It’s high noon...

AJ Green chosen for Senior Bowl:

AJ Green accepted his invitation to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl. The event will give Green the chance to play in front of scouts before the draft.

Roessink’s transition to college basketball:

“Since I was 10 or 11 years old, I actually always wanted to play college basketball,” Roessink said.

Roessink was faced with several adjustments on and off the court in his transition from Europe to America.

Roessink, who was born in Arnhem, Netherlands, played as an amateur in professional basketball since he was 17.

His first taste of professional basketball was with the Dreamfield Dolphins, a club he helped promote to the Promotiedivisie, the second division of basketball in the Netherlands.

After that, Roessink moved on to the Dutch Windmills, a team that former NBA first-round pick Geert Hammink coached.

At 18, Roessink decided it was finally time to follow his dream.

Coach Mike Boynton said he found out about Roessink after John Cooper, the Cowboys’ special assistant to the head coach, was in contact with Roessink’s coach.

Boynton watched videos of Roessink playing for the Windmills and wanted him to come to Stillwater for a workout.

“We got some video, and (we) were really, really impressed,” Boynton said. “Except for European video is kinda hard to tell the competition level. Sometimes the video isn’t the best quality. And then we brought him here to work out for us, and it was a no brainer.”{O’Colly}
