(NECN) - With all the talk of Harvard advancing to round two of the NCAA, the team may want to consider this little guy as a new recruit.

His name is Eddie and he's a 15-year-old sea otter who lives at the Oregon Zoo.

A recent medical test found Eddie had some arthritis in his limbs and vets suggested he get some exercise to help.

A trainer got Eddie to use his front limbs on a plastic basketball.

He is said to love to play almost as much as he loves the fishy treats he gets after a basket.
