A really good story about UALR soph Michael Javes' background

One word that describes UALR sophomore Michael Javes is potential. He's got so much potential that Venezuela really wants him to one day play for its national team. And Web site Se Habla Basket (www.sehablabasket.com) writes and Tweets quite a bit about Javes.

Javes averaged 5.0 points and 4.2 rebounds per game as a freshman. But with added weight and strength, big things are expected of him this year.

Javes' international situation is a bit unique. He's from Cali, Columbia, which is where UALR lists his hometown. But his mother is Columbian and his father Venezuelan. It appears he'd like to play with Venezuela. But it's not that simple.
