Class of 2012
Logan Aronhalt, Casalpusterlengofor (Italy): Aronhalt may have only been a one-year rental for the Terps, but he’s proving to be quite the alumni for his Italian team, Casalpusterlengo. Aronhalt earned the starting guard job for them, and has not disappointed. He’s averaging 10.8 points per game, and connecting on 34.3% of his three pointers this season while chipping in 3 rebounds per game. His team is currently 7-5 and in fifth place in the DNA Sliver standings.
Alex Len, Phoenix Suns (NBA): Len’s career has gotten off to a rocky start for the Suns. After having two surgeries on his ankle following his Maryland career, Len was taken by the Suns with the 5th pick in the NBA draft. Since then, he’s been sitting idly on the bench while Miles Plumlee eats away at his minutes. Len has experienced soreness in his ankle throughout the season, and has only appeared in four games. He’s got 7 points on the season, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks. Still, Len is looking to get back on the court sometime soon, and has stated he’s feeling healthier in recent comments.
Class of 2011
Terrell Stoglin, Cholet (France): Stoglin has been a terror this season for Cholet this year, averaging 16.7 points per game, 2.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists. His Cholet team is only 5-6 on the season, but Stoglin has been their best scorer by far. Stoglin, in his second season playing overseas, appears to be prepped for a long career as a talented international player after averaging 19.9 points per game for Ilysiakos in Greece last year. His current French league is largely considered a step up in competition, and has produced a number of NBA players, so the pipeline to the big show isn’t yet dry.
Sean Mosley, Recanati (Italy): Mosley, a 2011 Maryland alum, has been absolutely unstoppable playing in the same league as Logan Aronhalt in Italy. Averaging 21 points per game and about 7 rebounds this season for Recanati after playing in Poland last season, Mosley scored a season high 27 points in his last outing against Mantovana on December 15th. His Recanati team is in 12th place at 5-7, but that’s not on Mosley. If you’re wondering, when Mosley and Aronhalt played one another earlier this season, Mosley scored 24 points, but Aronhalt’s team came out on top 74-72.
Class of 2010
Adrian Bowie, Herten Lions (Germany): Bowie has bounced around quite a bit since his time in College Park. From the D-League to Poland to Germany, Bowie has kept up with basketball. Bowie wrapped up his time with Hertner Loewen averaging 18 points per game last season. He is looking to play higher level basketball this season elsewhere, but has yet to sign with a team.
Dino Gregory, Phoenix Hagen (Germany): Gregory has also been playing over in Europe with the Phoenix Hagen. Gregory is averaging nearly 7 points and 5 rebounds per game for his team this season, and has been getting quality minutes (despite not starting). His Hagen team sits at 6-6 and in 9th place in the league.
Class of 2009
Greivis Vasquez, Toronto Raptors (NBA): Vasquez’ may have finally found his home with the Toronto Raptors. The fourth year point guard has bounced around from Memphis to New Orleans before being sent to Sacramento in the offseason. Well, the Kings traded him away to Toronto despite his solid play, and now it seems like Vasquez has found a welcome owner. On the year, Vasquez is averaging about 10 points and 5 assists per game, and while he hasn’t started yet for Toronto, he is coming off the bench and playing a significant role. Toronto is now 2-1 after the trade and 9-14 overall.
Landon Milbourne, Panionios (Greece): After playing a couple years of basketball in France, Landon Milbourne finds himself in the same league Terrell Stoglin and Travis Garrison previously played in in Greece. He has been a steady player for his Panionios, averaging 12.1 points per game in Eurocup play and 10.8 points per game in league play. Milbourne is averaging about 28 minutes a game. Panionios is sitting pretty in third place at 8-2.
Cliff Tucker, Huracanes Tampico (Mexico): Tucker has been playing in Mexico for two years now, and finds himself on the Huracanes doing most of their scoring. On the year, Tucker is averaging 17.8 points per game, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists. The Huracanes are 10-11 and in 7th place this year.
Class of 2007
James Gist, Panathinaikos (Greece): James Gist is putting together quite a career for himself in Europe. Gist was taken by the San Antonio Spurs with the 57th pick overall, but didn’t make much of a dent there. Since then, he’s played in Russia, Turkey, Serbia and Spain. Regardless, Gist is averaging 10.2 points per game in Euroleague play for his team, and 1.2 blocks. Better, perhaps, than all that, is that his Panathinaikos team is in second place (ahead of former teammate Landon Milbourne’s Panionios team).
Bambale Osby, Kolossos (Greece): Terps just flock to Greece, so that’s exactly what “Boom Boom” Osby has done himself. Osby previously played in France, Puerto Rico, Estonia, and Romania, but now is playing center for Kolossos. On the year, he’s averaging 12.4 points per game and 5.6 rebounds. Kolossos is 3-7 on the year though
Braxton Dupree, Heidelberg (Germany): Dupree is currently playing overseas in Germany for Heidelberg, averaging 3.4 points per game. He backs up Devin White, and his team is in third place at 10-3 this season.
