Sasa Goes to Greece

After four years at Penn State, which included the highs and lows of an ACL tear and a break-out senior season, Sasa Borovnjak has been signed overseas to play professional basketball.

Joining his brother and father who have also played professionally in Europe, Sasa will play for Ikaros Kallitheas out of Greece. The team finished 6th (12-14) in their last season of play for the A1 league.

During his senior season, the 6’9”, 240-lb forward averaged 7.4 points per game as well as 3.6 rebounds per game. He became the team’s 3rd-leading scorer throughout Big Ten play and ended his career as 3rd all-time in shooting percentage at 52.4%.

Having graduated with a degree in Marketing this past May, Sasa moved back home to Belgrade, Serbia to continue his basketball career. The news of Sasa’s signing broke this morning when Penn State Head Coach Pat Chambers tweeted: “Congrats to Sasa on his 1st pro contract!” as well as this link with more information.

We wish the best of luck to Sasa as he brings his talents to Greece. Opa!
