Partizan a special situation - Feb 24, 2016

In my 6th season professionally I got a call to play for the historic Partizan Belgrade team. I have heard so many great things about this club I was vey anxious to play for a club of this magnitude. I arrived in great standing with a very good season before in the Russian League playing with Spartak Primorie Vladivostok.
I can't describe the feelings I had when I played in front of the home crowd. The singing the chanting was exhilarating. There is nothing like 10-15 thousand people lifting up their team. The fans of Partizan are extremely passionate.
I started out the season very good in Partizan winning the first few games and playing solid in the Adriatic League. All of sudden going for a loose ball a guy leaps and lands directly on my ankle! It was a high ankle sprain the first of my career! It was a devastating blow. I didn't recover fast enough and when I did play the next few games my rhythm was totally off and I wasn't competing at the high level that was needed to stay there. So I was released thereafter shortly and it was the first time I have bee release by a club.
I learned a valuable lessons this year.
I learned that even though things might not go your way that doesn't mean it was a total failure. The fans still embrace me today as a player in the Partizan Brotherhood. When I step on the court my heart and determination matched their energy and enthusiasm. I learned how to battle back from injury and maintain my composure. I'm a firm believer in things happen for a reason and it's how you react to the circumstances that allow you to grow as a person. I have to thank Partizan for giving me the opportunity to play in Euroleague and high level basketball. The fans still embrace me and I played for legendary coach Dule Vujosevic.

History was made in Radom!- Feb.24, 2016  (by Torey)

When I signed to play for Rosa Radom this summer I knew the club was an ambitious to play at a high level. We competed in the FIBA Europe Cup and advance to the round of 32. We gained valuable experience playing as many as 3 games a week. We play strong teams from Finland, Sweden, Macedonia, Germany, and Turkey. We explored basketball on high levels and it really brought our team together. Fast forward to the Polish Cup held in Dabrowa 3 games in 4 days! It was a grind [read more]
