Thomas Garners Attention Following Tour

Following a successful season with the Blue Sharks, 6’2” point guard Don Thomas was selected to travel with the Tampa Bay Rebels to Mexico for a three game exhibition tour against professional teams from the top Mexican league. After averaging 13.3 points, 2 steals, and 6 assists, the local club Panteras de Aguascalientes invited Thomas to stay and practice with the team during the preseason. “We do not know if the invitation will turn into a contract this year, however, he played well enough on both ends of the court to get the attention of the local coaching staff,” Coach Rojas commented. He added, “Don is a success story. He is the first player coming out of our developmental system that gets one step closer to playing international basketball.”
