Gratitude best sums up the closing chapter of Yuta Watanabe's college basketball career.

He shared his thoughts with the world in a Twitter message on March 10, two days after the George Washington University Colonials' season-ending loss to Saint Louis in the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship's second round.

"Thank you for everything the last four years. I enjoyed every single moment and I'll definitely miss college basketball," tweeted Watanabe, who hails from Kagawa Prefecture.
