Thomas Named Blue Sharks MVP
Blue Sharks point guard Dontarrius T. Thomas was recently named the team’s 2015 MVP. Rebels GM Fernando Rojas commented, “Don understood the purpose of the Blue Sharks and took advantage of it. We want to prepare players for international competition, but only a small percentage will make the jump. He did a great job listening and absorbing every recommendation we made to improve his game. His skill level and smart approach to the game earned him a spot on the Rebels roster in the upcoming international tour.”
The Blue Sharks finished their first year of operation as the Tampa Bay Rebels developmental team. The team played close to twenty games in the summer, allowing players to develop their game and coaches to learn the basics of coaching. “We are building a special basketball program in Tampa. We provide a window of opportunity for people interested in coaching as well as players looking to compete within an organized structure,” Rebels GM Fernando Rojas said.
