Withers will join the brand new Israeli core of the team and will be the starting Power. A[SIZE=4] graduate at Charlotte College[/SIZE], Withers went undrafted and spent the past two years playing in two different teams in Turkey, Alpela and Beykozpor. Last season he averaged 12.5 and 8 rebounds for game. Holon will now look for more foreigners to complete it’s roster.[/SIZE][/FONT][/FONT]

just checking…is that sarcasm or being called ‘Charlotte College’ good in your eyes?

Our old friend from Hofstra, Antoine Agudio is going to play in Turkey.

Ahhh ok thanks TNI, I didnt see that.

University of Charlotte. Charlotte College. Anything without “UNC” in it is golden in my book!

By the way, I got your message. I’ve been real busy lately transitioning into law school so I haven’t been able to call you back right away, but I don’t think I’ll be able to do that flyer. I no longer have Photoshop and I don’t have the original file (I think it was in the laptop that was stolen??). But jfickett should have the photoshop file. Anyone with photoshop should be able to go in there to open the file and make changes. Definitely e-mail me if there’s any questions.

This is how Israelis talk. They called it Charlotte College, because the guy who wrote this doesn’t speak or in this case write English very well, so at some point the writer received a profile of Curtis and somewhere in translation University of North Carolina at Charlotte became Charlotte College. It’s written exactly the way I have ever heard an Israeli speak English.
