CORONAVIRUS SCARE ENDS ALL BASKETBALL SEASONS EARLY
It is hard to write an update about what has been going on in Asia with our EAE program without mentioning how menacing this Coronavirus has been. Hundreds of basketball games have been cancelled along with most of the biggest tournaments. It has been a pretty crazy season here.

Jalen Hill/Davion Roberts
It was only last year at this time when these two squared off against each other in the Far East Finals. Jalen's team from Humphreys (Korea) edged out Davion's team from Kinnick (Japan) for an instant classic. Now they are teaming up and connecting for alley-oops at Shenandoah University. Their college careers are looking good. CLICK PHOTO TO LEARN MORE
