Update on ex-Bama players

It's been a while since I posted, so hopefully, this will make up for it....

Turk Telekom faced Panionios for the fourth time this year in Fiba EuroCup competition and Tuesday's game was no different than the first three, another tough and close game full played with full intensity. Both sides stayed in the game till the last second but Turk Telekom managed to grab the third straight victory over Panionios. Despite creating an 8 points deficit in the last minutes Turk Telekom paid for missing the free throws and a 7-0 Panionios run cut the lead to one. Ercument Sunter immediately called a time out to prevent a possible loss only six seconds remaining and the Ankara side sealed the deal without letting the visitors send them to the line. Telekom big men Erwin Dudley and Derrick Alston totally added 32 points and 10 boards as Jan-Henridk Jagla and Tutku Acik scored in double figures. On the other hand Kennedy Winston nailed a game high 20 points and also added 6 steals while Andre Hutson hit 16. Turk Telekom clinched a place in the quarter finals and if they beat Lokomotiv Rostov in Ankara next week for the leadership, Panionios will only have to defeat Charleroi to get the second ticket for the quarter finals.

Here is an update on ex-Bama players and some other players that have generated interest on this board in the past.

FYI Bamahoops and Alias,

For some reason, the IT nazis at work have blocked the Google sign-in bar at the top of the blog, so I will not be able to comment as often :(

I can still pull up the blog, I just have to save my feedback for after hours, which I guess will make me think about it first, so that may be a good thing the way this up and down season has gone....

Tis okay... I think you can bypass that if you log into google (via then try the blog.

BTW- thanks for the "where are they now" update. If you don't mind I'll bold the players to make it easier to read.
I'm amazed that Ansley and Benoit are still playing. They must really love the game.

You were right. That worked.

I find it amazing to still see guys like that playing also, especially a guy like Benoit, who chooses to live in Japan when he has already made NBA dollars for years....
