Retriever Alumni Update – 3/4/10

Another good week for former Retrievers in the professional leagues as we look at eight former athletes in three sports in four countries.

Professional Basketball

Former Retriever Darryl Proctor and his Danish squad Bakken Bears are in the quarterfinals of the Canal Digital Ligaen, where they will face off against the Svendborg Rabbits. DP finished the season averaging 18.4 points per game, 5.9 rebounds and 2.2 steals. He was second in the league in steals and 10th in scoring.

Over in Japan, Mike Housman and Toyota Tsusho are undefeated (19-0) with two weeks to go in the regular season. He is first in the league in rebounds, averaging 12.0 rebounds per game, and is fourth in scoring with 16.3 per contest.

In France, Andrew Feeley scored six points in 13 mins for Olympique Antibes in a 91-84 loss to Evreux. In nine games for the Antibes he is averaging just over 10 points per game.

Professional Lacrosse

In the National Lacrosse League, former UMBC star Drew Westervelt scored 4 goals and picked up an assist in the Philadelphia Wings’ 15-11 win over Buffalo. He now has 14 goals and 16 assists on the season. Jon Harasym played for Buffalo in that contest.

Another former UMBC star, Dan Marohl, has been signed by the Minnesota Swarm and scored a goal and added two assists in the Swarm’s 13-12 win over Colorado. Here’s the link to the story on Minnesota’s website about the signing.

Professional Soccer

Giuliano Celeza and Billy Nelson both played well in the Baltimore Blast’s 23-14 over Philadelphia on Sunday. Celenza scored a two-point goal and an assist, while Nelson blocked three shots.

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.
