Despite spending most of June overseas back home in England, Frank Phillips College Plainsmen Basketball Coach Chris Hackett has continued to add depth to his teamâ€™s roster for the 2011-12 season.
Last week, Hackett added two more players to the Plainsmen roster in 6-6 Earl Hill from Georgia and 6-0 Rodshard Davis, who hails from the Houston area.
Davis provides the Plainsmen with a good defender, who is a pass-first type point guard who can handle the ball very well.
