Navy Freshman J.J. Avila Goes Off For 31 Points!

True freshman 6'7" J.J. Avila of McAllen, TX & Texas D1 Ambassadors alum tore up Towson today in the Midshipmen's 89-84 victory.  Add 6 rebounds, 5 steals & 2 assists to his totals for the day. They're partying down in the Rio Grande Valley, you can be sure!.

I just got off the phoen with proud Papa, Big JJ as he was leaving the gym in Maryland.  Man, was he pumped!  JJ, thanks for wearing the D1 Ambassadors colors and representing your family and country.  What a great performance!-Coach Max
