He was a CIAU All-Canadian in his two seasons at Lakehead. Zoet went on to become a member of the 1980 Canadian Olympic men’s team, saw short service in the NBA with the Detroit Pistons and then went on to play professionally in the Netherlands, England, Argentina, Mexico and the Philippines. Jim was inducted into the Lakehead University Wall of Fame in 2009.
