Savior (Saj) Joseph (’02) knows the importance of being a team player
Saj Joseph has countless fond memories of Acadia. Not surprisingly, most of them revolve around teamwork. “In 2000-2001, we were playing in the AUS playoffs. Phil Davis, a good friend, teammate and roommate, was in his final year and playing in his first playoff game. Phil was a recent transfer from UPEI. We were playing UCCB in the opening round. We were down by one point with about seven seconds left and it was our possession. The ball was inbounded to me and I was able to break free from a few players, get the ball up the court and drop it off to Phil for a wide-open shot, which he made at the buzzer, and then he proceeded, in all the craziness, with half our team following him, to make a run for the locker room. It was a great memory for our team and, of course, for Phil.”
