Nik Caner-Medley Makes the Eurocup Top 16

This month, I have paid a lot of attention to all the Terps playing in the Euroleague Top 16. But there's another continent-wide tournament going on right now in Europe: the Eurocup. The Eurocup is the second-tier tournament in Europe, where teams qualify based on their previous season's accomplishments in their national leagues and tournaments. The Eurocup winner is invited to participate in the following year's Euroleague.

This year, Nik Caner-Medley's (2002-06) team, Asefa Estudiantes of Madrid, Spain, has reached the Eurocup's Top 16 stage, where they are currently 2-0 atop Group K. Nik is averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game so far in the tournament. Here's Estudiantes' Eurocup club profile and Nik Caner-Medley's Eurocup player profile.
