Croatian Marko Banic (205 cm) is the latest addition to the roster of Estudiantes Madrid from Spain’s Liga Endesa for the 2013-14 season. Banic is coming off a brief and disappointing run with Unics Kazan (Russia-PBL) in 2012-13, and is hoping that a return to Spain this season will yield a better outcome. He played one game in the Russian league, failing to tally a single point and only managing to grab a single rebound. In 2 Eurocup games he was able to average 1.5 ppg and 1.0 rpg. He left the club in November 2012.
Banic last played in Spain in 2011-12 for Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket. He played 20 games for them in the Euroleague and was able to average 13.3 ppg and 4.0 rpg. He logged 34 games in the Spanish ACB and hit averages of 11.5 ppg and 4.3 rpg.
