The Crusader men’s basketball program has a storied history of welcoming international talent, as 27 international players from 17 different countries have dotted Valpo’s rosters over the last 19 years.
This year’s team is no exception, as it features a pair of international student-athletes: Vashil Fernandez, who has represented his native Jamaica in senior international competition, and Moussa Gueye, a graduate transfer from Alabama who is a native of Senegal.
“I haven’t been back home in 15, 16 months, and I shouldn’t say this, but I really don’t miss it. Don’t tell my mom that, but we are really a great family here.”
— Lubos Barton (1998-2002)
