When the second-leading scorer on the worst team in Division I announced his intention to test the NBA Draft waters, lots of folks said, "Are you serious?" Sure, the 6-9, 240 specimen attended a camp or two this spring, but Tim Parham was simply dreaming big. He just wanted to find out if he had any chance to become the first-ever player from the MEAC to leave school early and go to the pros.
Last night, the Hawks went up the road and went all Ocean State on Brown, coming back from eight down in the closing minutes to pull off the upset special. The hero of the day was this one particular NBA-bodied senior, who owned the chocolate-colored paint and turned in a double-double (and a half) - he also hit some key freebies down the stretch to hold off the Bear attack. If the big-dreaming UMES Fighting Hawks turn around a 2-26 season into a MEAC championship next March, then... Wait, are you serious?
