"David and I are really happy for Brent. Anytime Coach Scott Davenport speaks as highly as he does about Brent you know he is special. We were close on several jobs for Brent but Coach Cláudio Pereira Figueiredo at Sampaense really liked him this time and feels he is a perfect fit for the team"said Michael Stinnett (Free Agency Basketball Director of Scouting). Former Bellarmine standout and overseas star Chris Dowe (current pro in Israel) at one time played for Sampaense early in his career.
