4. NCAA D2 MEN: Final four has foreign flavor
November 16th, 2006 2:41AM

MOST COMMENTED


The NCAA Division II men's tournament continues Thursday with the semifinals at the 2006 DII Championship Festival in Pensacola, Fla. The final four will have a decidedly foreign flavor:

  • Ft. Lewis is led by Englishman John Cunliffe, considered one of the top strikers in the college game at any level. Cunliffe enters the semifinals with 27 goals and 16 assists.

  • Lincoln Memorial is coached by Brazilian Helio D'Anna, who starts eight Brazilians. (Former Railsplitter Frederico Moojens, another Brazilian, transferred for his senior year to Clemson, where he starts for the Tigers.)

  • Local entrant West Florida also has a samba touch. The Argonauts are led by a pair of Brazilians: forward Felipe Lawall (12 goals and 14 assists) and defender Eduardo Oliveira.

  • The fourth semifinalist, Dowling, starts players from Scandinavia (Norway and Sweden), West Africa (Guinea, Ivory Coast and Senegal) and the Caribbean (Jamaica). The Golden Lions' four Norwegian starters include 26-year-old grad student Morten Jensen, who has scored 22 goals.
