Richie Armand and Udoka Obiora graduate with the class of 2016

gg-A6-R-in-linegg-A4-U-in-line(Wenham MA) Julie and I took in the 2016 Gordon College graduation on sun-filled Saturday.

We attend this event primarily to get one last look at the seniors on the Gordon College men’s basketball team.

This year’s seniors were Richie Armand and Udoka Obiora.

Both players contributed to the ’15-16 Scots off the bench.

Richie was a passionate presence on the court and a fan favorite.  Richie hesitated to shoot but never hesitated on defense.

gg-A15-U-near-standgg-A17-R-near-standUdoka was easily, in my opinion, the most improved player on the team.  This season he handled the ball better, could get points around the basket, and blocked plenty of inside scoring attempts.  I had many pictures this season of Dokes rejecting shots.

I go to get pictures of players but can’t resist taking other photos as well.  I recently acquired a long lens and it was a big help in several of the long-range shots included in this entry.

We wish Richie (Education major) and Udoka (Economics and Business major) God’s blessing as they venture into the “real” world.
