    Maybe there's not that much interest since he only played one injury-filled year at ISU but I did some checking to see what I could find on Hans. He signed with Mitteldeutscher ("MBC") in the German league. I always assumed he would do this since he has a huge advantage compared to most Americans, having German citizenship through his parents.

    On Eurobasket.com, I saw that MBC was one of the bottom teams in the German first division last year - it looks like they barely missed being relegated to the 2nd division - with a record of 10-24. Like Matt's team in Spain, it's in a smaller city and doesn't appear to qualify for intra-Europe play so they won't be paying big bucks / euros.

    Hans is listed as the back-up PF to Kruize Pinkins (South Florida). Two other starters are Americans that went to Iona and Bradley. (Two OTHER starters appear to be Serbs both named "Djordje", which you don't see every day)

    A little Cyclone hoops trivia. I hope the young man does well; I'm sure not getting his health back last year was frustrating after two previous lost seasons.

    hope he can do something and have a career. Not going to hate on a guy that was out there trying to play through endless injuries. Let's face it, last year was a train wreck with injuries, but Brase had the worst of it. Poor guy was beat up all year.

    While I’m not sure of his full abilities, he made it clear to Heft on the post game show at the season’s end that he was going to pursue a professional career after getting his knee looked at in NY.
    The guy definitely isn’t a quitter. I wish him well.

    Yeah, it's hard to know how much all these knee problems will have reduced his mobility when he's finally back to full strength. Hopefully, he can be healthy enough for a solid career.

    No doubt. Honestly, his injury might have had the worst impact on us (along with solo) not because he was he was the beatbox player, but he filled a need.
