  • Stanko Barac could move back to TAU Ceramica soon
  • What a night in Belgrade with a overtime win for Crvena Zvezda against Buducnost
  • In Germany, Brose Baskets Bamberg ended an 8 game losing streak in the German League and Euroleague combined with a short win against Trier. Christian Hoffmann came up with a surprising performance however for the losing team, he scored more points in this game than in his whole season so far.
  • As you know, we at Ball in Europe have a love/hate relationship with Euroleague TV. But when I saw this EL.TV clip on youtube, I had some doubts about the seriousness of the person that uploads the videos. I was asking myself what is the stranger thing, calling a video about Dajuan Wagner "simphony" (sic) making an allusion to the German composer Richard Wagner, the fact that Richard Wagner is not known for composing symphonies but operas, the fact that Wagner’s well known Valkyrie is also used in the movie Apocalypse now or the involuntary sarcastic description of the video on youtube: Dejuan Wagner is a very consistent player.
  • The Copa del Rey is coming closer.

  • Nicolas Batum announces that he will be in the NBA Draft this upcoming summer.
  • The first Bundesliga basketball game in the German Free-TV for three years was a blowout win by ALBA Berlin in Bamberg. However, we saw one of the nicest plays of the season so far.
  • The 22nd edition of the World Junior Tournament will be held from June 18 to 22 in Douai, France. Former players that showcased in Douai are Carmelo Anthony, Tony Parker or Andrei Kirilenko
  • Vote for the Adriatic League All-Stars and the German Bundesliga All-Stars
  • Second player of the month award for Vladimir Stimac in the Baltic League
  • Curtis Borchardt wins the MVP of the Day in the Spanish ACB
  • After being waived by Prokom Trefl, Eugeniusz Kijewski is now rumored to become Polish NT headcoach
  • Alpella, which is a club formed to let young players develop, beat Efes Pilsen this Saturday. Apparently, they have developed too much that they have beaten the two Euroleague competitors from Turkey. Omer As?k is putting his names higher and higher in the Mock Drafts by another monster game 25 points, 14 rebs. and 6 assists vs. Loren Woods and Andre Hudson! (Thanks for the hint, Kerem)
