    Lucca Staiger update?

    Has anyone heard or can anyone find how Lucca is doing in Europe? I've been trying to find info online but haven't been able to find him anywhere.

    Re: Lucca Staiger update?

    I haven't seen anything online but I'll make a few calls and get some impressions from those that have stayed in contact with him.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Lucca Staiger update?

    On another site's free board, he's been posting periodic e-mails. Recently had to come home (Germany) from Italy as he was sick as a dog and he missed 4 games there.

    Re: Lucca Staiger update?

    Would he have been sick if he were in Ames and playing in the CCL? I'm concerned about his development.

    Re: Lucca Staiger update?

    All I can find is that Lucca appears to be on the U20 German National Team (Division B) that will be playing in the FIBA European Championships in Romania August 1-10. I think his team plays 8/1 (Azerbaijan), 8/2 (Sweden), 8/3 (Ireland) and 8/4 (Czech Republic). How they do in pool play will determine the rest of their schedule. There is no mention of individual stats that I could find. There are 21 people listed on the German U20 team. Hopefully this link will take you to the roster page: U20 European Championship Men 2008 - Division B&

    Does anybody have more info?

    Thanks...

    Re: Lucca Staiger update?

    There is also an FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Athens July 14-20 that the German team is involved in...again I could find no mention of Lucca.

    Edit: Lucca is not part of the Athens Roster for Germany.

    Re: Lucca Staiger update?

    Maybe he isn't really playing on a team, but rather decided to go home and not come back. Soon his parents will call GM and ask to release him from his scholly...

    ...too soon?

    Re: Lucca Staiger update?

    Fortunately, there hasn't been any news for a while about the charge for interfering with official acts (or whatever it was). Hopefully he won't miss any games for that or anything.

    He broke the law and will miss games for that. I'm sure when he comes back there will be a press release stating he will miss 2 games or something to that effect.

    I should have been more specific, sorry - I meant conference games. Hopefully it's just the exhibition games, or something like that. I agree that there should be ramifications - Jiri got busted for borrowing a car.

    Yeah, I agree. I'm sure it will be a 2-4 game suspension including the exhibition games. No chance this will lead to him missing any conference games.
