CEDARVILLE- Their teammates love to imitate the accent. Who doesn't know the Jamaican accent? It's a national export -- like reggae and the Rastafari movement-- that doesn't show up on any economic reports.

"We're pretty used to it," Ricardo Alliman said. "We just laugh whenever they try to imitate it."

Alliman, Daniel Rose and Christopher Walker stick out on the basketball court at Cedarville University not just because of their distinctive accents, but because of their talents. They are three of the top five scorers on the team, and all together, they pull in more than half of the team's rebounds. Alliman, 20, and Walker, 26, hail from Kingston, the capital of Jamaica, and Rose, 24, grew up in the popular tourist area of Ocho Rios, on the northern coast.
