Evergreen State College basketball star Michael Parker is moving from the Shimane Susanoo Magic of Japan’s bj-league to the Wakayama Trians of the National Basketball League. Parker, the Cascade Conference Defensive Player of the Year and All-Cascade Conference first teamer in the 2002-2003 season, has been a star in Japan spending the last two seasons with Shimane and four seasons before that with Rizing Fukuoka. He led the bj-league in scoring four times and steals five times. He will team with his former coach Zeljko Pavlicevic and will play on wooden basketball courts in the NBL instead of the unpopular synthetic courts that the bj-league uses. – Link
