Drew Nicholas in Italy

Drew Nicholas (1999-03) is playing in the Euroleague this year for Italy's Benetton Treviso. Drew has lead the league in scoring for the past two seasons and is leading the league again this year.

Here is his Euroleague player profile, which says this about his history after leaving Maryland:

Selected in the 2003 USBL Draft by Texas Rim Rockers (#59)... moved to Italy for the 2003-04 season, signed by Fabriano Basket, in the Italian Legadue... signed for the 2004-05 season by Basket Livorno... at the end of the Italian regular season, moved to Spain, signed for the remainder of the season by Taugres Saski Baskonia Vitoria... back to Italy for the 2005-06 season, signed by Benetton Basket Treviso.

My favorite Drew Nicholas memory is when he hit the last second three-pointer to win the game against UNC-Wilmington in the 1st round of the 2003 NCAA tournament.
