PLAYER OF THE WEEK
James White - #21 - Guard - Cincinnati
After being in the top two in the NBA D-League in scoring average, James White has received an NBA GATORADE Call-Up to the Houston Rockets. White scored 36 points against Reno earlier this week and did not play in the other Arsenal game this week. White will be the 12th GATORADE Call-Up of the 2008-09 season and will join the Rockets as they take on the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday, March 3rd.
The Arsenal look to bounce back from a tough road trip with a win at home on Wednesday, March 4th against Fort Wayne (7:00 P.M.). The Arsenal will finish their season series vs. the Los Angeles D-Fenders with a final home and home series beginning on Friday at the STAPLES Center before returning home Saturday for a 6:00 P.M. start. The season series is currently tied at 2-2.
This Saturday, the Arsenal are proud to host a variety of events that will help celebrate the local Anaheim community. Before the game, the A-List Girls will host a dance clinic for dancers of all ages and levels at the Anaheim Convention Center from 11:00 - 4:00. Dancers will learn new dance moves and choreography as they perform during that night's game! The community is urged to come to the arena early to celebrate Asian Heritage Night. Starting at 5:00 p.m., watch special Asian dances, music, and performances.
