Vashil Fernandez Granted Another Year

Valparaiso starting center Vashil Fernandez was granted another year of eligibility by the NCAA further bolstering a team that appears to be better than last year’s NCAA Tournament team.


Fernandez, who stands 6’10, averaged 6.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.9 blocked shots per contest en route to being named Horizon League Defensive Player of the Year honors.


Valpo won an appeal to restore the freshman year that Fernandez lost due to being delayed in his enrollment coming in from Jamaica.


“I am excited to be back, and I am excited to see all the good things that God has in store for me, my family and the Valpo basketball program over the next year,” Fernandez said in a release from the school.
