Men’s Basketball

Will Daniels (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) was one of 22 of the nation’s top senior student-athletes selected to take part in the 2008 NABC All-Star Game. The game, which served as a tip-off event for the NCAA Final Four weekend, was played on April 4 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Daniels is the first Rhode Island student to participate in the event. A week later, classmate Parfait Bitee (Yaounde, Cameroon) was one of 62 seniors selected to play in the 56th Annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, the nation’s oldest amateur basketball tournament where players are able to showcase their talents for NBA scouts and representatives from international leagues.
