Former BayHawks Update: Erik Daniels

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

We're still about a month away from the D-League draft that will help shape this season's Erie BayHawks roster. So, over the next few days/weeks leading up to the draft, I'm going to do my best to track down the current whereabouts of as many of last year's BayHawks as possible.

For starters, I'll take a look at Erik Daniels. Daniels was the team's best player last year, earning 1st-team All-D-League status.

The former Kentucky Wildcat just recently played his first game of the season for Azovmash Mariupol in Ukraine, scoring 14 points on 6-9 shooting in a one-point loss.

Daniels weighed in via Twitter after the game, saying, "[W]e lost our first game by one point. I didn't play my best game but I still managed to get 14 points. We need to work on our free throws."

Daniels' Twitter feed also included some additional insights. He said he'd never played for a European team that practiced so light, and he also said he plans to 20 points and 10 rebounds this season, which he did last year for Erie.

Hopefully Daniels continues to keep the tweets coming to keep us updated on his progress in Ukraine. His presence will be missed on the court for the BayHawks this season.
