The Baltimore Sun's 10 Year Anniversary Series: Andre Collins

Ten years ago, Maryland won the National Championship. If only there were some sort of blog to let you know whatever happened to those players? Oh well. The Baltimore Sun is filling that void with their ongoing "Where Are They Now?" series about the 2002 championship players. In this edition, they catch up with Italian league star, Andre Collins (2001-04). Here's a small excerpt; go read the whole story:
Today Collins is 22 games into his sixth professional season, and for the first time in three years, the Eastern Shore native is back to his normal self. Injuries with Bologna and Pesaro limited him significantly, but Collins is 100 percent healthy and thriving on a team that fits him to a T. [...]

Collins, who averages 14.5 points and 5.7 assists, is enjoying his time with Otto Caserta – currently the 10th-place team in Serie A out of 17. While soccer remains the sport of kings in Europe, Italian League basketball has a fairly rabid following. Collins said “it’s impossible to go to a restaurant” and not be noticed by fans and autograph seekers.
