    Came across this blog from Kevin's girlfriend Katey. A good way to keep up with Kevin.

    Hi!!

    Okay so it has been almost 2 weeks since Kev has been in Gran Canaria! Let me fill you in on some updates from the island….

    It didn’t take Kev more than a day on the island to realize that things in Europe are smaller (cars, parking garages, elevators, etc.).. This has led to some issues for him over there. For example dinging the car the first day he got it trying to get out of the parking garage…. He has also had some issues with doors over there. He has gotten locked out of the apartment (twice for 15 mins) because he couldn’t figure out how to work the keys. Also, when leaving the grocery store, he ran into the door thinking that it was going to open on the right when it really opened in the middle…In his words, “I feel like a chicken with my head cut off over here!” Looks like it is more than the Spanish language that we are going to need to pick up quickly.

    Other than all of the difficulties that come with moving to an entirely new place, he has thoroughly enjoyed his first week and a half and is starting to get into his routine. He also got to go to the first soccer game last night, which he said was an awesome experience (Duh it’s the best sport ever )! He absolutely loves his teammates and staff and can’t wait to get the season started!! His first exhibition game is coming up in Ourense, Spain so he is looking forward to that!

    Much more at her blog in the first 2 posts.

    Wow, somehow I hadn't pieced together that Gran Canaria is the Canary islands. Being down off the coast of Africa, that's quite the trip. Pulling it up, looks like 875 miles to Sevilla, which might be the next closest team.

    Well, Gran Canaria lost to LABORAL KUTXA BASKONIA 77-67 (Box score), but Kevin had a nice stat line, with 16 points and 3 assists:

    Interesting aside: Kim Tillie, big bro of Zag recruit Killian Tillie, is on the roster for the winning team.

    Tough news for one of Kevin's teammates:
    Former Louisville basketball player Kyle Kuric will undergo surgery to remove a tumor from his brain, his Spanish professional club announced Tuesday.

    Kuric, who played four years at U of L and helped the Cards reach the 2012 Final Four, went to a hospital in Barcelona with a migraine, and doctors discovered the tumor, a release from CB Gran Canarias said.

    The club said Kuric has a meningioma, which the Mayo Clinic defines as a tumor that "arises from the meninges, the membranes that surround your brain and spinal cord."

    Kuric, a 6-foot-4 wing, has played the last three years in Spain, first with Asefa Estudiantes and then with Gran Canarias, where he signed last year.

    Thanks ZN, I was wondering why Kyle did not play, he was their best player up until now....

    The team seems pretty tight group, perhaps isolation on a beautiful island contributes to that.

    The fans of Gran Canaria remind me of those of GU.

    I don't see fellow Canadian Levon Kendall on the scoring sheet, but he is listed on their roster.

    He may not be laying at the moment, have a look at the article below, Kyle is not the only one at GC dealing with a brain tumour.

    I know it is early in the season, but right now Gran Canaria is rated (tied) as the 5th best team in Europe....

    Hmm. Interesting... Kevin with nice point total and assists, but with 5 turnovers in a loss to Alba Berlin, after leading by double digits the first 3/4 of the game ...
