Slam rookies Poole, Duty join veteran roster for 2011 IBL season
The Bellingham Herald
Count former Western Washington University men's basketball star Michael Duty among those most excited to see rival big man Blake Poole recently join a Bellingham Slam practice. Duty, a versatile 6-foot, 6-inch forward, spent a good portion of his career with the Vikings banging up against the 6-5, 265-pound center from Saint Martin's University. Poole finished his senior season with the Saints as the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year and a NCAA Division II All-American while Duty was named a GNAC first-teamer after leading Western in scoring at 16.4 points per game.
