Interesting prospect. Left handed shooter, except when he is at or around the rim, then he uses his right hand very nicely. Good looking 3 point shooter, but his this year he only shot 27%. Like Mislav, he has international competition experience. Could be a good fit at the 3 spot.

As Aces & Eights said a very intriguing prospect. Seems to have a pretty set of offense of skills - backs people down in the post but can pop out and shoot the three pointer as well. It does concern me a little bit that he has a slow release on the shot; but the opposing team would have to come out to guard him as he is certainly a capable three point shooter. Also not overly athletic for a D1 prospect but again very versatile on the offensive end. Not sure about his defense as there was no footage on the defense side of the ball.

I would prefer a player with a strong post presence like Vance Johnson. However, a player like this would be the next best option I suppose. But again I think we need a solid big guy that can have an immediate impact next year; but we all know that is the hardest thing for school like Evansville to get. Normally we have to develop guys like this over four years.

Sounds like a back up plan to me if the coaches cannot get their first options.

Monroe made it to Hutcinson, KS this year. I guessing Novsek spent some time out there last week.

Info and stats at www.njcaa.org

27 points, 46% FG, 5/15 3pt, 20 rebounds in two games. Lost to the team who has made it to the championship game.

Apparently made Croatia's FIBA U16 team. Can't find any stats though.

That three point percentage scares me....

I think Vance Johnson would be the better fit because he can play center. We have two guys who need to play at the 4 (Kuhlman and Hall), also Solo could be a role guy there.

Key point, be patient, never judge a coach on Year 1!

Looks like he played a total of two minutes in one game in international competition and did not score.

Sorry, not impressed. Very poor shooting % for a big guy at the Juco level. The three point % is very poor. The video showed very little athleticism or ball handling ability.
