Zoo Crew Basketball would like to acknowledge the sudden passing of former Zoo Crew Player Desmond Sanders to the left, on September, 1, 2013. Desmond starting playing with Zoo Crew Basketball in 1996 and formed a son/father relationship with coach McCray.
Desmond played his High school basketball at St. Patrick's HS, where he won numerous Union County Championships and also won a Tournament of Champions at St. Patrick's, He was a 3.0 student in his four years at St. Patrick's.
Desmond continued his academic and basketball career at Garden City Juco in KS, Los Angeles Community College and he finished up his athletic career at Ramapo College.
Desmond was the poster child for Zoo Crew Basketball for a long time. His never quit attitude became the model of our program and he inspired other player's in the program to focus more on the defensive aspect of the game. The Zoo Crew Family will miss Desmond.
In his honor we will be starting the Desmond Sanders Scholarship Fund.
 
R.I.P. Desmond Sanders (ZC4L)
