    European/foreign players

    In Freddie's news conference he said that he planned on recruiting a few players from Europe, this got me wondering how many foreign players ISU has had that were actually good. Im sure there are probably more than I think there are but I can only think of like 3.

    I dont really think you can look at ISU's history to form an opinions or anything about European players coming here. The difference between the Europe game 20 years ago and now is absolutely huge. People weren't recruiting it as much back then as they are now either.

    That being said, I think it could be good if you find good talent early enough in Europe..i.e. someone who might potentially have NBA talent but you start scouting them early in their "high school." Who knows though.

    I think Rancik, Lucca and Jiri played HS or JUCO in the US before they came to ISU. Not sure about Julo.

    Lucca does have that single-game three-point record. Fun game at Drake that night.

    Lucca played here in Decatur for a year. Part of a local Christian schools effort to build a team basically completely on foreign players.
