Davis looking to play
pro volleyball in Europe

Former UH volleyball player Brenton Davis plans to play professionally in Europe next year.

Davis is scheduled to leave for Germany the first week of August to meet his agent, Tim Kelly, in Europe. Kelly, a former UCLA player, sponsors a European tour in late August that includes matches against prospective clubs to give U.S. athletes exposure to the European clubs.

Davis, an All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation performer, could sign a contract to play with a German club before he leaves Hawaii. If he doesn't sign, Davis will tour with a team comprised of other U.S. athletes looking for the same thing.

"It's still kind of tentative right now," Davis said. "I'm leaving it in Tim's hands. I'm going into it blind.

"If I do well, I'll have my choice. I may sign before, (but) I don't think I'll sign unless it's a really good offer."


Men's basketball head coach Riley Wallace is excited about the possibility of ESPN televising the Rainbow Classic. "There have been no assignments, but it's a possibility," Wallace said. ... Former UH basketball player Troy Ostler is in Orange County today working out for scouts from overseas teams. Ostler worked out with top NBA prospects in Chicago earlier this month, but it is not likely he will be drafted tomorrow. ... Senior forward Mindaugas Burneika is trying out for the Lithuanian national team. ... Senior guard Predrag Savovic's eligibility questions are still being worked on, Wallace said. ... The Rainbow Basketball Camp had 210 participants. ... Softball head coach Bob Coolen is on a long recruiting trip, checking out prospects in Colorado and Calif
