GSP Alumni Moves on to International Stage

Chris Avenant

A look back at a former featured prospect on the hardwood from Sacramento, Chris Avenant...

Chris Avenant, a Sacramento High School standout has taken on a new challenge. Chris, who currently plays for Northeastern University, played in 15 games last year and averaged about 7 minutes per game is on his way to Madagascar.

Chris is a native of South Africa and has been training In Africa with the South African National Team (SA). He's done well and now has been chosen to play with SA in Madagascar. The Nations cup starts this week and is the Olympic qualifying tournament for Africa. This is Africa's biggest basketball tournament. It will produce one winner that will represent the continent at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Paul Avenant, Chris's dad, dropped me a note about the good news. He also mentioned that the family attributes his success in moving up to the next level to the articles I wrote in GoldenStatePreps.com and Scout.com. He totally made my day.

Good luck to Chris in his quest for the Gold!

Above - AHHH… Memories of high school…………
