Terrell Stoglin Playing in Greece

Terrell Stoglin (2010-12) signed a deal to play for Ilysiakos Athens in Greece's top pro league last month. Here's a translation of the team's press release:
H KAE HLYSIAKOS announces the signing of Terrel Stoglin. The American guard signed a contract with Ilisiakos until the end of the season. Stoglin was born on March 11, 1991 and is 1.85m in height, playing the position of guard.

He graduated from the University of Maryland and in his final year (2001-12) he averaged 21.6 points, 2.6 assists, and 2.4 rebounds.

This is a great scorer, who can direct the game very well for his team.

The new American will arrive with Ilisiakos in Greece next Friday (Nov. 30) and after the match with Apollon Patras, will be made available by [head coach] George Zevgoli.
Either the team's public relations writer or Google Translate is confused about the translation of the word "graduated"; not sure which one is at fault.

So far, in two games, Stoglin is filling up the stat sheet with 25.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.5 assists as a starter playing 36 minutes per game. Ilysiakos is currently mired in last place in the league, having won their first game back in October and then losing the last 9 straight.
