Retriever Alumni Update – January 14, 2010 – Nine Former Dawgs in Action

Hope everyone had a great holiday season and a happy New Year, the Alumni Update is back after a month hiatus with lot of former Retrievers performing well for their respective teams.

Professional Basketball

In Denmark, former Retriever Darryl Proctor scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Bakken Bears’ 94-91 loss to the Svendborg Rabbits last night. Proctor is averaging 18.1 points per game, 6.4 rebounds per game and 2.4 steals per game in 16 contests. The Bears are 14-4, second in the highest league in Denmark.

Andrew Feeley was signed by Olympique Antibes of the highest French league on January 7th and scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Antibes’ 100-82 win over Stadium Clermontois. He finished averaging 16.0 points and 8.5 rebounds per game in 11 appearances for Elektra Esotech of the Slovenian Premier League.

Over in Japan, Mike Housman and Toyota Tsusho lead the league with an 11-0 record during the month break over the holidays. Housman leads the league in rebounds with 13 a game, and is fourth in points with 16.9 per game.

Back in the states, former star point guard Jay Greene made his professional debut for the Vermont Frost Heaves in the Premier Basketball League and scored 22 points with four three-pointers. Unfortunately, talking with UMBC coaches, Jay has suffered an injury that will cut short his debut season. When we have more confirmation, we’ll let you know.

Professional Soccer

Two former Dawgs are playing in the MISL for the Baltimore Blast, Guiliano Celenza and Billy Nelson. So far this season, the Blast are 5-3 on the year with Celenza scoring 12 points on five two-point goals and two assists and Nelson adding a three-point goal and an assist.

Professional Lacrosse

The opening weekend of the National Lacrosse League was come and gone. Drew Westervelt scored a hat trick in the Philadelphia Wings’ 13-8 loss to the Orlando Titans, while Jon Harasym added two assists in the Buffalo Bandits’ 10-5 loss to the Rochester Knighthawks.

Track and Field

Former track and field star Adam Grossman has been continuing to train compete at UMBC’s meets, just as an unattached runner and not officially affiliated with any school. At the Gulden Relays this past Saturday, Grossman won the 60-meter dash in 6.83, 14 one-hundredths of a second faster than the next finisher.

As always, if you know of any former Retrievers playing in professional or semi-professional leagues around the world, please email tfenster@umbc.edu and we’ll start tracking them. Thanks for reading.
