Tiago Splitter

Caja Laboral

ACB (Spanish League): 5-1

EuroLeague: 2-1

Age: 24

Height: 7' 0"

Weight: 240

1st round, 28th pick, 2007

In EuroLeague play, Tiago lead a Caja Laboral 82-76 win over Union Olimpija. He had 11 points and 7 rebounds in 30 minutes. Fellow Brazilian Marcelinho Huertas had 21 points for the victors. Amazingly, Huertas had 0 assists in the game. At 2-1, Caja is a game behind Lottomatica Roma in Group C.

Highlights of the win over Union include some good touch by Tiago around the basket with his left hand.

In ACB play, Caja got an 86-79 home win over Gran Canaria. Tiago had 15 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists as Caja remains one game out of first in the league.

There is a good highlight at about 1:30 where Tiago finishes with some skill around the basket.

Nando De Colo


ACB (Spanish League): 5-1

EuroCup : 0-0

Age: 22

Height: 6' 5"

Weight: 185

2nd round, 53rd pick, 2009

EuroCup doesn't get underway for two more weeks so we'll only get one game a week from Nando for a bit.

This week Valencia improves to 5-1 wtih 82-67 win over Fuenla. Nando again turned the ball over 5 times. His 10 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists are nice though. He seems to do a good job of stuffing the stat sheet. Both good and bad stats.

Not many highlights of Nando, but Victor Claver throws down a pretty nasty dunk.

James Gist

Height: 6' 9"

Weight: 220

2nd round, 57th pick, 2008

James isn't in the D-League. He's not anywhere I can find him.
