Basketball star will tip off in Europe

One of Vancouver Island University’s basketball greats will keep playing above the rim.

Andrew Kaban, the Mariners hoops program’s second-leading scorer of all time, signed a contract to play professionally in Copenhagen, Denmark, with the Virum Vipers.

M’s coach Tony Bryce noted in a press release that it isn’t easy to secure a pro contract in Europe as teams are only allowed two international players.

The coach “could not be happier” to see his former standout player’s success.

“Andrew is the hardest-working and most committed player I have ever had the pleasure of working with…” said Bryce. “I am very proud of Andrew and all he has done for our program and am very excited to follow his success overseas.”
