2nd-year Sport Media student Jamie Hills will be covering the Arcelormittal Dofasco 2017 U SPORTS Women's Basketball Final 8 Championship with Sportsnet this weekend (March 9-12) in Victoria, BC.
U SPORTS, the national brand of university sports in Canada, broke the news over Twitter in late February: "Excited to announce Ryerson's @_jaimehills will be an analyst on @Sportsnet covering our W championship. Her story [here]".
Following this announcement, Arash Madani, a longtime reporter with Sportsnet who has covered a wide scope of sporting events from Hockey Night In Canada and NBA Finals to the Olympics, also took to Twitter to share his excitement: "Pumped to work with Jaime in Victoria for Canada's version of March Madness. She's one of the country's bright, up-and-coming broadcasters." He later added: "Might be the most up-for-grabs national championship tournament in years. Thrilled to call it with @_jaimehills next weekend on SN360."
Best of luck to Jamie this weekend!!
