Where are they now? | Miles Jackson-Cartwright


Over the summer, 2014 Penn graduate and former basketball captain Miles Jackson-Cartwright signed overseas with Dutch club Aris Leeuwarden.  And while we have to wait and see how the Quakers perform this season in his absence, basketball season starts a bit early overseas.

After serving primarily as a shooting guard for Penn, Jackson-Cartwright has taken on the role of point guard for the Dutch club and has found himself starting in three of the team's first four games.

It appears as though the transition was a smooth one for the Van Nuys, Calif., native at least on the court.  Jackson-Cartwright has led Aris Leeuwarden in points and assists per game with 17.8 and 6.5, respectively.

Jackson-Cartwright is one of four Americans with the team – all but one of whom graduated this past year.  Joining Jackson-Cartwright from the States are Marquise Simmons (St. Bonaventure), Ryan Watkins (Boise State) and Philip Bach (Santa Clara).

Aris Leeuwarden has started 2-2 in the Netherlands DBL with all four Americans starting alongside Dutch guard Dexter Hope.  The team struggled to a 13-25 record and seventh place finish last season, though with so much turnover in the league - only one of Leeuwarden's six most used players was with the team last year - team results vary greatly.
