The University at Buffalo men’s basketball team has added a 6-foot-5 wing player from Serbia, the team announced Tuesday.
Nikola Rakicevic steps into a roster opening created when UB lost star forward Justin Moss, removed from the team after his involvement in an on-campus theft.
Rakicevic played for Serbia in the Under-17 World Championships in Dubai in 2014 and was named to the all-tournament team after averaging 12.4 points and 5.7 rebounds. He scored 19 points in 27 minutes in a game against the United States, which won the gold medal. Serbia won a bronze. He most recently played for a junior team out of Belgrade.
