Donivine Stewart - ...
Bradley guard (2011-12) Donivine Stewart is being honored at tonight's Limestone Homecoming football game vs. Morton...
and being inducted into the Limestone Hall of Fame


Jim Les is starting his 6th year at UC-Davis, and is already their ALL TIME Division-I leader in wins, and with a good year this year-he can even move into 4th place all time in UC-Davis coaching wins in all of history even before they were DI
He's already among the top six in all time wins at Bradley as well - with most of those ahead of him (Robby, Mo, Stowell, etc) spent a lot more years accumulating their totals....only one (Versace with 156 wins - 2 more than JL) did it in less years than Jim.

The Italian headline is about how Chris' new team Fortitudo Bologna winning a preseason tournament, the SuperCoppa LNP.
Chris Roberts was the star player in the championship game, along with American teammate Justin Knox.
The headline reads:
The trophy that was won brings to Boniciolli (the team's coach) evidence of how good Knox and especially Roberts are
Justin: The championship gets us started on the right foot
Chris: I always have a physical impact on the match

Here is a different link to a brief story of their 72-70 win over Givova Scafati to win the championship.

Here is a brief highlight video-

Their team starts the regular season on Oct. 2.

Zach gets a mention in his league's Top Performances this past week for a 19 pts/12 rebound game!
Unfortunately the entire rest of his team combined for just 47 pts & 19 rebounds ...so they got beat 83-66

Taylor Brown is heating up...
he just had a monster 31 point game to carry his team to a win
https://twitter.com/3EyeSports/statu...22831623131136
http://www.eurobasket.com/boxScores/...213_158_67.asp


he leads Szezecin in scoring & rebounding & is 2nd in steals & blocks!
Szezecin has won 7 of their last 11 and are getting hot in the stretch run..
they sit currently in a 7th place tie in Poland's top pro league,
but they are only one game out of 4th and four games out of 1st!
Go TB! Go Braves!!


Walt Lemon, Jr.
is averaging 14 ppg, 5 rebs, 4 asst and for Istanbulspoor in the top Turkish pro league


Meanwhile Patrick O'Bryant's new team in Taiwan, Fubon has caught fire..
since POB has joined the team, he's averaging 14 ppg & 13 rebs! (as well as 82% on FTs)
now Fubon is making a push and is just 1 game out of 2nd place & 3 games out of 1st
