The past two months we were able to visit with several young men with whom we have known for years. We were able to witness Coach David Lane assisting SVSM complete an undefeated regular season, Doran Grant (Ohio State) and Dante Booker be honored at their alma mater, and finally Alex Abreu in Puerto Rico debut in his pro career.
Top Game Performances this Season:
Romeo Travis (Russia) 26 pts. 14 rebs. 5 stls. 5 asts
Jeremiah Woods (Argentina) 29 pts. 20 rebs. 6 asts 4 blks

Keep up with these players on this year's Major League Rosters:
Stephen Drew - Shortstop. New York Yankees.
T.J. House - Starting pitcher. Cleveland Indians
Justin Maxwell - OF. S.F. Giants.... Game winning pinch hit in game 4.
Steven Wright - Pitcher. Boston... 5 innings, 2 runs vs Yankees.
Tony Sipp - Relief Pitcher. Houston Astros.... 1 inning, 0 hits, and 2 K's.
Ben Zobrist - 2nd base. Oakland A's ....Homers Opening Day, 1st AB
Rich Dauer - 1st base coach. Houston Astros
Though Akron U did not win the MAC championship, their performance this season may have been even more impressive. Overcoming the loss of 4 starters who left Akron prematurely, then three of those that replaced the starters to injury, Akron still managed to make it to the Conference Tournament semi-finals and an upset over rival Kent. Their chemistry, esilience, character, and persistence were memorable.
