Nick Oudendag joins Igokea

Nick Oudendag (210 cm) has agreed terms with Bosnian team Igokea and will play in the Adriatic League this season. Nick Oudendag is a member of the Dutch National Team and averaged 10 ppg and 8.3 rpg during the Eurobasket 2015 qualifications this summer. During that campaign the Netherlands booked two sensational victories against Montenegro and ended second behind Israel in group B, but before Montenegro and Bulgaria. With this second place the Netherlands qualified for Eurobasket 2015 which is the first time in 25 years that the Dutch will play at that stage.

Nick Oudendag is headed to Banja Luka (capital of the Serbian part of Bosnia) and from there will travel to Aleksandrovac where he will join Igokea. Igokea has won the Bosnian Championship two seasons in a row and also plays in the Adriatic League against other elite teams from the former Yugoslav Republics. During the 2012/2013 season Igokea even was the regular season champion of that league but lost the semi-final against Partizan Belgrade from Serbia. Otherwise Igoeka would have qualified for the Euroleague last season. Nick Oudendag has been a member of the Dutch National Team ever since he made his debut in the U18 team at the Albert Schweitzer Tournament in Mannheim, Germany in 2004 (Unofficial World Championships U18). Nick Oudendag will be only the second Dutch player in history to sign with a team from the former Yugoslavia. The first one was Remon van de Hare who played for Olimpija Ljubljana during the 2005/2006 season.
