A light news day today on the Banneret. Here’s what’s up:

The Big News

Get used to hearing this a lot: Dillon Gabriel has himself a preseason award:

Around the Kingdom
AJ Davis Wins Dominican Hoops Title
Shout-out to AJ, who earned a ring with his team in the Dominican league and shared his accomplishments with Knight Nation:
AJ had a solid year in the pros, doing what he does best: scoring, rebounding, and causing havoc on defense.
It’s easy to dismiss former UCF players who play internationally as guys who “didn’t make it.” But that is totally wrong. There are a lot of jobs out there overseas for former college players, and we see several former Knights extend their basketball careers in other countries. The more experience they gain, the better, not just for their own careers in terms of gaining financial security, but also for their own ability to extend their lives in basketball after they play as coaches, mentors, and in other roles.
So congrats to AJ, as well as all former Knights who carry the shield overseas!
