2 SDA Players Receive Division 1 NCAA Scholarships

Jordan and Cian

This week both, Jordan Blount and Cian Sullivan have taken massive strides forward in their basketball careers. Both SDA athletes this week have officially committed to play Division 1 basketball with two top American Colleges. Cian has joined the very talented LaSalle of Philadelphia, lead by head coach John Giannini. Jordan will take his talent to University of Illinois-Chicago, under the guidance of head coach Steve McClain.

For Cian, it hasn’t taken long. Cian started back in September of this year and 9 weeks into his year at the prestigious prep school of St.Andrews, he has been offered a place at LaSalle University. Cian has attended SDA two years in a row and has been the most improved player over the past two years with us. “It is a dream come true, and I am focused on both basketball and academics. I would like to thank SDA and especially Coach Pete for all they have done for my athletic and personal development” – Cian Sullivan.

For Jordan, this week sees him join an excellent athletic and academic college. Jordan has committed to University of Illinois-Chicago. This is a major step forward for Jordan and his basketball career. SDA was delighted to have Jordan take part at our 2015 invitational camp. This year he was the 3-point contest winner and camp MVP. Jordan’s hard work has taken him to a level which is unmatched, this summer Jordan was top scorer for Ireland at the European championships. This was the start of what is only going to become a very bright and successful future for Jordan.

SDA would like to wish both our camp members every bit of success for the coming seasons.
