Bahamas National Team/future Kansas University power forward Dwight Coleby couldn’t play next to his older brother, Kadeem, in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation Championships June 8-21 in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
The brothers’ planned reunion wasn’t wrecked because of any untimely injury.
It was spoiled by a thief who broke into Coleby’s buddy’s car outside a Nassau gymnasium and swiped clothes, shoes and, more importantly, Coleby’s passport.
The passport was stolen three days before Coleby was to leave for the CBC tourney. To get a new one, he needed a copy of the police report to take to Bahamas passport office. The report was delayed for unknown reasons.
“You would think that some people who have the authority would have assisted and made sure that he was able to go (on trip with teammates),” an irate Bahamas National team coach Mario Bowleg told the Bahamas Tribune.
“He was told that he will not be able to get the police report until Friday — a week later and the same time that we are traveling. Tell me why he has to wait a week after to get the report when he already made it known to them (police) that he is trying to travel with the men’s national team. We thought that they would have made a special effort to try to get the report out in sufficient time so that he can apply for the passport,” Bowleg added to the Tribune.
Coleby has since received a new passport in the mail. However, he is waiting on a copy of an I-20 form, which he needs to bring to the U.S. Embassy in Bahamas to receive a new visa.
This means he likely won’t be in Lawrence for approximately two weeks. He had hoped to have been here right at the conclusion of the CBC tourney.

...Added Jackson: “I came in right away and was really aggressive. I attacked the basket, made some 3s to help open the floor up, and just made plays for my teammates and tried to ignite us in the press.”
Paschal Chukwu, a 7-foot-2 center who left Providence after his freshman season, has decided to transfer to Syracuse. He also visited KU, Michigan State, Nebraska and Iona. KU had no scholarships available, thus he would have had to pay his own way to KU one year before being eligible for a scholarship in 2016-17.
