IKAW Basketball honours Willy Olaes #6

Jerry Medina, commissioner of IKAW Basketball and the current Loralee Blackjack team paid tribute to their former teammate, #6 Willy Olaes. Prior to the start of the playoff game, fans, players, coaches, officials and volunteers were asked to rise and pay their respects with a moment of silence. To commemorate Willy Olaes’ contribution over the last two decades of Filipino basketball in Winnipeg, the IKAW All-Star is now the first inductee to the league’s memorial Hall of Fame. A banner and trophy have been named in his honour.
