2000-2001 Bulldog Basketball

Season Outlook

Expectations are high heading into the 2000-2001 season for the Union University Bulldogs. Although losing five seniors, Union is poised to make the 4th consecutive appearance in the NAIA National Tournament. This season promises to be exciting. The Bulldogs have 7 players returning from last season plus 2 key transfers. This team has championship experience, as well as, athletic ability like few have seen here.

Anthony Brooks and Bubba Hoover will provide the senior leadership for this year’s bulldog team, and their contributions will help the Bulldogs return to the National Tournament. Hoover’s accuracy from the three point line and Brooks’ versatility will add to the Bulldog offense. Senior transfer Robert Joseph, coming off of an All-American season, will add size and experience to the post position.

Rodney Bond is the lone junior on this very talented team. Bond comes from Southwestern Illinois, where he tallied 21 points and 15 rebounds in the Junior College regional Championship. Bond will add size and athleticism down low.

Sophomore Jake Eaton is a proven three-point threat who will see minutes at the wing position. William Gray’s ability to defend well and finish on offense will put him in key roles this season, while Michael Katrosh can add instant offense at the three-point line. Zach Wiggs will be expected to step up and play a vital role at guard for the Bulldogs. Enelio Moreno will be hard to defend because of his ability to shoot from the perimeter, as well as, produce down low.

This year’s freshman class adds tremendous talent to the Bulldog team. Freshman guard Chima Abakue was the Dallas, Texas area leading scorer and true freshman forwards Will Harris and Ryan Dixon will add great skill to the perimeter. Michael Talley will also provide depth to the bulldog guards.
