Forgot about Ian

He plays for UNICS Kazan in the VTB which is the leading league in Russia, West Asia, and Eastern Europe. Currently his team is playing the Eurocup and are undefeated at 8-0. Ian averages 14 points and 5 boards as the starting center. He's been with this team for 3 years now. If they continue their play in the Eurocup they will be invited to play in the Euroleague, an all encompassing European basketball superleague. One of Ian's teammates is Luke Harangody, formerly of Notre Dame. Ian starts, Harangody comes off the bench.

One name I didn't see on the initial list was Jon Smif (maybe that was for a reason). He is averaging 8.9 ppg for Ohio, starting every game this year. Also 5.6 rpg and shooting 68% from the field.

He's a nice player for Ohio. I never remember that he has eligibility left.

Shark mascot gets reprimanded at 1:15.

You'd think the shark would have been more animated when we he was getting dressed down by the ref. I mean, that was his moment to shine. Weak sauce.

Brian Conklin, currently playing for the Townsville Crocodiles in the Australian League, has signed to play again for the Southland Sharks in New Zealand. He helped to lead the Sharks to the championship in the land of wizards and hobbits. Should be no surprise that he is very popular with the fans Down Under. He's a great representative of SLU.

Any idea how much players make overseas? I assume it varies from country to country but have no clue if they make good living and where?

Don't remember which user it is on here, but his infamous screen at Chaifetz against Washington is in someone's signature as a link that says "NSFW".

Since I was born in the first half of the 20th century, those posting/cutting/pasting skills elude me. But if you Google"Townsville Crocodiles", their website shows a fair amount of video. Haven't noticed any big violent screens but Conk gets a lot of dunks, often off a pick 'n roll. Crocs often show the " top 5 plays of the game" and often 2 of them are Brian slams. Fun to watch and I now don't even mind the big McDonalds logo on their unis.

Brian's nickname in both countries is "King" Conklin. Those wacky Oceanians !

imagine if manning had 1% of the enthusiasm Conklin shows on that one single play

How can you question his enthusiasm? Not everyone is as vocal as Conklin.

So why is that your contention? Do you know John or did you just pull that out of your ass.

We all wish big men were more physical, emotional, intimidating whatever you want to call it. 99% of them aren't like that. Still I've seen a lot more emotion out of John this season. His offense is still perplexing but he's very vocal on defense and has gotten really heated this year after he's been called for fouls.

I think Evans has the right mix, maybe a bit too stoic for me. Glaze goes way overboard, so much that I think it hurts his game.

Джюсти Лов, Джюсти Лов!

That video is probably one of the great basketball clips I have ever seen. Love everything about it. Thanks for sharing.

Джюсти Лов will always be my favorite Billiken.

And I do not believe they have won a game since he started playing.
