This is old news but it highlights a BYU great. At the 2008 Euroleague Basketball Final Four 50 legends of the previous 50 years of European club basketball were honored on center court. BYU's own Kresimir Cosic (1948-1995) was one of the players honors for his contributions as a player and coach. Check out a video of his daughter talking about Cosic.

Lee Cummard's signing with Alba Berlin was also announced on the Euroleague website.

In other European news, former Cougar Trent Plaisted has signed to play with BC Zadar. Plaisted played part of last season in Italy but returned to the states due to an injury. He played this past summer with the Detroit Pistons in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Zadar is the same team Cosic played for and the team's arena is named after Cosic.
