber.

“There’s been a lot of ups and downs. Although we expected ourselves to get here, it’s one thing to expect yourself to do something and then to actually follow through with it. Now that we’re here, there’s so much going on and it’s taking a while for it to sink in.”
