SPHS grad Rodney Bartholomew Jr. wins NBADL Player of the Week Award

By Jack Tiebout.

Rodney Bartholemew Jr.’s dream has always been to play in the NBA. Despite the rather unconventional path he has taken from South Plaquemines High School to the NBA Development League (NBADL), his dream seems more within reach than ever. Bartholomew, who is in just his second year in the NBADL, won the league’s Player of the Week Award for the week of January 13-19. He averaged 32 points and 16 rebounds in two winning efforts that week.
