Alumni

Smiles all around
A reunion of recent Spider basketball alumni made for a fun afternoon in Robins.

Some alumni visit their old classrooms when they return to campus. For a group of 11 who came back in July, the place to go was the court at the Robins Center.

Former men’s basketball guards Cedrick Lindsay, ’14, and Kendall Anthony, ’15, organized a reunion game that attracted an estimated crowd of 350 to the Robins Center. The other players were Terry Allen, ’16, Darien Brothers, ’13, T.J. Cline, ’17, Trey Davis, ’16, Chase Fletcher, ’17, ShawnDre’ Jones, ’17, John Moran, ’16, Deion Taylor, ’16, and Marshall Wood, ’17.

The game was low-key, and the vibe in the building was decidedly friendly, though it was impossible not to enjoy the obvious competitiveness between Jones and Anthony as they guarded one another with amused but determined grins.

After two halves and a brief overtime, they took the microphone to thank everyone for coming and offered a wish.

“Hopefully, we can do this every year for you guys,” Cline said.

That got one of the loudest rounds of applause.
