Alex Gavrilovic, a former IMG Academy basketball program post-grad, was recently featured for his role as a freshman with the University of Dayton men's basketball team.
From the Dayton Daily News:
That his teammates will look to him to be everything from translator and taste-tester to their tour guide for much of the next 10 days only seems natural.
The University of Dayton basketball team leaves today on a European trip that includes stops â and games â in the Netherlands, Belgium and especially France, the home of Flyers new big man, Alex Gavrilovic.
As for how far the other players will follow the 6-foot-9 freshman's lead, well, that's the question...
Corinne said IMG coach Dan Barto and Pat Skerry, the Providence assistant who recruited Alex then moved to Pitt, helped her son, who decided to sit out again last season, polish his skills at IMG and take online college courses from France while letting the recruiting process begin anew.
Taking over the Dayton program in April, Archie Miller made Gavrilovic â who has never witnessed the packed house atmosphere at UD Arena â his first signee.
âWhen I visited in May the court wasn't even there,â Alex said. âThey were having graduation.â
