Great story in the Detroit News. The Jalen Rose Leadership Academy's first graduating class held its commencement today. This is the charter school that Jalen founded in the city back in 2011. The freshmen from that first class graduated today. According to the story, 100 percent of the grads are going to college, trade school or into the military.
He also got Isiah Thomas and Big Sean to show up for the ceremony.
So proud of Jalen and what he's done with this school. This is what a hero looks like. He's not changing the world, but he's changing the world of those kids.
According to MLive, he will accept the position today. Congratulations to Patrick on continuing the coaching tradition.

Tyus Battle is on the 24 player roster for the U19 FIBA World Championships being held in Greece. Training camp beings June 13 and finalists are expected to be announced June 15. Tyus was one of only 8 players who are part of the 2016 class.
The article didn't say what the final roster size would be. The world Championships are held June 27 - July 5. Hopefully he will make the final roster. It should be good experience regardless.
