Tweedsmuir grad, Douglas Royals star joins Abbotsford-based team for 2021-22

The University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball program has added Surrey native and Douglas College transfer Dylan Kinley to its backcourt for the upcoming season.

Kinley, a 6’3” guard, spent the last two seasons with the Douglas College Royals and helped lead the team to strong results.

In 2018-19, he earned a spot on the Pacwest conference all-rookie team, and was named a conference tournament all-star after helping the Royals to the silver medal.

As a sophomore in 2019-20, Kinley racked up 14.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game alongside sparkling shooting splits (51.7 per cent from the field, 49.4 from three-point range, 73.2 from the free throw line), picking up Pacwest second team all-star honours. He was instrumental as the Royals won the Pacwest title and earned the No. 1 spot in the CCAA national rankings before COVID-19 prematurely ended their season prior to the national championship.

He was also a star in high school with the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers, winning the team’s most valuable player award in his senior year.

“Dylan brings a multifaceted skillset to our basketball program,” stated Cascades head coach Joe Enevoldson, who is very familiar with Kinley, having coached him at Douglas. “He’s a very good rebounder for a guard, and he shot an incredible percentage at Douglas. He’s the ultimate gym rat, he’s a tremendous competitor, and his basketball IQ is incredibly high. He can play a multitude of positions on the floor, and I think we’re getting a guy who knows how to win games.”
