LEWIS AND USA ATHLETICS INTERNATIONAL TAKE GOLD IN AFAFURA GAMES
Former MSOE star forward Adam Lewis (Lynwood, IL.) helped USA Athletes International Basketball team at the Arafura Games in Darwin, Australia win the gold medal with a 6-0 record. The seven-year-old tournament hosted thirty teams from around the world. Lewis was a driving force both offensively and defensively in the championship game.
Lewis a double major in architectural engineering and construction management surpassed the 1000 points plateau for his MSOE career. He is the first men’s basketball player to accomplish this goal in over a decade. This season he moved to second in career rebounding at MSOE. The best player in the LMC, Lewis led the MSOE basketball team to their first LMC playoff championship and a birth in the NCAA tournament. He led the league in scoring with a 17.2 average and his .475 three-point field goal percentage ranked as one of the highest in the LMC.
“This is another outstanding memory for Adam,” said MSOE head coach Brian Good. “The fact that he now has an international championship to go along with his Lake Michigan Conference championship is incredible.”
