BRONXVILE, N.Y. – Moyo Kasim is the final inductee to be showcased on EIVAVolleyball.com as we look back at the careers of all three of the 2016 Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) Hall of Fame members.
Kasim played for George Mason from 1984-1987 and was a player that covered much of the net during his playing days. Moyo was six feet-six inches tall, had a 39-inch vertical leap, and the apex of his spike was a staggering 11 feet-six inches off the ground. From the moment he stepped foot on the court for the Patriots, Kasim had an immediate impact.
During his freshman season, Moyo helped George Mason earn three wins over league rival Penn State as the Patriots were 0-17 all-time prior to 1984. George Mason advanced to the NCAA Semi-Finals after claiming the NCAA East Regional in their own gym. Kasim would be named Third-Team All-America and an All-East selection.
In 1985, Moyo would once again garner All-America and All-East recognition as he had 412 kills on a .324 attacking percentage with 38 service aces while recording 30 solo blocks, 50 block assists, and 267 digs on the defensive end.
1986 saw Kasim lead the Patriots to a 27-5 record and host the EIVA Championship Tournament where they would fall to the Nittany Lions in the championship match. Moyo would be a First Team All-America and All-East selection as he had 333 kills while hitting .319. Defensively he had 19 solo blocks, 90 block assists, and 128 digs.
His final season in 1987 brought national recognition to the program as George Mason began the season 14-2 and rose to No. 7 in the national rankings, the highest ranking in the history of the program. Kasim would cap his collegiate career with 339 kills while hitting .332 as he added 20 solo blocks and 63 block assists.
