    Forgot about Munib “Mo” Dzuho. Found a reference to him about being a hoops coach at International University of Sarajevo. We need a list of former players who are coaching. (There may be one, I haven’t looked)

    Munib Dzuho, played a couple years in the mid-90s.

    McDermott also had Vince Polokavic for a year before he transferred somewhere West Coast, I believe.
    Big O was fun.

    Some of Bob Justis' favorite names to announce.

    This sure is a interesting get. I tend to agree with some of the other posters that it’s probably a great idea to get some international talent on this roster. The game has expanded world wide at high levels. It takes a lot of effort but why not go that route. St Mary’s has gone after Australian guys pretty hard and it’s worked well.

    this guy from his tape looks fluid and smooth. Looking forward to seeing him develop.

    Great handles and great passer. Aggressive on the drive with ability to pass and finish in traffic. Beautiful shooting stroke. I love the idea of going after more European players.
    How old is this guy?
    He'll be 19 this fall.

    He's never played senior level Euro ball so he'll have four years. At least that's my understanding in trying to get through archaic NCAA rules.

    Sorry. Just seeing BC’s post. Very similar thoughts.

    I attached a link to some highlights. He’s a quality passer with a pretty quick release and good shot. Didn’t see much of him blowing by guys so I feel agility and strength will probably be focus areas for him. Really like the look of his game, though. Only 18 years old and looks to be a solid piece.

    Ege Peksari

    Has already played 3 years of club/pro ball against older guys. Very long for a 6-5 kid. Has also played some internationally for the Turkish U20 national team.

    Repeatable shooting motion and instantly familiar with our style offense. Needs to work on quickness and improving lower body strength from the few clips I can find. Has always played against older guys so there is some maturity to his game already.

    I suspect that he's instantly a rotation piece and that he and Campbell will compliment each other pretty well going forward.

    Super preliminary opinion and I need to see more but I think we might have found something here.

    Haha. Ege Peksari is a 6’4” guard from Turkey. Going to track down some highlights. We will see how all of this pans out, but it’s nice to see us expand our search on recruits. Was not expecting Turkey!
