Jeff Brooks’ Unicaja team won the EuroCup championship yesterday. That win means that his team will move up to EuroLeague play next season. Here’s hoping Jeff sticks with them next season and becomes just one of a handful of Penn Staters to have played in the EuroLeague.
I know Pete Lisicky and Jan Jagla got a couple of season of EuroLeague play in during their careers. There’s probably a couple of more who have made it at one point or another.
EDIT: After digging a little deeper into Jeff’s past, it turns out that he already has a couple of EuroLeague seasons under his belt. In 2012-13, Jeff played for Cantu who made it through the EuroLeague qualifying round. In 2014-15 he played for Dynamo Sassar an Italian team that had gotten a wild card entry into the EuroLeague for the season.
