The Drake Men’s basketball team has yet another foreign player joining them for the 2017-18 season. Freshman forward Antonio Pilipovic is from Germany and was a late addition to new head coach Niko Medved’s first recruiting class. After several weeks on campus Pilipovic couldn’t be happier with his decision to come to Des Moines.
Pilipovic played for Rhein Stars Köln the past two seasons and the second-highest level of basketball in Germany. He is one of three players in the Bulldogs 2017 recruiting class. The others are Jalen Gibbs from Maryland and Noah Thomas from Australia.
