The Santa Barbara Breakers begin their 3rd basketball season tonight, April 17 against the Beijing Aoshen Olympian's in Rosemead, California. The Breakers are coming off a magnificient 18-0 season, conquered the West Coast Pro Basketball League Championship and was rewarded with two tours to China in the fall of 2008, compliments of the Chinese Government. Having won 29 of their last 30 contests, the Breakers will meet head on with the Olympians, which figures to be a very physical yet fast-paced game. The Breakers return Rashid Byrd (7'0''-C-81, college: E.Oklahoma St. JC), MVP Josh Merrill (6'9''-F-74, college: UCSB), point guards Shantay Legans (5'10''-G-81, agency: Court Side, college: Fresno St.) and Mark Peters (5'11''-G-81, college: Cal-Riverside), shooting guards Allan Purnell (6'4''-G-82, college: Pacific) and Tim Taylor (6'3''-G-82, college: Wayne St., NE). Added to the mix for the season opener is Zack Fray (6'6''-F-81, college: Santa Ana CC), Jerry Dupree (6'7''-F-81, college: USC), who was injured last season, requiring surgery to his right knee and Albert Strickland (6'8''-C-81). Rounding out the roster is Tremaine Townsend (6'9''-F-86) and Rob Haynes (6'4''-G-86). The Breakers have received word that Montecito resident and recent graduate Taylor Rochestie (6'1''-G-85) may play in some games this season. Rochestie is projected to eventually play professionally overseas in the fall of 2009. For further information, log on to or Breakers office number is 969-7542.
