Good for him. He deserves some recognition for his play this year.

Agreed Rocks, he's shown fantastic improvement even from the beginning of the season until the A10 tourney. He's become a smarter player. I hope he has a great tourney. Lets Go UMASS !!!

Nice story on a lot of fronts - his play, his ability to adapt, his seriousness as a student - what a great role model for kids, standing out so much more than another dumb top 10 dunk on SC.

Perhaps we are the new choice for international players and Francophones, hello Mozambique?

:D

Too bad the globe put Mike Lasme's picture instead of Stephane's

Great story about Stephane.
Marty Dobrow is one hell of a writer.

It would be a nightmare for Behler, but I wish we had both Lasme's still on the team.

For me, Lasme is the most exciting player on the team, and will likely end up being one of the best from this group. Amazing considering how he started.

Interesting point on Briggs in the article. If Briggs were here, Lappas would have no reason for (and no way of) signing Lasme. Briggs may have been good, but I'm not sure he could be any better than what Lasme has become.

First off... that is gross that the globe put Mike's pic up. Just awful...

Second, is it just me, or does Stephane's life seem strangley similar to what could have been the plot for "The Air Up There 2"?

I sent a POLITE note to Globe Sports editor explaining the error, corect picture and URL. We'll see if they issue a correction or let it go.
