Retriever Alumni Update – Jan. 21, 2009 – Housman Leads Japanese League in Rebounds

Another good week for former Retrievers in the professional leagues as we look at six former student-athletes in four different countries and three different sports.

Professional Basketball

In Denmark, former Retriever Darryl Proctor scored 19 points and grabbed five rebounds in the Bakken Bears’ 89-87 loss to Aabyhøj NS. For the season, DP is averaging 18.1 points per game and 6.3 rebounds a contest.

In his second week in France with Olympique Antibes, Andrew Feeley scored 11 points in the Antibes 76-70 win over Cholet last night.

Over in Japan, Mike Housman and Toyota Tsusho moved to 12-0 on the season with a 72-59 victory over Aisin AW Daburyuareionzu Anjo. Housman scored 14 points and grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds that extends his league-leading average to 13.2 rebounds per game.

Professional Soccer

Two former Dawgs played for the Baltimore Blast against Monterrey last Sunday, with Guiliano Celenza scoring a two-point goal, while Billy Nelson added a shot in the Blast’s 7-6 loss to La Raza.

Professional Lacrosse

In the National Lacrosse League, former UMBC star Drew Westervelt scored two goals and added three assists in the Philadelphia Wings’ 12-8 victory over the Boston Blazers. Westervelt now has eight points on the young season, with five goals and three assists.

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