Villanova-heavy Omega Medical wins Delco Pro-Am title

Nick Laham

After taking down a team of Temple basketball players from past-and-present to make the finals, the Omega Medical team that features mostly Villanova basketball players took the 2013 Delco Pro-Am title -- over St. Joes-heavy Radano Associates.

The annual Delco Pro-Am league meets weekly at Haverford College and offers a chance to see college and professional basketball players take to the same court for offseason play. In most cases, alumni-ties are the building block for teams in the summer, and while they may not wear school uniforms, teams have very similar pedigrees. In Delco, the Omega Medical team was a stand-in for the Wildcats of Villanova -- with a roster that included 'Nova alums Antonio Pena, Reggie Redding and Shane Clark, along with current Wildcat James Bell.

Pena and Redding are both active professionals in Spain and Germany. On Sunday, they combined for 49 points as their Omega Medical team crushed Radano & Associates, 91-72, to win the Delco Pro-Am final. Pena was named the league's Most Valuable Player, his second such award in the last three seasons.

Pena had 25 points alone and pulled down 10 rebounds while Redding scored 24, Shane Clark added 17 and James Bell put in 10 points in the win.

For Radano, guard Langston Galloway buried his first three attempts from deep and helped to build an early 20-4 lead. The St. Joes guard had a team-high 23 points. His outburst caught the Wildcats off-guard at first, but Omega didn't break, picking up their pace on defense and taking control, heading into halftime with a one-point lead, 46-45.

Radano & Associates is a team comprised primarily of players from Big 5 rivals, St. Josephs.

Redding will head off to Berlin next weekend to join ALBA Berlin, in the German Basketball Bundesliga, while Pena is still waiting to see where he will suit up this season -- he told the Delco Times that he hopes to return to Europe after playing for Caceres in Spain last season.
