Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

John Holland is in France and unfortunately he was involved in an on-court brawl, although it looks like he was just acting as a peacemaker.

During the tussle, former UNC player Jawad Williams appears to have Holland in a sleeper hold. Holland initially filed a complaint against Williams but withdrew it after Williams apologized.

Holland is number 13 in black and the incident occurs around the 1:00 mark, left side of screen.

BUmmer.

John is playing well - starting and leading his team in minutes and points - but the team is not doing well (2-9)

I think he was traded during the season. He was playing for Roanne last I heard, now he's with Gravelines

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

And this inspired me to look up how Carlos Strong is doing in the D-League.
Not playing much, but he has gotten into 5 games for Bakersfield.

I don't think he was traded. He spent one year at Roanne then went to Cajasol (Spain) and now Gravelines. I predict his next team will be.......the Philadelphia 76ers!

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

Fallout from the John Holland brawl - JH actually received a one game suspension, while Williams is suspended through March.

Another angle of the incident. This could have been really, really bad. Williams has the hold for a long time and it doesn't take long for someone to lose consciousness if done right. Let's move on.

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

Nice article about Jake O'Brien. He left his Ukrainian team due to the deteriorating situation in that country. On the court he was having a nice season.

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

For those unaware, Stijn "Ain't Nothin' but a Bucket" Dhondt is still playing pro basketball in his native Belguim. Now in his 12th season of pro ball, Dhondt is the only player from any team from the America East Class of 2002 still competing at the professional level.

His team, Bent Schoenen Waregem, is in first place at 25-1 in the second division.

Not to give too much away, but check OBW next week...

Also, Rashad Bell is playing professionally in Iraq -- yeah, Iraq -- check OBW in mid April.

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

First Class of 2014 update. Malik Thomas is hitting up the NYC basketball scene this summer. He's on a team in the Rucker Park league, played at Dyckman last night, and I believe he'll play at Pro City too.

Re: Boston University Alumni Updates

This pic is a year old, but I think older heads would appreciate it. BU greats Rashad Bell (CAS '05) and John Holland (COM '11). They would have been a great combo.
