Former St. Matthew Tiger Tyson Hinz is on top of the world after leading the Carleton Ravens to their fourth straight CIS national men's basketball championship.

Hinz scored a game high 30 points in Sunday's final against the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees and was named the tournament MVP in what his final game for the Ravens after a career that spanned five years and four championships.

Hinz joined the Ravens after leading the St. Matthew Tigers to the NCSSAA high school championship and the OFSAA AAA provincial title in 2009.

The Ravens failed to win the CIS championship in 2010, but were able to rebound to win the title in 2011 and they've held on to it ever since.

During Hinz's five years at Carleton, the Ravens amassed a incredible win-loss record of 133-6, with three of losses coming in his first year.

"Coaches, the program, I'm going to really miss it," Hinz told Yahoo Sports reporter Neate Sager after Sunday's final. "Especially the team culture. What the whole program has done for me is hard to put into words."

Hinz will retire having won a OFSAA provincial championship in 2010, a CIS Player of the Year award in 2011, four CIS championships in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and the CIS Final 8 tournament MVP in 2011 and 2014.
