Casper Ware (177 cm, Long Beach State’12) is making the jump to Italy’s SerieA, joining Umana Reyer Venezia for the 2013-14 season. He played 2012-13 in Italy’s Lega Due for Novipiu Casale Monferrato.
In 36 games playing in the Lega Due Ware averaged 20.4 ppg and 4.2 apg, decent averages for his rookie season as a pro. Novipiu Casale reached as far as the semifinals in Lega Due in 2013. He showed his scoring prowess last season, but will be looked on to deliver a more well-rounded game now that he’s in Italy’s biggest basketball stage.
