WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — When William & Mary wins a basketball game at Kaplan Arena, the players go through the handshake line with their opponents and then, instead of heading to the locker room, they cross the court for handshakes and high-fives with fans who crowd into the front row to congratulate the team.
Rowley isn’t a glass-half-full type of person, he’s a glass-99-percent full person. He doesn’t like basketball, he loves it. He hasn’t enjoyed his five years at William & Mary, he has reveled in them.
But that isn’t what makes him unique. After graduating magna cum laude in three years with a double major in computer science and finance, he decided to go to law school and is now listed as an academic “L-2” on the team’s roster — the only NCAA men’s basketball player with that distinction, according to William & Mary.
