Quickly assumed the leadership roll on the team as the steered towards a perfect season. Contributed a team best 19.9ppg and ranked among the league leaders in every statistical category.

That is exactly what he did and captured the National League Championship while being named playoff MVP and moving the team into the Premier League!
WON THE ISRAELI CHAMPIONSHIP!! Was a part of one of the strongest teams in recent memory in the Israeli competition and did not get a lot of playing time.

Tony led his team to a fantastic season but it ended in heartbreak as they did not win the championship to promotion to the top league. He lead his team in scoring, rebounding, blocks and steals and was second in assists. He was also among the league leaders in those same categories. He has shown a fantastic array of talent and has had some breakout games this season.....scored a season high 43pts on 7-11 3pt shooting against Maccabi Petah Tikva on 1/31/06,.....poured in 35pts against Hapoel on 3/29/06 to go along with 7rebs......dropped 30 pts and 10 rebounds to lead his team past Hapoel Lev Hasharon on 12/20/05 to restart his teams win streak after already being on an 8 game win streak.
Simply put he did EVERYTHING.
3 time All-American.....AMC North Player of the year.....Holds almost EVERY major statistical category record in St.Vincent's history....drew considerable NBA interest most noteably from the Jazz and the Nets. Washam finished his career at St. Vincent with 2,747 points. That is only because he broke his hand for a portion of last season missing about 10 games. Had he been healthy, he most certainly would have broken the 3,000 point plateau!
