Where Are They Now?
Want to know where some ex-Gannon players have gone? Me, too. Here's the latest, courtesy of a Friend of Gannon Hoops:
- George Johnson is at Division II power Augusta State. They have an exhibition game Thursday at the University of Georgia. Please -- no jokes about him quitting the team after they lose that game.
- Filmore "Mook" Bouldes transferred to GLVC member Missouri S&T. They've had 2 exhibition games so far, but Bouldes has yet to play in either.
- Daren Dexter is at Division III Greensboro College (N.C.). In their 103-60 exhibition game loss to DI Elon, Dexter was the leading scorer with 14 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals in 30 minutes of action.
- Jerell Sanders is in the GLIAC now, suiting up for Ferris State. Sanders started in the Bulldogs' 69-39 exhibition game victory over Aquinas, but he did not score in 20 minutes of play. I'm sure he and combustible assistant coach Ed Douma will get along famously. UPDATE #3: Sanders had 9 points and 10 rebounds off the bench in FSU's overtime loss at Indiana. No, not Indiana (Pa.) -- at freaking Indiana University in Bloomington. Sanders hit what would have been a game-winning shot as time expired in regulation, but it was ruled just after the horn.
UPDATE #1 (thanks to Coach Corey)
- Anthony Simmons has landed at NAIA Division I Xavier (La.). In first game against Webber International, Simmons started and was 6-for-8 from the field for 12 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 turnover in 22 minutes playing time. I think the biggest shock here is that there's a Webber International University and they have an athletic program.
UPDATE #2 (thanks to an anonymous emailer)
Larry Swann has landed at NAIA Division II Dakota Wesleyan University (S.D.) . Swann has started and hit double figures in each contest for the 4-0 Tigers. He hasn't exactly found his shooting stroke yet, hitting on only 12-of-36 field goals attempts including just 3-for-12 from three-point range. The coolest thing of all is that DWU's home arena is the Corn Palace.
If you know anything about Isaac Reid's basketball situation, please let me know.
