Overseas Updates

A number of former Panther men's basketball players are continuing their careers overseas. While a lot of those seasons are just getting underway, and player moves are still being made, here are where some former Panthers are scheduled to play this year.

Boo Davis - Harem SC (Italy)
Shaun Fountain - Vichy (France)
Paige Paulsen - Huesca (Spain)
Marcus Skinner - Piratas (Columbia)
Joah Tucker - St. Quentin (France)
Clay Tucker - BC Kyiv (Ukraine)

This is still an abbreviated list for now, with a handful of others that will likely sign contracts in the next month or so. Over the last few years, there have typically been a dozen or so former Panthers playing overseas at one time.

If you want to try and keep up yourself on some of the Panthers playing overseas, a great spot to go is Eurobasket. Some information is more consistent than others, and some of the websites require a translation that isn't always clear, but you can still get some stats and news notes.
